Sand...

I've been measuring the specific gravity of sand. More on this later, but here are the preliminary results:

  1. Surprise, we're super interested in this because we're trying to figure out how to catch water/media samples at our Em4 model's drain and then convert things to dry sediment discharge rate! I think a semi-wet measurement would work if we could standardize it somehow.

  2. The question is, do you want to sample continuously, or just periodic "point" measurements? Would a column of water with plastic fragments falling through it register a higher SG using a hydrometer?

  3. I don't understand what you did.

  4. I'll be expanding the specific gravity of sand description tomorrow. I'll have some pictures.
