Update from Hydrostation 55

Hey Sed Heads, 

This is Megan writing (first blog post woohoo!). As Mae Kate mentioned, we are looking at data from hydrostation 55 on the Mekong river (our watershed is on the Tibetan plateau). We are analyzing discharge and sediment data from the hydrostation to determine how these factors change over time; eventually, we can relate this information to changes in land use due to policies allowing intensive industrialization. So far we have mostly done a lot of number crunching, but we are getting close to being able to see some results. We should have some cool graphs to share soon. 

Stay tuned!
