South Florida is in the same boat.
|Notice how the swamp dropped the deepest|
during the drought, and jumped the quickest
with the return of the rains
But drought manifests itself differently ...
On the ground from one watershed to another.
Take for instance the Big Cypress.
It's water table drops much deeper and longer below ground than the adjacent Everglades.
Keeping the winter water table up goes hand in hand
With restoring the swamp's summer sheet flow regimes.
