How do I use a Secchi Disk?

1. Tie disk to calibrated line, lower into shallow water.
2. Record depth at which black and white quadrants cannot be distinguished.
3. Lower further, then raise until you can determine white from black again
4. Obtain the index of transparency- how turbid the water is.
