About This Simulation
In the Marine Biology Lab you’ve found that the low oxygen in the water was causing the suffocation of the fish. Looking for more data you’ll analyze the water sample using the microscope. In this way you can study the biological matter in the water. Have the algae in the water something to do with the low oxygen levels?
You will learn about the nitrogen cycle and how human activity can influence it. You will analyze nitrogen content in the water sample using spectrophotometry. An interactive map will help you to determine the source of excessive nitrogen run-off that caused the harmful algal bloom. Will you be able to prevent the massive fish kill?
