It should include a presentation of pertinent results, using figures and tables as appropriate, and a discussion of the meaning and relevance of the results. The discussion is your opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the laboratory technique, your results, and the application of the method in the field of environmental engineering.
The objective(s) of the laboratory should be reiterated and specific conclusions should be listed using bullet points.
The questions from the laboratory handout should be included in a numbered list. Complete, concise answers to the questions should be provided.
Include appropriate citations for all material referenced in the report.
