So anyways, on to Marys River after our day at Honeygrove Creek. Met up with Arne, Amy, and Alex and a short hike down to the river area. Arne gave a short talk on discharge and then the group split up to measure and calculate discharge in two sections of the river under the tutelage of Amy and Alex.

Discharge measurements began with a cross-sectional tape across the river


Next Alex and Amy explained the instrumentation and the proper way to take measurements



Students then took charge and took turns taking cross-sectional discharge measurements and converting to total river discharge


After discharge measurements were recorded, Arne led a short discussion on what the numbers meant and how measurement error could influence discharge volume estimates

On now to Saturday and our final day on the West Side
