The Effect Of Various Seasons On The PH And Temperature In The Cove River. Conclusions Abstract The Cove River is a freshwater body run-off that consists of many plant and animal life. There are many types of animals that depend on the Cove River for survival. The purpose of this experiment is to investigate the effect of various seasons on the PH and temperature in the Cove River. The seasons tested are fall, winter, spring, and summer. This experiment is has been tested by sampling water over various seasons throughout an extended time period. The independent variables are the various seasons. The dependent variable is the score of the temperature and the PH. The hypothesis of this experiment is if the plants are surrounded by low temperatures and a normal PH, then the growth of the plants will decrease, because low temperatures and a normal PH will not create the environment for the plants to grow. The data collected will help determine how the seasons affect the PH and temperature and how that impacts the re-growth of plants in the Cove River. This data was obtained using GLOBE PROTOCOLS. The purpose of this experiment is to help investigate the impact of various seasons on the PH and temperature of water in the Cove River. The data collected in this experiment will help researchers determine the best method to use in re-growing the plants and bringing back the wildlife at the Cove River. The analysis of the temperature and PH in various seasons has yield to the following conclusions: The hypothesis, if the plants are surrounded by low temperatures and a normal PH, then the growth of the plants will decrease, because Data Table The Effect Of Various Seasons On The PH And low temperatures and a normal PH will not create the environment for Temperature In The Cove River. the plants to grow, was proven valid by the data.
