Many exciting things are happening with the Medomak Project this summer. Gabrielle Hillyer a graduate student from University of Maine is deploying drifters in order to map tidal currents in the Medomak. These drifters will measure temperature, salinity, light intensity, pH and Dissolved Organic Carbon. This research will help better explain the currents of the Medomak and hopefully help us understand how any potential bacteria travels. This has a direct impact on not only the health of the river but those men and women who make their living off of the Medomak, and those who live and play on the Medomak. In order to track the currents and collect data Gabrielle will be releasing drifters, which float with tidal currents. These floaters can be monitored remotely, and map out how long it takes for them to leave an area. The drifters are pictures below, if you come across them please do not touch them (click image to enlarge).

The current closure time of 9 days is based on the length of time it takes for clams to filter out bacteria, based on the findings from this data Gabrielle hopes to prove that it may be shorter or longer in certain areas because of the impact of the tides.
