Existing procedures used to estimate discharge in wetland environments are evaluated. Suggestions are made for possible improved methodologies based on field investigation. Suggestions include changes of current sampling procedures, collecting additional samples, testing with calibrated computer programs, and/or use of advanced electronic flow measuring techniques and equipment. An application is presented at Taylor Slough in the Everglades National Park in Florida.
