Instructor: Dr. Chris Gordon
Project: Wetland Management
This project will entail isolating various reed beds around the Accra area in order to examine the efficiency of their use in eliminating or reducing problems of pollution. After locating sights for study, the student will work with Dr. Chris Gordon in building the bed and introducing pollution at one end, observing the tendencies of the flow of trash. Concurrently, the student will take the dimensions of the reed bed into consideration, the location, the contents, and several other external factors, in order to determine how effective the process is. The student will attempt to find ways to ensure the stripping of all excess pollutants and to maintain a self-generating system.
Among several other questions, the following could be explored:
How feasible is extensive water sanitation and treatment in Ghana?
