Handbook of Techniques and Guides for the Study of the San Francisco Bay-Delta-Estuary Complex, Part 1. Monitoring Techniques for the Measurement of Physico-Chemical and Biological Parameters.
Alameda County School Dept., Hayward, CA.; Contra Costa County Dept. of Education, Pleasant Hill, CA.
Project MER (Marine Ecology Research) is aimed at improving environmental education in the San Francisco Bay Area schools. As part of meeting this goal, it is hoped that students and teachers can see the results of their efforts being put to practical use. This guide is the first of a series produced to help the students and teachers gather data concerning the San Francisco Bay-Delta-Estuary Complex and to organize these data in a form that could be a contribution to the literature of science and serve as the groundwork upon which knowledgeable decisions about the environment could be based. Presented in this guide are techniques and procedures for measuring and evaluating the ecology of aquatic environment of the Bay. Chapter I deals with how physical and chemical factors affect the distribution of aquatic life. General information on the effect of a particular factor precedes a technical presentation on how to measure or evaluate that factor. The second chapter discusses techniques for studying the plankton population and the third discusses techniques for studying bacterial populations. Field data sheets for recording data are included in the appendices. Related documents are SE 016 646--SE 016 650. (JP)
