Note: The following list of topics may be modified later in the semester depending on weather and availability of the Center for Limnology's research ship, the LIMNOS. Our plan is to spend lab time prior to the work on the ship so that you'll be more familiar with the techniques for determining water column parameters, such as temperature, oxygen, and light penetration, and plankton sampling gear.
