The authors have defined forty-seven lake regions of Florida by mapping and analyzing water quality data sets in conjunction with information on soils, physiography, geology, vegetation, climate, and land use/land cover, as well as relying on the expert judgement of local limnologists and resource managers. This spatial framework has also been used to help illustrate the regional differences in parameters such as total phosphorus and acid-neutralizing capacity. The Florida lake regions and associated maps and graphs of lake chemistry are intended to provide an effective framework for assessing lake characteristics, calibrating predictive models, guiding lake management, and framing expectations by lake users and lakeshore residents.
