Campus Ecology and
At Mount Holyoke
College we have initiated an Environmental Monitoring. As part of
this program we are monitoring water quality in the Stony Brook watershed,
and weather parameters at four locations.
We are measuring both physiochemical and biological indicators
of water quality.
- Physiochemical - water flow, temperature, dissolved oxygen,
pH, nutrients (nitrate, ammonium ion, phosphate), turbidity.
- Biological (infrequently) - fitoplankton (algae), zooplankton,
invertebrates and fish.
