The U. S. Geological Survey planned a scientific workshop on the Suwannee River Basin and Estuary to:
  1. discuss current and past research findings,
  2. identify information gaps and research priorities, and
  3. develop an action plan for coordinated and relevant research activities in the future.

This workshop built on the highly successful basin-wide conference sponsored by the Suwannee Basin Interagency Alliance that was held in 2001, in Live Oak, Florida. The September 2004 workshop focused on identifying information needs and priorities and developing partnerships. The USGS was seeking to define the role of the USGS SPCMSC (FISC) in conducting integrated research in the Suwannee River Basin, and to establish a cooperative program with other agencies.

Participants interested in river, floodplain, springs, estuary, or basin-wide issues were encouraged to attend. Topics for the 2004 workshop included:

  1. water quality and geochemistry: nutrient enrichment, reduction of nutrient loading to ground water, contaminants, and land use,
  2. hydrogeology: interactions among ground water, surface water and ecosystem, modeling, and baseline mapping,
  3. ecosystem dynamics: structure, process, species, and habitats (estuarine, riverine, floodplain, and wetland), and
  4. information management: data sharing, database development, geographic information system (GIS), and basin-wide models.

Abstracts of current research in the Suwannee River Basin were solicited for publication in the workshop proceedings, and corresponding posters were displayed at the workshop. Workshop coordinators requested submission of provisional summaries of information gaps, research priorities, or proposal concepts for future improvements. The deadline for submission of abstracts/research needs was July 15, 2004. Workshop proceedings contained abstracts, information needs and research priorities, and plans for partnered research activities.

This workshop was co-sponsored by: U.S. Geological Survey, Suwannee River Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission - Florida Marine Research Institute.
