F.R.E.S.H. Field Trip at Aman Park

FRESH - Field Research in Earth Science Happenings


Prof. Riemersma is teaching us how to use the flow meter and how to write it down in our notebook.

We are seeing how to use the flow meter.

We are using the flow meter to calculate the velocity of the water.

We stop to take notes at a bridge. Prof. R is telling us about the well.

We are relaxing on gravel at a sand and gravel company in Grand Rapids.


ok, yeahhhhh?

We measured the porosity of gravel and sand mixed together. We determined that gravel had higher porosity (61.6%) than the sand and gravel.(30.8%)
