The Everglades Depth Estimation Network (EDEN) is an integrated
network of real-time water-level monitoring, ground-elevation modeling, and water-surface
modeling that provides scientists and managers with current (1999-present), online
water-depth information for the entire freshwater portion of the Greater Everglades.
Presented on a 400-square-meter grid spacing, EDEN offers a consistent and documented
dataset that can be used by scientists and managers to (1) guide large-scale field
operations, (2) integrate hydrologic and ecological responses, and (3) support
biological and ecological assessments that measure ecosystem responses to the
implementation of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan.
