Drizzly day, playgrounds, and the fire department

All three of our lab groups were able to finish their fieldwork today. The fire department came to flood the rain garden for us, and we were able to practice measuring overflow from a V-notch weir.

The second part of our fieldwork for this lab was to flood the rain garden and measure the overflow discharge. However, the last time NTNU did this experiment, it took 24 hours to fill the pond. So this time, the fire department came to provide us with some water.

We were all able to practice measuring overflow from a V-notch weir (and a square-notch weir as well!).

We also found a great little playground near the rain garden.

Trondheim is beginning to be a comfortable place for most of us now. We have been taking public transportation most everywhere, and no one has gotten lost yet.

A few of the graduate students have been giving us some help with our Norwegian pronunciation, so we should have some fun phrases to share soon!
