Integrated 2D Surface-Groundwater Modeling of the Green Swamp, Florida
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Pete Singhofen, Gordon McClung
Three hurricanes passed directly over the Green Swamp in a 6-week period in 2004, producing near record flooding along the Withlacoochee River. A fully integrated 2D surface-groundwater model used to quantify the complex combination of surface runoff, lateral seepage from the surficial aquifer and upwelling from limestone outcroppings of the confined Floridan Aquifer emanating from the Green Swamp will be presented. Most of the data was prepared in GIS including various spatiotemporal data sets.
