Unformatted text preview: 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 sampling can occur over a 4-5 week period....
