The weather was somewhere in the high 70′s or low 80′s. There was a slight breeze and it was sunny. We began at 10:00 AM. The Secchi Depths measured were 0.435 meters and 0.41 meters. The boating traffic was low-medium. There were 3 boats when we began and there was a motorboat 2-3 meters from us. The subsurface temperature was 26 degrees Celsius and the oxygen levels were 6.45 ppm and 79.5% saturation. The 1m depth temperature was 25.9 degrees Celsius and the oxygen levels were 6.45 ppm and 78.8% saturation. The time that we ended was 10:09 AM.
Wow, were we really that speedy with our sampling? I guess 10 people can accomplish a lot in 10 minutes!
We should note that the 1 m depth oxygen and temp readings were quite variable, so we don’t have much confidence in those values.
We should also probably note that the lake depth at the dock was about 2.5-3m.
Thanks for posting, Steven!
Interesting. Hopefully aside from the boat disturbance our findings were moderately accurate. Is it important to mention that we were sampling from a dock, and therefore we were very close to the shoreline?
Thanks so much for posting
With the additional comments given above, it will be perfectly accurate. Thanks for posting!
Looks good to me. Thanks for posting Steven!
I agree with the above suggestions to ensure the accuracy of our sampling. Looks good overall, thanks for the post
This looks good to me, though I agree with the variable readings for oxygen at the 1m depth. Thanks for posting!
Great job Steven! The information looks great. I also had in my notes the depth at which we collected the samples which ranged between 2.00 meters to 2.6 meters. Should this also be mentioned in our field notes? (samples 1 and 2 which were the ones that we counted were collected at 2.05m, sample 3 at 2.00m, and sample 4 at 2.6m)
