Paleohydrology in North-Central Florida

This project developed tree-ring chronologies from living and remnant longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) at multiple sites in north-central Florida to reconstruct hydrologic conditions including streamflow and depth to groundwater.

Funding sources: Suwanee River Water Management District, St Johns River Water Management District
