Thermal & Chemical Pollution

Using yeast to represent oxygen consuming microorganisms or animals, the effect of temperature on biological oxygen demand and dissolved oxygen in water is explored, relating this to the metabolism of an organism. Further activities investigate chemical pollution by direct poisons (lead irons) and indirect (phosphate ions) that disrupt what lives in water by favoring the growth of one type of organism.
