Temperature data collected in the Indian River Lagoon to evaluate groundwater seepage, Brevard County, Florida, 2017-2018
The data set includes temperature data from the base of the water column and below the bottom of the Indian River Lagoon, Brevard County, Florida. Data were collected near Eau Gallie, Melbourne, Florida and Riverwalk Park, Rockledge, Florida, on the western shore of the Lagoon. These data will ultimately be used to evaluate groundwater seepage. Data collection includes, temperature profiling using temperature stakes and distributed temperature sensing. Temperature stakes consist of 4 to 5 temperature sensors imbedded in 0.6 to 0.9 meter long polyvinyl chloride stakes that are designed to be driven into the sediment at the bottom of the lagoon. Temperature data were collected hourly at a resolution of 0.0625...
Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Water-Quality Surveys for Indian River Lagoon, near Titusville, Florida, August 2016-November 2017
The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) extends for 160 miles along Florida's east coast and is a complex system of three estuaries - Mosquito Lagoon, Banana River Lagoon, and Indian River Lagoon. Two concurrent phytoplankton blooms occurred in the IRL in 2011 that had detrimental ecological effects on the estuarine system. St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) is participating in a multi-agency effort to better characterize and understand the factors effecting algal dynamics of the IRL. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) worked in cooperation with the SJRWMD to study the spatial variability of water-quality conditions, especially conditions related to potential algal blooms, between sampling sites and the spatial...
This data represent a compilation of seagrass information for areas along the Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and Texas coasts from various source agencies. Seagrass areas were mapped from aerial photography taken between 1987 to 1999. The original source data were not all classified in the same manner, but the information from each of these sources was maintained in the final results.
We provide a comprehensive review of the status of non-native fishes in the central Indian River Lagoon (from Cape Canaveral to Grant-Valkaria, east of I-95) through literature review and field surveys. Historical records exist for 17 taxa (15 species, one hybrid, one species complex). We found historical records for one additional species and collected one species in our field survey that had never been recorded in the region before (and which we eradicated). Thus, we evaluate 19 total taxa herein. Of these, we document range expansion of four salt-tolerant cichlid species, extirpation of six species that were previously recorded from the area and eradication of three species. There was no noticeable change in...
