ENSS141 Stetson University Soil Water Nutrients and Stormwater Report last week I had a bad experience with a tutor here at study pool that resulted on me having bad grade on the report.I’ll attach the report with my doctor notes and I want someone to edit it as required. Running head: SOIL, WATER, NUTRIENT, AND STORMWATER REPORT

SOIL, WATER, NUTRIENT, AND STORMWATER REPORT
I-
Introduction
Differences in the natural diversity of water and soil present in the actual ecosystems have
grown to be a global mystery. Therefore, closer consideration has been paid to specific properties
concerning the nutrients in water and soil. Natural variation is significantly extended and is
applied to determine the quality and variability among existing conditions from all causes,
including water infiltration and the environmental systems of the site. This determination of
water and soil nutrients incorporates three fundamental components of difference. The main
elements are genetic, species, and ecosystem diversity. However, also this generally allowed
interpretation misses considering the role of environmental processes, such as spontaneous
changes and nutrient series that are essential to determining nutrients in the water and soil. The
intricacy of recognition and definition of the data indicates the overall state of the water, soil, and
nutrients in the sampled sites. The characterization helps us identify its significant elements at
different levels of structure, which assist in explaining the composition, structure, and retention
capacity of the soil, water, and nutrients (Warrick, 2001).
This introduction is composed of sentences that do not make any sense, nor do they convey an
understanding of the study we conducted. In addition, many of the key components of an
introduction are not present including a brief description of our study and hypotheses for our
study.

Methods
Describe the campus as the field site.
SOIL, WATER, NUTRIENT, AND STORMWATER REPORT
We first used the Rational Method to determine the land area (Stetson university campus)
using the dot grids. Include the formula with an explanation of each factor. We separated the
land into different categories, pavements, roofs, lawn and sand. Each dot represents 0.06
acres. Therefore, to determine the acreage of a land area, we multiplied the number of dots
by 0.06; the outcome was the land area in acres which is 4.62 for the roofs. 4.98 for
pavements. 76.8 for lawns and sand. (These are results; move them to the Results section.)
Secondly, we measured the infiltrations rates on campus in stormwater infiltration basins.
We firstly measured the radius of the tube and calculated the cross-sectional area (A = 3.14*r2)
thus, A = 122.4 cm2. We inserted the tube about 3 cm into the soil and the poured 250ml of water
into the tube and we allowed it to completely infiltrate. And then we calculated the soil basic
properties such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium using soil auger, Munsell color chart,
nutrient measurement kits. We augered a hole into the soil and described soil properties for the
top 10cm of the core. Also, we measured soil nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium using the
instructions in the soil test kits.
Describe statistical tests—t-tests and linear regressions.
III- Results
Reports on soil, water and nutrient concentration briefly reviews the geological history of the
area coupled with a reconnaissance report of the basins and its surroundings. The details of
sampling will indicate different characteristics depending on the location of each site. The report
gives a rough indication of the soils, water and nutrients encountered at each level of the
investigation. The water conditions are also noted which allow for estimating future seepage into
SOIL, WATER, NUTRIENT, AND STORMWATER REPORT
foundations, uplift pressures on foundations and the need for adequate drainage. The report will
give a classification of all the various types of soil, water and nutrient conditions encountered
along with their strengths as determined in the laboratory or on site (Hole & Campbell, 1985).

This should be a scatterplot showing the relationship between infiltration rate on the x-axis
and potassium concentration on the y-axis. The scatterplot should have a trendline applied and an
associated R2 value that indicates the strength of the relationship.

Discussion
A design engineer needs to know the condition of the soil, water and nutrients of the site and
its capacity to support the structure safely. (We are not designing any structures, and this not a
geotechnical report for a construction project.) Of main importance to us will be the type of soil
depending on location and the nutrients present. The research analyzes the sites soil and water
composition according to texture, moisture, infiltration and organic components. The results
represented in the pie charts (there are no pie charts) are the nutrient concentration at the
different sites. This discussion does not address the study that we did.
