Sewage Plant Data Analysis

[Note: Underlined text indicates a link that downloads additional content.] 

This lesson is designed to complement Project Oceanology’s “Sewage Plant Study” boat trip, although it can also be used as a stand-alone lesson. Students use Project Oceanology’s water quality dataset to look at geographic and seasonal variation in nutrient concentrations and other water quality parameters.  The activity can take place in the Project Oceanology computer lab immediately before or after a trip, or in the classroom after students have returned home.
