Weather and Climate Change
Read Lab 5: Weather and Climate Change. This lab will allow you to explore the water cycle through the creation of an ecosystem model. Additionally, you will observe how water moves throughout the environment and is affected by weather patterns. Then, utilize this information and your eScience lab kit to complete Experiments 1and 2 on the Lab 5 Reporting Form. Make sure that all of the following items are completed before submission:
a. Read through intro material and record your hypothesis for ï¿½Experiment 1: Modeling the Water Cycleï¿½ on the Lab 5 Reporting Form.
b. Perform ï¿½Experiment 1: Modeling the Water Cycleï¿½ using your eScience lab manual and kit. Answer post lab questions 1 through 4 on the Lab 5 Reporting Form.
c. Record your hypothesis for ï¿½Experiment 2: Assessing Infiltrationï¿½ on the Lab 5 Reporting Form.
d. Complete ï¿½Experiment 2: Assessing Infiltrationï¿½ using your eScience lab manual and kit. Answer post lab questions 1 through 5 on the Lab 5 Reporting Form.
All post lab questions for ï¿½Lab 5: Weather and Climate Changeï¿½ should be completed on the Lab 5 Reporting Form. Save your completed Lab 5 Reporting Form as a Word document. The document must be formatted according to APA style, including a title page and references page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course. Submit the document via the Assignment Basket in your online course.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric (available for download in your online course) before beginning the lab and note the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment. (Expected time on task for this assignment is 8 hours. This includes time for research, critical thinking, completing both experiments, completing all tables, answering questions, and reflection on the topic.)
