  • Dataset Abstract
    The following abstract is from Sandoval (2013). The purpose of this research was to investigate the water balance, flushing time, and water chemistry of Taylor Slough; one of the main natural waterways of the coastal Everglades, during its early stages of restoration. Watershed flushing times were estimated as the surface water volume divided by the total water outputs. Both the water balance and water residence times were calculated on monthly from 2001 – 2011. Flushing times varied between 3 and 78 days, with the highest values occurring in December and the lowest in May. Flushing times were negatively correlated with evapotranspiration (ET), but were longer when surface water volume exceeded ET and shorter when ET exceeded water volume.
