"Duration of flooding"

The swamp has finally filled up ...

To a near normal range (although still a little low).

The hydrograph above shows the rise and fall of the water table in Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve from 2014 to present.  The dotted white line is the long term average.  Horizontal changes in colors represent various vegetation types. 

But hydrologically it's both depth and duration,

That are critical to the health of the swamp.

We're still two months behind in terms of "duration of flooding" clock.
