  • Stream Quality Data Analysis At Tulip Spring, New Jersey

    Stream Quality Data Analysis Abstract A Stream Quality Data was collected at Tulip Spring, New Jersey through a macroinvertebrate collection that had been used to identify the quality in which this freshwater animals were living. Collection and preservation of such invertebrates help in the determination of its water quality and capacity to tolerate pollution. Also a biotic index calculation was applied in order for the result of our findings giving a polluted water quality. The streams were not clean as predictions after been able to experience a moment at the Tulip Springs in the south Mountain Reservation in New Jersey October 20th, 2015. Introduction First, stream quality had been investigated to measure pollution from a biological perspective.…

  • Genesee Creek River Lab Report

    This laboratory experiment was conducted in Greenfield Station Genesee Creek River to determine the environment’s effect on the amount of diverse biological communities in a lotic river. Shredders are macroinvertebrates that feed on coarse particle organic material (CPOM). Macroinvertebrates usually stay in the same habitat and do not migrate, which may be due to them being trapped or frequently receiving a good source of food. They are also an essential part of the freshwater ecosystem by…

  • Nequasset Case Study

    Problem What is the aquatic health of the Nequasset lake tributaries as analyzed through chemical and biological parameters as well as physical habitat assessment? What factors, both natural and human-influenced, contribute (positively or negatively) to the health of the Nequasset lake tributaries? Background Information Weather or not we realize it, as people that (presumably) live in the Bath area, the streams that flow into Nequasset are very important to our survival. They are numerous, and…

  • Meramec River: Environmental Analysis

    The Meramec River is located in the upper Ozark Highlands in central-eastern Missouri and spans 218 linear miles before discharging into the Mississippi River in St. Louis (Blanc 1999, Thom et al, Figure 1). This watershed is dominated by Oak-Hickory forests and karst topography; and the Meramec River follows a riffle-run pattern of stream flow (Blanc 1999, Thom et al). Before people dominated the landscape, the driving forces of nature shaped the topography and the subsequent ecosystems that…

  • U-High Creek Water Quality

    The water quality of the U-High Creek was identified as excellent, but not all bodies of water have excellent water quality. Humans can pollute water in many ways, and make it unsuitable for organisms living in the water. One way humans can pollute water is when farmers put pesticides and fertilizers on their crops, which contain harmful chemicals like phosphates and Nitrates. When it rains, the pesticides get washed away through the soil and end up in rivers, streams, and creeks, therefore…

  • Water Diversity In Urban Areas

    Introduction: Urban areas contribute pollutants that wash off of areas that are not native to the area (Sanders, et. Al. 2001). These pollutants caused by urban areas contribute the deterioration of water quality in stream and runs which make up a significant part of the bodies of water in the state of Ohio. Water quality is crucial for the fish and macroinvertebrates species that can sustain a community in that specific body of water, any change in this quality can change the entire diversity…

  • Spring Creek Chemistry Lab Report

    ensure the pH probe was reading correctly. Then the probe was submerged into slow moving water. The pH value obtained from the creek was checked against a pH strip. Once the probe displayed a constant value, the value was recorded, and the probe was taken out of the creek and placed back in the storage solution. The conductivity meter was standardized by placing it into a standard conductivity solution of 10 ± 0.1 µS. The value was recorded, and then the meter was placed into the creek. Once…

  • Effects Of Water Pollution In China

    The vibrant colors of magenta and orange filled the body of water by the drop, as it oozed from the rancid, corroded drainage system (Kang 30). The mixing of acidic chemicals created these colors, and produced nasty, murky water. Kang states, “When oil spills occur, the water is coated with a greasy sheen, and ugly, yellow bubbles seem to blister its surface” (30). When looking at photographs of the Yellow River, the waterway is a brownish-red tint, and looks like humans tossed dead carcasses…
