What the numbers have to say...!!!


Hey Manatees… here is the data from our afternoon research at Rice Bay today. How does it compare to your data table? When you look at this data table, the numbers show you the results of our work and should “paint a picture.” From this information you should be able to create part of a conclusion. What is the health of the bay? What does it look like underwater? How much life/biota is there? What are the percentages?

How do you think the bay is doing? (This would make a great entry into your field notebook… hint, hint)

What this data does not tell you is what Rice Bay was like before so that you can make a prediction what Rice Bay may be like in the future.
If (IV) ,then (DV) .


We do have data collected at the very same sites since 1992 that help scientists and marine ecologists here reach those conclusions. You will get to see that data AND pictures to check your conclusion in an upcoming blog. We have very limited bandwidth.

Do you have any questions? What would you like to know about San Salvador or any of our dive and exploration sites? Now would be a good time to submit them to “comments.”

I think that the hardest expirement to do would be to find the percentage of bleached coral. This is because there is alot of coral and its hard to see if the coral is bleached or not. Like if the bleaching is taking place on the bottom of the coral. How would you tell with out toucing and kill the coral.

I think the hardest experiment to find the percentage of the bleached coral because you would have to do a lot of observing and make many data tables.

We think the hardest thing to measure would be the percetange of bleached coral because finding the percent would require you to have to find out how many of the coral is bleached and how many coral there is in all and then math and we think that would be HARD!

Are there any other fish that shouldn't be there (invasive)? Besides the lion fish.
