Peat profiles of the Everglades in Florida: the stratigraphic features of the Upper Everglades and correlation with environmental changes



Peat profiles of the Everglades in Florida: the stratigraphic features of the Upper Everglades and correlation with environmental changes



Jour Washington Acad Sci 20(6): 89-106



Peat profiles obtained in the Everglades show that the area began as a sawgrass (Cladivm) marsh. A basal layer of brown, fibrous sawgrass peat accumulated over bed-rock and was succeeded by a surface layer of relatively dense, fine grained ooze. Lake Okechobee is a body of water in a hydrostatic condition; it was impounded relatively recently to a height of more than 20 ft. above sea level by the accumulation of the superimposed layer of sedimentary peat.
