Featured in PASCO’s College Environmental Science Instructor Guide
College Instructor edition with experiments covering introductory and general environmental science topics.
Use My World GIS and student-collected data from the GLOBE project to discern patterns of acidic pH measurements, particularly in cities in the United States.
**Requires My World GIS License.
In this activity students use student-collected data from the GLOBE project to discern patterns of acidic pH measurements, particularly in the United States. They also:
- Explore the relationship of population centers to acidic water bodies.
- Explore the relationship of industrial polluters to acidic water bodies.
- Consider the effect of wind carrying acid deposition to remote areas.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Using My World GIS (global information system) software to examine an international database of pH measurements taken and reported in a student GIS GLOBE project.
- Correlating areas with low pH measurements with population and industrial centers.
- Looking for patterns that give clues as to the sources of acid in the atmosphere.
The Associated Bundle:
Contains the probeware needed to perform all 26 experiments in the College Environmental Science instructor guide.
