I have a data set which may be useful to you. Lynn Walter and I collected
seawater, estuarine and freshwater in Florida Bay, The Florida Keys,
Everglades and the Bahama Banks in May 1990, Jan. 91 and August 1991. We
determined, T, S, PCO2, Ca, Cl, Ph, and d13C of DIC. It was published in
Geology v. 22 p. 885-888, Oct. 94. However, brevity precluded listing
individual site information. If you're interested in latitude, longitude
and other parameters I could send you the whole data set as an Excel or
Also, there are several other groups currently working on these very
questions in more detail in Florida Bay and the Bahamas amongst other
As for humidity, I would guess that could be obtained from the National
Climate Data Center's Summary of the Day.
Hope this helps,
