On Tuesday, we reviewed “dissolved oxygen” with Sherril. We discussed how it is added to and removed from a system. We also talked about what influences and affects dissolved oxygen levels. Sherril gave a small introduction to “experimental design”. We formulated a simple hypothesis to test how dissolved oxygen differs between inside an algal canopy and directly outside of an algal canopy.
Later, we divided into groups and went out into the pond to do some field work on algal cover for Sherril’s research.
First, we set up our “Algal Cover” Kit.
Then, we went out to collect data and samples.

On Saturday, Koa gave a brief intro to dissolved oxygen for the interns and the Ocean Awareness Training (OAT) visitors.

Later, we collected samples of dissolved oxygen through field work to test our hypothesis and performed titration to collect dissolved oxygen data.

All in all, it was a fun week filled with experiments and collaborating in an effort to design our own experiment. It was great and fun meeting new people (OAT) and being able to introduce them to a little science. (:

Aloha e nā poʻe o ka loko iʻa o Heʻeia
Poʻalua ma ka lā ʻiwakāluakūmākahi o Pepeluali
Ma kēia lā, ua pau mākou i ka mea kānana no nā mea hōʻikeʻike ʻuʻuku haku no Megsie. i kēlā lā i makani ai. ua waʻu ka hapanui o ko mākou hui i nā limu manauea mai nā mea hōʻikeʻike ʻuʻuku mai ka pule aku nei. ʻai mākou i nā ʻai māmā me mākou a ua walaʻau pū mākou e pili ana i ko mākou mau lā a me nā meaʻai apau. ʻO ka lā hope o Megsie ma mua o kona haʻalele ʻana ma ka moku nui no ka ʻimi i ke kumu. Ua ʻimi mākou i nā mea hōʻikeʻike ʻuʻuku no nā holoholona liʻiliʻi loa. ua ʻimi kākou i nā mea e like me ka dorvillidae, copapoda, serilladae, a me ka syllidae. a laila, ma hope o ko mākou ʻimi ʻana i nā ʻohe nānā, komo mākou i nā holoholona i nā ʻohe heʻa kahi me nā holoholona e like me kēlā holoholona.
E hana pū nei ʻO Cami a ʻO Danielle me ka mea
ma ka ʻaoʻao hema, i nā ʻohe heʻa me nā holoholona mai nā mea hōʻikeʻike ʻuʻuku
ma ka ʻao ʻao ʻakau, e ʻakaʻaka ʻO megan i kona hana ʻana me ka ʻohe nānā me Daniel. ua ʻimi ʻO Daniel i ko Megan kākau ʻana ma ka pepa na mea likeʻole i pili i ke kumu hana.
ma ka ʻaoʻao hema, i ka ʻohe mai ke kahua hoʻokahi haneli a me ʻeono i ka mea hōʻikeʻike ʻuʻuku hoʻokahi ma hope o ka kānana ʻana me ka ʻelima haneli microns.
ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻakau, ʻO ka hoʻokahi ʻohe no ka holoholona dorvillidae ma hope o koʻu ʻimi ʻana mai ka ʻohe nānā
ʻO nā ʻohe heʻa kēia.
Ma ka poʻaono i ka lā ʻiwakāluakūmālima o Pepeluali
Ma kēia lā, ʻO ka lā wahi noho like o ka poʻe kēlā no ka Paepae o Heʻeia. ʻO ka lā mua no mākou i ka lā wahi noho like o ka poʻe kēia. O ka mea mua, ua hui mākou i ka hui ma ka honua ma mua o ka loko iʻa. A laila, hoʻolauna mākou e pili ana ko mākou inoa a me e pili ana ka noho mākou i hea. ua hele mākou ma ke kaʻapuni o ka loko iʻa no ka poʻe ua hele ʻole. a laila, ua hele mākou ma ka paia i ka pani o ka loko iʻa, ua holo wāwae mākou i ka wāhi o ka paia a ua neʻe i na koʻa i ka ʻelua wahi ma hope o ka wahi o nā koʻa. ua kūkulu i ka paia no ka mea wahī. Ma hope o kēia, ua hiki mai ʻO Anakē Donnie e walaʻau me mākou e pili ana i ka moʻolelo o ka loko iʻa o Heʻeia. Hoihoi loa kēlā mea walaʻau a ua hauʻoli loa mākou e pili ana i ko Anakē Donnie hiki mai ʻana.
ʻO ka manawa moʻolelo me Anakē Donnie. a Hoʻolohe ʻO Cami iā Anakē Donnie i kona moʻolelo hoihoi loa.
E walaʻau ana ʻO Anakē Donnie.
ʻO ko Koa a me Megan heluhelu ʻana i ka puke moʻolelo o Kāneʻohe i nā kēia mau kiʻi.
ʻO ka kiʻi kēia o ka loko iʻa o Heʻeia ma mua o kēia mau lā i ka wā kahiko. Nani loa kēiā kiʻi.
