    Hello Members of The Science Forum,
    I am currently in a highschool research program and i am in dire need of help! Currently we are discussing plans for research in our junior year and i plan on working with zooplankton in the lab and seeing what effects light pollution have on diel vertical migration...now, my only problem is- i can't figure out how to mimic vertical migration in the lab! We have 2 tanks (1 of them salt water) that are relatively large, and i have skimmed through a countless number of articles trying to find some useful information.
    P.S: There is absolutely no way we will get access to a water body for this research
    Thanks!

    Take samples at different heights..

    Put plexiglass plates with holes in them in the tank. One hole per plate. Each on a different height. You can figure it out from there..


    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
