Our (meaning me and my classmate Charles. LOL) Marine Pollution class had our field exercise this morning in Manila. The exercise is supposed to prepare us for the Manila Bay field work on Feb 22. Sampled dissolved oxygen (mg/L and %saturation), conductivity, specific conductivity, salinity, temperature, secchi depth, and total depth.
Our sampling sites:
And where we had lunch:
Right beside the Chinatown estero @_@ Made sure to order bottled softdrinks and didn’t use their ice.
Manila Bay field work on the 22nd: more sampling sites, more replicates, and more things to do (DO determination by titration, BOD, COD). And there are only two of us in the class @_@ Wahoo!
