LabBench Activity

Dissolved Oxygen and Aquatic Primary Productivity

by Theresa Knapp Holtzclaw


In an aquatic environment, oxygen must be dissolved in order to be available for use by organisms.

In this laboratory you will:

  1. Measure the amount of dissolved oxygen in water samples at different temperatures
  2. Analyze the effect of varying amounts of light on primary productivity
