The AA. investigate how precipitation, discharge, sediment, and pathogens are related in the Little River. The goals are to : 1) determine the degree of correlation between precipitation, turbidity, stream discharge, and pathogen (total coliform and E. coli) concentrations; 2) identify and describe seasonal patterns that may exist for both pathogens and turbidity; and 3) develop a simple statistical model that predicts pathogen concentration from rainfall, stream discharge, and turbidity measurements.
