Labs & Simulations
These are some of the lab activities & simulations that we do in Environmental Science.
Citizen's Qualitative Habitat Evaluation Index (CQHEI) – simple measurement of streams for fish habitats
Invertebrate Community Index (ICI) – measurement of quality of streams via benthic macroinvertebrate populations
Ohio Rapid Assessment Method for Wetlands (ORAM) – measurement of wetland quality and characteristics
Primary Headwater Habitat (PHWH) – simple measurement of small headwater streams using Headwater Habitat Evaluation Index (HHEI)
Qualitative Habitat Evaluation Index (QHEI) – more complex measurement of streams for fish habitats
Water Quality Index (WQI) – chemical measurements of water in streams
