Over the weekend, I read over the long packet I got from Marion. Most of it was specific sampling procedures for different types of things that might be in streams. Chemical components, biotic factors, and physical factors will be the three things I'll be focusing on.
The basic chemical measurements that I want to take in the field are the following:
dissolved O2 --> biochemical O2 demand?
Tomorrow, I need to figure out what we have in terms of equipment for measuring these.
I got a reply from Mike Wilson about the stream on campus, so I'll set up a time to meet with him. I also need to put together my proposal, the last missing piece is where I'll be conducting this research.
