Designs for next round of experiments Aztec, New Mexico

New Experimental Designs

SR1

At this site containers will be placed in a compass rose position around the well.

The containers will be placed in rings radiating out from the well, in 50’ increments, one set of 8 containers at 50’, one at 100’ and one at 150’

Experiment will run for one week, in order to duplicate the results of the last test and one month. This will be accomplished my duplicating all of the containers.

This site will test a total of 48 containers; the containers will all be oriented vertically.

SR2

At this site containers will be placed in a compass rose position around the well.

The containers will be placed in rings radiating out from the well, in 50’ increments, one set of 8 containers at 50’.

Experiment will run for one week, in order to duplicate the results of the last test and one month.

This experiment will test different two different container types, horizontal and vertical.

Each point on the compass rose will have four containers. One vertical, one week, one vertical one month, one horizontal one week, and one horizontal one month.

The site will need 32 containers.

SUL

This site will test a total of 48 containers; the containers will all be oriented vertically.

For the next round of experiments we will need 128 containers

Very exciting, the work you're doing. On a suggestion by Chris F, I posted a brief description of what you're doing at the Pioneer Valley open science group's site since they are very interested in using Arduinos, and we have this prototype electronic H2S sensor. I'm hoping they'd be interested in working on an electronic prototype in parallel, so we could test various strategies and see if the data correlates:

Although really, testing with an off-the-shelf technique would give a better sense of if you're really detecting H2S, since this prototype electronic sensor is also not yet credible.
