Below are some resources for doing work with limnology (the study of inland waters) /oceanography, aquatic ecology and just plain water! If you have any files that you would like me to post here, send 'em to me!
I banged on these tools for my thesis work and I'd hate to see all of this hard work go to waste. If you can use these tools, they are free for the taking. If you used them or learned something from them, please shoot me a note!
Please note, unless otherwise stated these are Windows files. If you are clever, you might find ways to make them cross platform though. If your browser starts to read the files, shift-click on them to save to files.
Update: As part of a hobby, I am contemplating creating a virtual aquatic ecology/physical limnology lab planner on this website. This will be a database where lesson plans and teaching materials are stored, queried and submitted. Maybe this resource would be useful for people presenting these classes, especially TAs. If you're interested, lemme know and I'll get off my fanny and build it sooner than later. Until then, here are some useful links:
- Example of a data entry website using PHP and probably some open source DB
- An excellent online lab manual
- My online lab guidelines
- Another online syllabus with guideline for each lab. The links are not underlined.
- Another syllabus. No links
- UC-Davis online PDF lab manual
A table of links with useful summaries of threads from various newgroups and listservs relating to the following topics:
- Geographical information science
- Linux and *NIX
