Water Quality & Velocity Lab

From the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (ANERR) research vessel, students will use various types of water monitoring equipment to explore selected parameters of water quality (primarily salinity) and quantity (primarily velocity and discharger) to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of river water entering the Apalachicola Bay.
