Lab 1, Part II- Estuarine Study It is our hypothesis that by increasing the amount of development around the  swash at Briar Cliff Acres in North Myrtle Beach, the amount of primary production  would increase over time due to inputs from runoff.  The water parameters in which we  are interested in studying are dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, salinity, total  suspended solids (TSS), chlorophyll a, water flow, and water height.  The equipment  that is needed for this study includes a YSI, a hand-held Flow Tracker, four tide staffs,  72 500 mL plastic bottles, and a cooler of ice.  Four sampling sites have been chosen  along the creek and are marked on the attached picture of the swash.  All of the  sampling sites are easily accessible on foot.  Due to the time restrictions of this class,  sampling can occur over a 4-5 week period.  However, to fully understand the impacts

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
