Summary:
The Shark River Slough serves as an essential conduit for freshwater to much of Everglades National Park, FL and the downstream coastal waters. The Florida National Park Service Hydrology Research team monitors water levels in the slough using a long-term continuously recording water level network as well as a dense supplemental network of staff gauges throughout the slough which provide information on water stages at remote locations. The authors present the results of a correlation study of the Shark Slough water level gauge system which provides equations estimating water levels at most of the staff locations in the slough.

Summary: The Shark River Slough serves as an essential conduit for freshwater to much of Everglades National Park, FL and the downstream coastal waters. The Florida National Park Service Hydrology Research team monitors water levels in the slough using a long-term continuously recording water level network as well as a dense supplemental network of staff gauges throughout the slough which provide information on water stages at remote locations. The authors present the results of a correlation study of the Shark Slough water level gauge system which provides equations estimating water levels at most of the staff locations in the slough.
Summary: The authors used linear regression analysis to assess the linear relationships between water levels at different sites. The continuous stations in Shark Slough were found to correlate to a very high degree with those stations at close proximity and to a lesser degree with those stations which were more distant. The authors suggest using their results to determine which continuous recording gauges are essential for continued hydrologic monitoring,as well as providing a predictive relationship between nearby gauges--therefore eliminating the need for wide-scale monitoring. The report includes maps of the monitoring network.
