The Great North American Secchi Dip-In is a demonstration of the potential of volunteer monitors to gather environmentally important information on our lakes, rivers and estuaries. To participate this year, visit http://dipin.kent.edu/
The concept of the Dip-In is simple: individuals in volunteer monitoring programs take a Secchi disk measurement on one day in a period surrounding Canada Day and July Fourth. Individuals may be monitoring lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, rivers, or streams. These Secchi transparency values are used to assess the transparency of volunteer-monitored lakes in the United States and Canada.
