Daily Objectives #8 (September
Review Mono Lake calculations.
Re-do Problem #8 from Chapter 1.
Complete the Thiessen Method calculations.
Lab exploration on water flow (below).
Three-minute review for Wednesday's exam.
the end of today's class, you
should be able to do the following:
v Construct a water
budget for a drainage basin, or another hydrological system.
v Use simple
lab apparati to
investigate the movement of water through open conduits and through
porous media: Bucket-to-Bucket Transfer, Capillary Action, Darcy
Discovery, Draining Work, Holey Water Bottle, and Infiltration
Observation. Be prepared to present your results.
here for an MSWord copy of the instructions.
GUIDELINES FOR TODAY'S LAB EXPLORATION:
articulate the general principles that describe the movement of water
factors that affect its movement.
make graphs to illustrate salient points. Graphs may be
quantitative (have numbers and units on the scales) or qualitative
(just show general trends with no numbers or units on the scales).
you want to use other materials, or you have an idea for improving the
experiment, please ask, as we have a whole lab at our disposal!
clean up after
you finish so that the next group will be able to work.
