Summary
Abstract: The data set contains values for water temperature, pH, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, sample location cross section, and sampling depth at 5 sites. The sites are: Biscayne Canal at S-28 Little River Canal at S-27 Miami Canal at S-26 Snapper Creek Canal at S-22 Tamiami Canal at S-25B

A vital component in ecosystem restoration is the understanding of prerestoration water quality. The ... View entire text

Quality Data was collected at all the sites in 1996 and at the Snapper Creek Canal site in 1997 as well.


The positional accuracy of the sampling sites was determined using GPS techniques and published topographic maps.

Water-quality samples were collected upstream of discharge points of coastal canals in eastern Dade County during various seasons ... View entire text
