FOR317: Stewardship Ecosystem Services Study Series: Assessing Forest Water Yield and Purification Ecosystem Services in the Lower Suwannee River Watershed, Florida

Figure 2. Normalized values for the Integrated Valuation and Ecosystem Services Tradeoff (InVEST) model estimates and measured water yield (WY; m3) volumes in the Lower Suwannee River watershed, Florida. The y axis values are InVEST model estimates and measured values, normalized on a scale of 0 to 1, and the x axis is year of measurement and model estimate. Note that non-normalized InVEST-modeled WY volumes were less than actual measured WY volumes; See Escobedo and Timilsina 2012 for possible explanations behind this difference.
