Our group aims to reveal the effects of urban and agricultural land use on metabolic productivities of rivers through statistical manipulation and visualization. During this summer, we classified sites and conducted covariate analyses based on patterns of metabolism, and produced reproducible code that can be used by researchers with similar research goals. We hope that our findings would suggest hypotheses of how disruption is caused by land development, and what factors should land planners avoid introducing.
