from community to community and throughout the world. Some of these are
natural differences caused by nature and some a induced by human. The
research team will compare the water quality results against local surrounding
counties, statewide, countrywide and International water quality standards.
The team will utilize Math Lab Seven, Microsoft Excel, Mathematica which
have statistical software capabilities within these packages to display
there findings. In order to illustrate these differences the 2007 Topics
in Computer Science course Hydrology Research team will compare water
samples from the Pasquotank River located in Elizabeth City North Carolina,
Lake Cavalier which is located in Portsmouth Virginia, Playa De Mar Beach
Spain, Chesapeake Bay Virginia and sample of their house tapwater. The
