GLOBE 2003 Hydrology Chapter

GLOBE Program Office

As part of the GLOBE program's 2003 Teacher's Guide, this site provides information and activities related to understanding hydrology. Sections featuring protocols and activities cover collecting water samples, conducting tests such as dissolved oxygen, conductivity and salinity, modeling a local watershed, comparing local water to global data, modeling water balance and looking at how water chemistry affects life. Instuctors will also find information on learning goals and student assessment.
