Water Quality B/C

-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Could anybody tell me if prior experience from Dp (fresh waters) would help for this event?

I guess it kinda helps with lakes maybe but it was more about formations and not the quality of the water in DP. But when I did them together they were nice to study because they complimented each other.

water quality has a bit more emphasis on pollution

Generally I'd say that Dynamic covers maybe 35% of the concepts at the most. Awesome aquifers was more useful because yes, pollution was a major topic. Also water quality includes organisms like indicator species (if that's what they're called, I may be wrong).

Do you mean macroinvertebrates? There are a lot of those... So. Much. To Memorize.

I've never seen anything besides a picture identification for the macroinvertebrates yet.
