June 9, 2009: Streams
We started from Sous water reservoir. Josef, Rachel, Martha and Russell
took water samples from the boat. Cathy, Misae and Will marked trees on a
new spot and did forest inventory. Ryan, Petr and I took stream water
samples walking around the reservoir. We also measured flow rate,
checked water temperature and oxygen level, and if we saw fish in the
stream we also wrote it down. The weather was unexpectedly warm and
nice; it was a pleasure to follow forest paths and chat, and jump over a
wide stream once. I enjoyed this work day probably most of all.
On the way back we visited an old dam near Desna village. In the
beginning of the 20th century the dam failed and water flows and huge
stones caused damages and victims in the village. We also had some free
time in Jablonec city, but it started raining and we didn't walk around
Dinner brought tripe soup and potato pancakes with chicken and
This evening was my turn to do a presentation. I showed pictures from
Samara, and from Moscow and St. Petersburg also, and gave out some
souvenirs I brought. It was a nice evening. We sat up late talking and
then teaching each other card games we play back home.
