Elevation Data for Surficial Wells for Monitoring of Wetland Restoration for the Disney Wilderness Preserve, Florida
Entry ID: DWP_Firesinwetlands_elevationdataforsurficialwells

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: 448 surficial wells have been installed for the monitoring of hydrology in
response to wetland restoration activities. One-time surveying of the ground
surface and top of wells was done shortly after installation.

The purpose of the dataset is to accurately determine the location and
elevation of surficial wells.

Quality
A licensed survey company employed standard survey accuracy and quality
controls. Cross-checking with site-wide aerial topographic surveying (which
resulted in 1-ft elevation contours) indicates these surveying data are
reasonably accurate.


Access Constraints
Requests for data should be directed to the DWP Research Coordinator. Data will
be provided in electronic format.


Use Constraints
Any reports or publications presenting or referring to these datasets must be
approved by the DWP Research Coordinator prior to publication. Proper credit
must be given to DWP and The Nature Conservancy.
