We had a full house at the Great Lakes Research Center last night to celebrate the GRACE interns, who presented their data collection and analysis about the streets, parks, buildings, and social activity that influence our daily lives in the Keweenaw. We are so proud of their smart questions and polished presentations! Take a look yourself!

"People In The Active Community" it would be of interest to note what day of the week the study was taken and what were the weather conditions. Did the study cover more than one day and/or time of day?

Thank you for your comments on the student's work. We will let the students' respond to your specific questions on their analysis. However, regarding the day of week and weather conditions- all of the blocks we mapped were mapped 11 times on different days of the week, time of day, and weather conditions (though generally all dry and sunny). This was done to remove the effects of day/time/weather on the study.

To Sam Raber - Wow - a study on cigarette butts - awesome!

Thank you for the positive feedback. Our research showed that the highest concentrations of cigarette butts tended to be on the two main streets where the most bars were located. I didn't really think to look for that correlation but it makes sense. I'm glad to hear that Canada has such a proactive approach to second hand smoke...I think we're getting better in the US but still have a ways to go.
