A group of high schoolers in the Green Bay, Wisc. area are learning about careers in environmental science thanks to the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program . The program, supported by the University of Wisconsin, has involved more than 700 students since its 2003 launch.
“We have almost ten years of data,” said Annette Pelegrin, program coordinator. “It began in 2003 with five watersheds. We’ve trained teachers and schools that are interested and showed them how to measure different parameters.”
Those include flow, temperature, transparency and turbidity of the program’s streams. YSI 55 meters are used to measure dissolved oxygen and levels of phosphorus, ammonia and nitrogen are checked with a Hach colorimeter.Read More
Springfield, Ohio, a college town of 60,000 in southwestern Ohio, sits on the confluence of the Mad River and Buck Creek. Springfield’s streams are as much a part of the city as is Wittenberg University. The streams and the university’s brick infrastructure stand as a constant backdrop to the action of the community but do not often draw attention themselves.
Over the next year, however, Springfield will be paying close attention to its waterways in an effort to eliminate illegal discharges.
“The city is required to determine the location of every pipe that enters Springfield’s streams,” said Sky Schelle, the stormwater coordinator for the city of Springfield. “If a pipe is flowing, we must determine the source of the flow.Read More
Surveying waterways for defining habitats and ranges may soon be much quicker and easier thanks to the applied use of environmental DNA (eDNA). Traditional studies have relied upon the slow, difficult, and somewhat haphazard process of catching fauna in the field using any number of techniques. This is even more difficult than usual when the target of the study is an endangered animal.
A new company NatureMetrics , which spun-out from the University of East Anglia (UEA) , is taking on this challenge with its eDNA tech.
“We were founded to work on developing high-throughput ways of measuring biodiversity, and environmental DNA is one element of that,” Dr. Kat Bruce , the director of NatureMetrics, remarks to EM.Read More
