The Greater Everglades Ecosystem Restoration (GEER) Science Conference and the Florida Bay and Adjacent Marine Systems Science Conference were, for the first time ever, held together to provide a joint forum for the exchange of information among scientists. The Joint Conference on the Science and Restoration of the Greater Everglades and Florida Bay Ecosystem was conducted from April 13 to 18 at the Westin Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, FL, just 25 miles from Tampa.

The purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for physical, biological, and social scientists to share their knowledge and research results concerning restoration of the greater Everglades and Florida Bay ecosystem. More than 650 people, including scientists from Federal and State agencies, universities, and other science organizations, attended the conference.

Several scientists from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) offices in St. Petersburg, Tampa, Gainesville, and Miami gave talks and poster presentations. In addition, staff from the USGS' South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) Web site and the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) conducted a usability study on the SOFIA Web site and demonstrated SOFIA's new Internet Map Server (IMS) product. Heather Henkel, Tracy Enright, and Kathy Pegram (USGS, St. Petersburg), Roy Sonenshein (USGS, Miami), and Tim Boozer (USGS, Ocala) helped with the demonstrations.

The USGS produced an Open-File Report, "U.S. Geological Survey Greater Everglades Science Program: 2002 Biennial Report," containing conference abstracts, as well as an extensive bibliography listing relevant documents produced from 1995 to 2003. A copy of this report was provided to each conference participant.
