A science teacher and students at Waterford Public High School are currently participating in a COSEE-TEK run citizen science project to monitor water-born pesticides and marine invertebrate communities at Mago Point in the Niantic Bay area. The buoy is equipped with an Onset HOBO temperature and light sensor, settling plates to measure seasonal recruitment of marine invertebrates, and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) sensors to passively sample organic contaminants. The students have been collecting data from this buoy since November 2011 and posting their findings here on the COSEE-TEK website.
