Water Bodies Identification and Measurement Field Tools. This is a task of finding if there is a water source nearby the ground level and its distribution of the water. Wetland delineation is conducted to meet legal requirement restricting occupation of people over water bodies. Some water bodies are seasonal there will only be visible during certain weather periods. Hence it is important for land buyers to research the water level of a land before acquisition, as they will not be allowed to develop properties if it is a water body. Equipment used in wetland delineation is. Their maps which have been developed showing area that in the past have water bodies. This will be important is knowing the exact areas to start the field study.
5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Cameras
In addition to the map, the researcher also will need GPS equipment. The purpose is to assist the researcher to know the area directions. Mud boots. The personnel performing the wetland determination exercise will need to wear protective mud boots. The boots keep the feet safe.

Tools for digging such as shovels and soil knives. Wetland delineation requires the researchers to get the underground soil which is acquired by digging. Tools for taking photos that can work in water. There may need to take pictures for the use in research. Giving the area has water bodies it will be essential to have camera is not affected by water. The exercise will take time, need of a camera with the capability of working for the long period required. Also, it is good to carry a normal designed camera for taking general field picture. Specification required is camera ability to focus the light well and produce good pictures. Pictures for different types of soils. This a chart specifically designed to compare the various colors of soils, with each color have notes on the conditions of the area. This usually involves digging the underneath soil and studying the characteristics with assistance of the soil chart. Equipment for measuring length and width of the area. After establishing there is a water body in the area, the next step will involve determining the size of the water body. It entails taking lengths and widths and trying to approximate the total area occupied by the water body. For this exercise, the researcher will require measurement tools. In addition the exercise develops the end areas of the wetland. Notes taking is also an important exercise of any research. Thus it is vital to acquire stationery necessary for the field task. This will be used to record the findings of their exercise. The water body identification and area measurement is an essential exercise which should be undertaken after lapse of several years for example ten years. Changes in climate condition have shrink some water bodies while expanding others.
