Generalized Configuration of the Base of the Biscayne Aquifer in Broward County, USGS WRIR 87-4034, figure 37Entry ID: USGS_SOFIA_brwd_config_base_biscayne_arc
Abstract: The base of the Biscayne aquifer are shown in this map. The base is drawn on the bottom of highly permeable limestone or sandstone in the Tamiami Formation that is virtually contiguous with overlying rocks of very high permeability in the Fort Thompson Formation, Anastasia Formation, or Tamiami Formation. In general, the Biscayne aquifer is shallow, and the base deepens gradually in west and central Broward county. However, the aquifer thickens, and the base deepens very rapidly in the coastal area to more than 300 feet below sea level.
Provide fundamental background information that is basic for qualitative or quantitative evaluations of the ground water resource and the hydraulic response of the system to natural or artificial stresses.
