Real-Time Water Surfaces and Water Depths
EDEN real-time water surfaces are created daily using real-time water level data for the EDEN network. Most data relayed by satellite or other telemetry have received little or no review. Inaccuracies in the data may be present because of instrument malfunctions or physical changes at the measurement site. A threshold comparison program eliminates daily values that appear erroneous (i.e. extremely high or low, extremely different from previous days). Subsequent review of the data may result in significant revisions to the data.
Users are cautioned to consider carefully the provisional nature of the information when using provisional data.
Within approximately 45 days after the end of each quarter (December 31, March 31, June 30, September 30), finalized and approved water level data are provided by SFWMD and ENP at which time real-time EDEN surfaces will be replaced by provisional surfaces. EDEN surfaces created with final, approved water level data from all agency gages will be available in approximately July of each year for the previous year's water year (October September).
(Note: NetCDF files contain up to three months worth of files; daily geotiff files have been zipped up (.zip) and contain a .tif and .aux file)
Note (6/17/2016): Due to issues transferring files, real-time surfaces may not be posted over the weekend. Missing files will be posted the following business day.
