Summary:
Students learn about stream ecology on the island of Hawaii using data available through USGS and University of Hawaii websites and develop an understanding for potential stream changes due to predicted climate change.

Description

ECOLOGICAL CONTENT

Current stream dynamics, ecology, and waterflow are used to understand the variability of Hawaii Island stream dynamics and how climate affects these phenomena.

WHAT STUDENTS DO

  • Explore maps of streams on Hawaii Island (Hawaii County)
  • Discuss how topography and rainfall affect stream dynamics
  • Analyze country stream flow data sets from the USGS water data website for Hawaii County
  • Relate water stream flow with precipitation patterns
  • Predict how stream flow will change based on future climate models
