Re: Water Quality B/C

I'm new to the event and looked through several tests, and it seems like a wider variety of info is covered than what I could fit on a page front and back. And for the species identification,...

Can you elaborate on this? Not sure what you mean and who you're talking to, sorry.

Re: Forensics C

Anyone have a link to a good dichotomous key to use for powders?
I use a chart, not sure if there are any physical dichotomous keys but the intellectual bois probably have the sequence of testing memorized. I suggest that you start with a flame test and go from there.
