Averaged Salinity Distribution in the Suwanne River Estuary Under Medium-Flow Conditions, 2000
Puzzle Directions: Click on a puzzle piece and drag it where you want it. When you connect two pieces correctly, they will join together. This is an extra hard double-sided puzzle. The same map is printed on both sides the pieces. Some of the pieces are turned over to the wrong side. To flip a piece over, hold down the "T" key and click on the puzzle piece. Mix up the pieces again. View finished map in pop-up window.
Title: Averaged Salinity Distribution in the Suwanne River Estuary Under Medium-Flow Conditions Projection: Unknown Source Bounding Coordinates: W: -83'15 E: -83 N: 29'22 S: 29'14
Description: This map from the U. S. Geological Survey Water Resources Investigation Report number 99-4268 shows vertically averaged salinity distribution in the upper Suwannee River Estuary near Suwannee, Florida, under medium-flow conditions. Regression analyses showed that salinity concentrations measured in parts per thousand, or ppt, tended to be inversely proportional to the daily mean discharge of the river. These regressions were used to predict the maximum longitudinal extent of isohalines under medium-flow conditions. Isohaline locations shown in red were calculated from the regressions, whereas locations shown in yellow were estimated. The isohalines range from 0.5 ppt to 15 ppt. Source: Gina M.
