Temperature changes in surface water may affect the solubility of substances and affect ecosystems by increasing plant growth, which in turn, decreases the amount of dissolved oxygen available for animals. In this activity, students measure and compare the temperature of water in various zones of a river, stream, pond, or lake. A materials list, instructions, discussion questions, and a printable ...

In this activity, students explore the influences of different parameters on the environmental quality of a river system. They will run a computer model of a river system, interpret graphs, and adjust model parameters such as wind speed, sewage load, and other variables to determine their effects on water quality. For teachers, there are additional background materials, teaching tips, evaluation methods, ... Full description.

In this activity, students play the roles of investigators looking for the source of fuel that is contaminating wells in a fictional town. They will use a topographic map and information about groundwater flow and well locations to determine the source of the pollution. Questions help students understand how groundwater flows and how a contamination plume spreads over time. In an extension to the ... Full description.

This site describes how snow and ice runoff become surface water and emphasizes how runoff from snowmelt is a major component of the global movement of water. A hydrograph from the U.S. Geological Survey shows a four-year time series of streamflow and illustrates how runoff from snowmelt affects the daily mean values, particularly at certain times of the year.
