Presentation Abstract

Turbidity measures the relative clarity of water. The higher the turbidity would cause an increase in the temperature of the water and also could prevent photosynthesis from occurring. Conductivity measures the ability of an electrical current to pass through a sample of water. Higher conductivity means that there are more chemicals dissolved in the water. We conducted our experiments from Jan 31st, 2008 to Dec 17th, 2020. For our research, we used a nephelometer, a multimeter, and a glass beaker to store the water in. We conducted the experiments in Crabtree Swamp, which is a swamp that is in central Conway, South Carolina. We had an conductivity average of 195 μS/cm, and an average value for turbidity of 12.4 NTU.
