GEOPHYSICAL MAPPING OF SALTWATER INTRUSION IN EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK David V. Fitterman Maria Deszcz-Pan U.S. Geological Survey Box MS Denver, CO Phone: FAX: e-mail: [email protected] Keywords: saltwater Florida book. water quality, monitoring wells The mapping of saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers has traditionally relied upon observation wells and collection of water samples.

This approach may miss important hydrologic features related to saltwater intrusion in areas where access is difficult and wells are widely spaced, such as the Everglades. Geophysical mapping of the freshwater/saltwater interface in Everglades National Park, Florida. A large survey with both frequency and time domain helicopterborne systems and ground EM measurements was carried out in the Everglades National Park, Florida, USA (Fitterman and.

Project Proposal for Program: FRAGILE ENVIRONMENTS Project Title: Geophysical Mapping of Freshwater/Saltwater Interface Location of Study Area: Initial scope of the project was a km 2 area in the Everglades. The most direct way, is through rain. The Everglades gets a lot of its water from rainfall (somewhere around 60 inches per year on average).

When it starts raining over south Florida, it rains everywhere including on our largest lake, Lake Okeechobee. This is the start of the most indirect way for water to flow into the Everglades.
