|Water: Here, There, Everywhere|
This module provides three activities that explore the potential impact of climate variability and change on Earth's most abundant resource, water. Although each activity is designed to tap specific skills and knowledge to yield scientific results, the broader intent is to stimulate thought about the long-term impacts of a warmer planet. Through participation in these activities, students will observe pan evaporation, describe how evaporation rate relates to air temperature and relative humidity, explain how water vapor can affect global temperatures, analyze regional atmospheric variations for various years across the United States, interpret the effect of fresh water intrusion on a saltwater estuary environment, develop sampling protocols that allow students to obtain data that will help relate their knowledge to a global scheme, and share data to achieve a global perspective. This module is one of twelve of an overall series entitled The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change that was developed to examine the potential impacts of climate variability and change.
