View Resource Floodplains in the Field (with GIS)

In this exercise from SERC's Starting Point, students measure a topographic and geologic cross-section across a floodplain by simple surveying and auguring techniques. This example demonstrates how basic GIS elements can enhance learning by adding spatial context and introducing mapping techniques. GIS elements encourage students to consider the spatial context of field observations, introduce...

View Resource Stream Gages and GIS

This exercise from SERC's Starting Point utilizes the national network of stream gage data provided by the USGS Water Resources Division as an online Geographic Information System (GIS). Students use real-time stream flow data to interpret recent regional-scale climate events based on current stream flow data, monitor changes in time, and consider additional interpretations that could be derived...
