This past month we have continued collecting data for our water temperature study in the Cheticamp River and Cheticamp reservoir. This study is being done with our partners at Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The purpose of this study is to record temperature fluctuations in the river and reservoir and determine the impact of these fluctuations on aquatic species. Below are some photos of the summer crew installing the temperature probes at various locations. The probes are installed at different depths (surface vs. bottom) and in different sections of the river (riffles, pools, runs). The probes will be collected in September.
