The end of week two! (PLE day 10)
The Pymatuning wetlanders went to Pymatuning marsh and Hartstown swamp this morning to collect the wells that we installed during the first week of class. We also made measurements of redox potential at different depths within the marsh, and used the measurements to make some predictions about composition of the gases that this marsh is currently producing. In anticipation of the busy, final week of class, the students then had the afternoon to catchup on their plant collections and work on their macroinvertebrate project.
