Students use an online quarantine estimator to determine how long zebra mussels can survive out of water. By varying the settings, such as location in country and month of the year, students can observe how the time needed to dry a boat is related to the time of year and the local climate (humidity and temperature). This curriculum on invasive zebra and quagga mussels is part of the Menace to the West on Oregon Sea Grant's website.
