Description:
I'm working (volunteering) with 'The Friends of the San Juans' part time. Mainly I am helpng them with water quality sampling.

I'm specifically helping them understand and interpret the data that this instrument collects when it is lowered down throught the water column.

At half-meter intervals it measures salinity, dissolved oxygen, temperature, light from the sun, etc. All important for the entire marine ecosystem which at the top supports the salmon fishery and the whales.

I am talking them into a project similar to my Barnegat Bay water quality study using satellite data.

It's great to dabble in science again.

Google 'Friends of the San Juans'. They're website is nice.
