Purpose
Collection of Radon and Resistivity profiles in Florida Bay and surrounding
waters to look for SGD that may be enhancing the recent algal blooms in the
region
Information to be Derived
Resistivity profiles through various portions of Florida Bay, Barnes Sound and
Blackwater sound looking for variations in subsurface resistivity which either
represent lithologic or groundwater salinity changes. Radon mapping concurrent
with resistivity provides additional data for the detection of enhanced
groundwater surface water interaction (SGD).
Summary
Approximately 45 line kilometers per day was collected during the study. This
included resistivity, radon and continuous surface water quality (salinity,
temperature, pH). Shinn, Reich and Hickey installed numerous monitoring wells
in Florida Bay in the mid 1990s and were revisited during this trip to collect
various groundwater parameters. Wells were selected in the study region of
eastern Florida Bay and were sampled for nutrients, trace metals, field
parameters (temp, salinity, pH), and Radon and Radium isotopes.
Notes
Platform used; Aluminum 25ft barge
