What is the water quality in the vernal pool? Does water quality affect the organisms in the vernal pool? In order to answer these questions, I prepared a procedure to collect data from one of the vernal pools. The data was to be collected in three categories. The first category was a description of the physical parameters in and around the pool. These included air and water temperatures, humidity, pool size, water depth, and water opacity.
The second category was a description of the water quality of the pool. Distilled water was used as a control for my water quality analysis. I also analyzed Houston tap water for reference. The two water sample locations were at the edge of the pool and at the deepest point of the pool.
The third data category was to observe and record the living organisms in and around the pool area. This category included a description of the microorganisms in the water. The organisms in the pool were sampled using an aquarium fish net, while the microorganisms were observed from my water samples, using a microscope. This data was collected every afternoon for the duration of the vernal pool. These observations helped answer my questions about life in a vernal pool.
On October 9, the opportunity to answer all my questions came. It rained heavily in the vicinity of Kinkaid's backyard. The next day, October 10, I went to the school backyard to find out whether a vernal pool had formed. The vernal pool area was flooded with water. The duration of this flooded vernal pool was 10 days.
It formed on October 10 and was completely dry by October During this time, the air temperature ranged from 65 degrees F. There was no additional rain during this period of time. The pool was 19 inches deep on the first day, and the depth increased by one inch on the second day as water was still draining into the pool from the surrounding area. However, the depth of the pool started to decline almost linearly after that, until it dried up.
The atmospheric conditions do not seem to have affected the rate of water loss due to evaporation and seepage. The vernal pool swelled to a maximum size of approximately 65 feet long by 25 feet wide, or 1, square feet total, and then shrank slowly until it was dried up on the 10th day Graph 1. I analyzed water samples taken from two locations in the pool, Location A and Location B see Map , for water quality. I found that the water quality did not fluctuate very much for the duration of the pool until the day before the pool dried up Graph 2. The water had a pH of 6, total alkalinity was 0 ppm parts per million , total hardness was 50 ppm, the iron content was 0 ppm, copper was 0.
On the day before the water dried up, the water qualities changed slightly. The total hardness increased to ppm, the total chlorine content increased to 0. The changes in water quality on the last day may be due to the increased concentration of dissolved minerals in the water due to evaporation. I also tested distilled water and found that there were no dissolved minerals in it at all. Houston tap water had a total hardness of ppm, and a free chlorine and total chlorine content of 1.
Compared to the standards of the U. Environmental Protection Agency, the water quality of the vernal pool is within the EPA recommendations, and I deduced that it was suitable for organisms to live in. However, I did not observe any microorganisms under the microscope in the water samples taken from the pool. I only observed rotting tissues from vegetation. My observations showed that the rotting process was taking place in the water, and explained why I had seen gas bubbling from the pool.
Every afternoon I went to the pool to look for organisms. I waded in the pool and tried to collect specimens using a fish net. During the first few days, I looked for frogs, salamanders, toads, and their eggs, as these are some of the animals that spend one or more stages of their life cycles in vernal pools. None were found. However, I observed a lot of mosquitoes flying above the surface of the pool on the first day, and a few larvae were found on the second day. As the days progressed, fewer mosquitoes were found, but more and more mosquito larvae were seen.
Later, the larvae metamorphosed to pupae. On the eighth and ninth day, mosquitoes were again seen flying above the surface of the pool.
