We conducted a three-year field study from May 2018 to May 2021 at the Santa Fe River Sink-Rise flow system in O’Leno and River Rise Preserve State Parks in north-central Florida, USA, that involved the collection of hydrologic, geophysical, and meteorological datasets and photos. We collected hydrologic data (water level, specific conductance, and temperature) at eight surface water bodies (River Sink, River Rise, and six intermediate karst windows), seven deep wells, and four shallow wells. The Santa Fe River sinks at River Sink, flows through conduits that are ~20 m in diameter and ~30 m below the surface, periodically reemerges at karst windows, and finally emerges at River Rise. We also collected meteorological data at a site in O’Leno State Park (wind speed, gust speed, wind direction, rain, atmospheric pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and dew point). Our instrument network also included 14 seismometers (12 short period (L-22) and two broadband (CMG 3T) seismometers), four borehole and two platform tiltmeters, and 149 nodal seismometers for a one-month campaign. Bilek (2018) provide the seismic data, and the tilt data will soon be available. Finally, we deployed five motion cameras near seismometer stations to identify sources of seismic signals at the surface. All of the hydrologic and meteorological data and photos are included in this collection.
