In early June, researchers and students from the Great Lakes Center spent a week and a half collecting samples from locations from Buffalo, NY, to Sandusky, OH. While only six intensive days were spent actually on the water, that represents the least of the work that it takes to complete a field study. Not included in those six days are all of the days spent planning and gathering supplies, the days sampling was delayed due to conditions on the lake, or the travel days. It also doesn't encompass the weeks it will take to analyze all of the samples that we collected.
Luckily, this isn't the very first time that we've done this trip. Last year, the Great Lakes Center went in June and August to the same six sites and collected most of the same parameters. This June, we had a few new faces but nearly everyone else involved had been on both trips in 2011.
