Danelle needed to go out and get data from her stream sites. It was a Sunday and I had time to go with her. So we went out and I got a glimpse of what her research looks like. While the field work isn’t anything too exciting, it was fun to be outside and with her!
You can only collect the data you find. We had to give up on this site because she couldn’t find the equipment deployed. Later she went back with Kevin (who helped her install it) and found it.
What you can’t see from the photos is how cold the water is. Its hard work reaching in and grabbing monitoring equipment from under the water to download data. Danelle is tough and her hard work is amazing!
