A strange title for a stranger post, but it looks like I will be hooking up with Art Glowka (Patron Saint of Long Island Sound), Gary Wikfors (National Marine Fisheries) and some others in doing some studies on various parts and inputs into Long Island Sound.
I have been told by people better than me, that the nitrogen levels are very unchanging, but ammonia levels are interesting. I only know of Ammonia as a bacterially induced nitrogen reduction product.
I will handle chemical analysis and probably do some bacteria studies.
There will also be plankton sizing and species.
This will be done at various depths.
It has not been done or there is precious little data on it.
It will be interesting.
