Scientific research was conducted at Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park,Wyoming to establish a baseline of the impact that human beings have on both the aquatic and terrestrial environment. Many field techniques and scientific equipment were used to gather data. These included: a global positioning receiver, a soil compaction tester, a digital measuring wheel, a quadrat, pH kits for soil and water, a LaMotte soil kit, and a freshwater Master Test Kit. The findings from this study will be discussed and suggestions will be offered for possible future studies to be conducted at Jenny Lake.
