Time series electromagnetic induction-log (TSEMIL) datasets are collected from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cased or uncased monitoring wells to evaluate changes in water conductivity over time. TSEMIL datasets consist of a series of individual electromagnetic induction logs collected at a frequency of months or years that have been compiled into a dataset by eliminating small uniform offsets in bulk conductivity between logs likely caused by minor variations in calibration. At depths where water conductivity is not changing through time, each log is typically within about ±15 mS/m of the median of the dataset at any given depth, which is within the stated repeatability specifications of the probe (Mount Sopris Instrument...

Annual actual evapotranspiration (ETa) rates in 55 basins in Florida and parts of Alabama and Georgia were evaluated for 2000–17 using the Operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model at about a one-square kilometer resolution (Sepúlveda, 2021). SSEBop ETa rates were bias corrected on the basis of ETa rates computed from weather observations at 24 micrometeorological evapotranspiration flux (MEF) stations, stratified by land-use type and referred to as mETa rates. Uncorrected and bias-corrected SSEBop ETa rates were evaluated by comparison with independent estimates based on a crop-coefficient method for generalized land-use types (luETa) and a water-balance method for each basin (wbETa). Average...

Periphyton is a complex community of detritus, bacteria, fungi, and algae that grows attached to submerged substrates. Assemblage structure data for algae and cyanobacteria from periphyton samples were collected on a monthly basis from 2017 to 2021. Compiled data were reported as absolute abundance (cells) and biovolume per volume as well as absolute abundance (cells) and biovolume per area at four locations increasing in distance East of the L-67 canal in Water Conservation Area 3 (WCA 3) of the Florida Everglades immediately north of Everglades National Park. The periphyton assemblages were analyzed for five sample types including periphyton plates (Plates), invertebrate inclusion and exclusion plates (Inverts),...

An interdisciplinary and multiagency study was conducted in southern Florida to examine harmful algal bloom (HAB) dynamics on the Caloosahatchee River, which drains from Lake Okeechobee to the west into the Gulf of Mexico. Using in-situ mesocosm experiments, ammonium, nitrate, phosphate, and urea were altered from ambient conditions to determine the effects on cyanotoxin biosynthesis gene presence and quantity as measured via quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Eight experiments were conducted seasonally from May 2019 through July 2021 at the W.P. Franklin Lock and Dam. The experimental installations consisted of three floating metal cradles each containing four opaque fiberglass chambers filled with...

An interdisciplinary and multiagency study was completed to understand harmful algal bloom dynamics by describing the spatial and temporal patterns and drivers of phytoplankton community structure and cyanotoxin and cyanotoxin-gene concentrations in Lake Okeechobee and Okeechobee Waterways in South Florida. The Waterway includes the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers which drain the lake westward to the Gulf of Mexico and eastward to the Atlantic Ocean, respectively. Algae and cyanobacteria play crucial roles in aquatic ecosystems, but under favorable environmental conditions certain taxa experience population growth booms resulting in harmful algal blooms. Cyanobacteria are considered the most common bloom-formers...

The dataset includes water-quality sensor readings collected by the U.S Geological Survey (USGS) from the Caloosahatchee River at the Franklin Lock and Dam and 12 open-air fiberglass tanks filled with Caloosahatchee River water used for mesocosm experiments testing the effects of elevated nutrients on harmful algal bloom (HAB) dynamics. This dataset contains water quality sensor readings from two of eight total independent experiments conducted from June 8-11, 2020 and September 14-17, 2020. Each of the 12 tanks were randomly treated with either ammonium hydroxide, sodium nitrate, sodium phosphate, or left untreated (controls) for a total of three replicates of each treatment.

This data release provides data for quantifying the aquatic export of total carbon in a cypress swamp within the Big Cypress National Preserve, and is part of a larger carbon budget study. The U.S. Geological Survey operated two continuous streamflow and water-quality monitoring stations within the Big Cypress National Preserve in southern Florida from September 2015 to October 2017. Site-specific regression models were developed using continuously measured specific conductance and concomitant discretely collected total carbon (dissolved organic carbon, dissolved inorganic carbon, and particulate carbon) samples to calculate continuous concentrations of total carbon. Total carbon loads were calculated by multiplying...

Potential evapotranspiration (PET), and reference evapotranspiration (ETo) are estimated at a 1-kilometer spatial resolution and daily time-scale from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 for Florida, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and parts of Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee. PET and ETo were computed on the basis of solar radiation, meteorological data (min/max temperature, min/max relative humidity, and mean wind speed at 2-meter height), and shortwave blue-sky albedo data. Solar radiation was computed from Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) sensor data, blue-sky albedo was computed from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) MCD43A1 BRDF/Albedo data product,...

An interdisciplinary and multiagency study was undertaken to study harmful algal bloom (HAB) dynamics on the Caloosahatchee River, which drains to the west from Lake Okeechobee into the Gulf of Mexico. Algae and cyanobacteria play crucial roles in aquatic ecosystems, but under favorable environmental conditions certain taxa may experience population growth booms resulting in HABs. Four independent mesocosm experiments were conducted in September 2019, June 2020, September 2020, and February 2021 to capture natural temporal variability in water quality and phytoplankton assemblages. The experimental installation consisted of three floating metal cradles each containing four fiberglass chambers filled with native...
