Why does condensation forms on the outside of a cold water bottle?
What are some of the greatest challenges associated with our water supply? EnvironSci book p
What are some of the greatest challenges associated with our water supply? Access to Groundwater (Aquifers are recharged by Surface water) Transpiration (Cottonwood & Willow trees suck up and evaporate water) Competition for Use of water supply (agriculture, drinking water, septic system) Agriculture Nitrates & Phosphorous (from fertilizers) Urbanization (population growth in cities draws more groundwater)
Use a diagram to show the important role that Aquifers play in our water supply Where does the majority of YOUR drinking water come from?
Where is the majority of the freshwater on earth found?
Where is your drinking water?
Icebergs: Freshwater or Saltwater?
When WATER becomes as valuable as OIL, where would you live? And why?
Where are the biggest reservoirs of freshwater on Earth?
What causes precipitation to occur?
Explain what happened in the bottle. Demo 1: “Cloud in a bottle” demo (with bicycle tire pump) Demo 2: “Cloud in a bottle” demo (match cloud seeding)
What process is this?
What patterns can you identify? What factors do you think influences these precipitation patterns
Where would you place your Farm-ville?
Describe one method that may help us obtain more drinking water
Topography (terrain) Rain
Rain Shadow Effect Study the Hawaiian Island terrain maps with your group.Hawaiian Island terrain maps Then study the Avg Precipitation maps over the islands. Q. What patterns can you identify in regards to precipitation and terrain?
Rain Shadow Effect
What is humidity?
What patterns can you identify?
The Gulf Stream
What solutions do scientists think may solve our shortage of drinking water?
What process is this?
What is happening in this picture? Why would someone attempt to do this?
Describe one solution scientists think may solve our shortage of potable water
What are the problems associated with privatizing potable water?
What are some sustainable practices that you can adopt to save our potable water?
What are the issues that arise when we interfere with the movement of our groundwater?
What are the effects of El Nino?
El Nino Where does the name “El Nino” come from?
Normal Pacific Ocean Currents But every years…
El Nino Pacific Ocean Currents
Is this a normal year? …or an El Nino year
Indonesia Normal rain South America Normal rain
Indonesia Drought! South America INTENSE Rain!
Ocean Nutrient upwelling In terms of Nutrients, what does Ocean upwelling do off the coast of South America?
Ocean Nutrient upwelling How does an El Nino year affect Nutrient cycling in off the coast of South America?
Normal El Nino La Nina
How do we collect this data?
What does normal climate look like around the Pacific? Purple = precipitation Red = surface temperature Blue = nutrient Upwelling
What does climate look like during an El Nino year? Purple = precipitation Red = surface temperature Blue = nutrient Upwelling
How does El Nino affect precipitation patterns, ocean temperatures, and nutrient upwelling?
How does El Nino differ from La Nina?
What does climate look like during a La Nina year? Purple = precipitation Red = surface temperature Blue = nutrient Upwelling
How does a La Nina year affect farmers in South America and Indonesia?
