  • 10/15/2021 - Comments: This is an interesting question! But there are many pollutants that affect air quality. Is there a specific aspect of air quality you're interested in? For example, particulate matter is a type of air pollutant that often varies between forests and fields. I also agree with the other comments that time will be important! Trees and other plants can actually create particulate matter, but this process stops when the trees lose their leaves in the winter. So you may get a different answer depending on the season you measure in.

  • 10/08/2021 - Comments: Interesting question. I'm curious, how would you measure this? How would you make sure the different temperatures you measure are caused by the salt content and not from the fresh water and salt water being at different locations?

  • 10/08/2021 - Comments: This is an interesting question! Is there a specific type of marine life you're interested in? Animals? Plants? Bacteria?! And what do you mean by "most"? Do you want to know which beach has the highest number of different species? (The technical term would be "species richness", say for example you counted 5 species of starfish at Beach A.) Or do you want to know which one has the highest number of organisms? (We would call this "abundance", say for example you counted 50 starfish in total at Beach A.)

  • 10/05/2021 - Comments: To be more specific, do you think all parts of the pond would change by the same amount? Do you think the top cools down by more, less, or the same amount as the middle and the bottom? I also wonder if this pond gets covered in ice over the winter, since there's been some research published this year indicating that ice-covered lakes can be put into different categories based on how the temperature changes at different depths.
