> River Sampling Frequency

Hi Tom,

Collecting all the samples from the river sounds like a big undertaking. How often is that done? Quarterly, monthly? And how long does it take to analyze 500 water samples?

I heard some good news on the global warming front last evening on NPR. The insurance industry is putting a cost to it. They estimated that weather related claims caused by the effects of global warming (increased occurance of hurricanes, etc.) will increase by 60 percent. Unfortunately, I didn't catch exact numbers past that, so I can't say if it'll increase 60 percent over last year or the past 5 years.* Still, since it seems that change is often influenced by money, assigning a dollar amount to the effects of global warming may be a step in the right direction to influence more proactive planning.


* I failed to catch the details b/c I was painting the kitchen...green, not orange, although I'm sure Heidi's color choice is beautiful. : )

Yes, it is a large number of samples. As I remember it I think they said they could analyze one sample every minute so it would take a while to analyze all of them. I believe that they were going to analyze the samples and then they were going to test some different things during the course of the week. I will try to ask Mike Gooseff and see what he says.
