Last day at GNBZ

Today was our final day in the bog. We took one last core with some interesting results. We also took some water chemistry data to confirm our findings and results to this point. This area (site 5) was much closer to the human laid pipeline on the SE end of the bog near the end of the trail we had been using all summer to enter this area. The clay and silt layers found in this core are much more pronounced and featured than in any core we have taken to date from our site. Although, our analysis on this one will be limited due to time, the freshness of what we saw will help paint a more intricate picture of the past environment of the area.
