Good water quality is critical to the health of coral reefs and all the habitats in the ocean. We’re testing for some general health parameters, like temperature, salinity, pH, alkalinity, hardness, water clarity and depth. These give us an idea what conditions are like, and teach us that every region is different, through natural and unnatural conditions. For example, salinity and temperature affect water density! These tests, along with your observations on what you see, smell and hear, help give context to your environment and encourages participants to actually look around!

Each kit contains…

Thermometer (air temperature, water temperature)
Secchi disc (water clarity or depth)
Test strips  (pH, alkalinity, nitrate, nitrite)
Sample container
Ocean Explorer field notepad
3 Whirl pak bags
Field guide
4 stickers and 3 badges
Reacher stick

*Refractometer: the equipment is easy to maintain and calibrate. If you would prefer, you can swap for a salinity meter, please contact us. Readings for the meter are more precise. However, it will need regular calibrating, maintenance, and possible replacement due to damage from salt water.
