Designed for convenient storage, organization, and transport into the field, this backpack contains everything you need to introduce students to marine water testing. Instrumentation and chemical test kits are included for determining acidity, alkalinity, ammonia, carbon dioxide, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, nitrogen, phosphate, salinity, conductivity, temperature, and more. Students will learn how to collect water samples and data using the included secchi disks, pH/temperature meter, and conductivity/TDS tester. The included teacher’s manual outlines background information, classroom activities, and detailed field testing procedure to thoroughly introduce each parameter. Laminated laboratory instruction cards and reporducible lab activity sheets are also provided. An accompanying CD-ROM also features definition of terms perfect for use in presentations or as transparencies.
