Summary
Abstract: The data are for dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and specific ultraviolet absorbance (SUVA) for surface water and pore water in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) water conservation areas.
It is well recognized that the chemical forms of mercury in the water column and sediments are intimately related to bioaccumulation and body burden. Interactions of mercury and dissolved organic ... View entire text

Quality Samples from select sites (ENR, STA 2, WCA-1, WCA-2, and WCA-3) were collected in June 2005 and were analyzed. The samples are part of a long term monitoring effort to identify changes in the concentration and chemical reactivity of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in the Everglades.

Surface water samples were collected at a single depth from 7 locations and at two depths ... View entire text
