Unformatted text preview: Ine Helationsnip between LOhClUCtIVIty and Alkalinity at Site 3: Mondavi Bridge Dawn Sumner and PCP Participants Main Points: ‘ Both Conductivity and Alkalinity are affected by evaporation ,. ’ Conductivity can be influenced by an .- influx of salts l - Alkalinity can be influenced by photosynthesis and respiration Data: Data were collected at site 3 between October 2005 and May 2006. Conductivity and Alkalinity were measured on the same samples using 553; X meter for conductivity and a Y titration for alkalinity. l : :02 " SUBS - Norman Bridge Con ductiwtv 25o 2m 0 H In a p n o Cn nducuvlly (us) 5 c: o Conductlvlw (us) .4 o c 4; a a in a . zoo ,-.— - a a WINDS 11ffif05 12!.26/05 Zfl‘UOEI M's/C5 SIZSfUEI 0 20 4D 60 80 100 120 Date Alkalinity (ppm) Data with a conductivity below 250 us and alkalinity less than 120 ppm show a strong linear correlation suggesting that both are changing due to evaporation or dilution from rain water. Above this range, there is no obvious correlation, suggesting that the two analyses are being affected by different processes.
