Limnology course data

Troy Keller, 2010's Limnology instructor, stopped by with the idea of collaborating to archive data collected by his students this summer. Here are some notes:

Lakes:
Douglas
Burt
Long
Black
1 other, I believe

Variables:
secchi depth
chlorophyll
plankton (zoo)
physio-chemical - tp, tn, (pH, DO, temp profile)
benthic grab sample (dredge bottom for inverts)

Classes on Tues and Thursday. Data collection will commence on Tues, June 29th on Douglas Lake. GPS locations will be taken at each point, several points per lake.

One option is to create a project for the class and put their work (abstract, methods, data, personnel) under there. Will need to figure out how to organize the data (e.g., by lake) and how/whether to keep it separate from non-class data.
