Data Collection Information

A YSI Pro-DSS and Pro Plus are used to collect the water's physical characteristics in situ. The probe's pH and conductivity are calibrated monthly, while DO% is calibrated once before each field day, and twice-more throughout the sample collection. All chemical samples are sent to an accredited laboratory for analysis, where samples are also subject to the lab's QAQC. Samples are held on ice until delivery to the lab - within 24 hours of collection.
