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
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.
Platform used; Aluminum 25ft barge
