Two-year hydrograph at Corkscrew

About a month and a half into the dry season ...

The water level in Corkscrew Swamp has already fallen a foot.

Can you see what habitat type
the water surface is dropping down into?

That puts the swamp at the same level as just before it received an October boost.

In fact, if you compare the blue line against the dotted white line, i.e. the long-term median stage, on the hydrograph above, you can clearly see that for most of the summer wet season, swamp stage was unusually low.

It's unusual to have October be
the rainiest month of the wet season.

The reason for that is shown in the rain chart above.
