Laboratory Assignment: Weather and Climate Change (100 points)

         The Lab Kit required for the course contains a Lab entitled “Weather and Climate Changes” that you can do at       home.   In the Lab Kit you should have a CD which contains the Lab Manual and Supplemental Resources. It is best   to print out the complete lab so you can easily follow the directions as described and record your data.

    Watch the following movie for an introduction to this week’s Lab exercise.

         {Module 6 Lab Weather and Climate Changes} *Found on the Week 6 Assignments page.

         After you have completed the Lab, respond to each of the 8 questions found on the Week 6 Assignments page.

Planet Earth Part One Melting Arctic After you have completed the Lab, respond to each of the 8 questions below.

The 4 major greenhouse gases that are accumulating and causing climate change are ___________? Experiment 1: Modeling the Water Cycle Which water cycle processes are represented in this model and by what components?

  Experiment 1: Modeling the Water Cycle Which processes are not represented?
How could the model be altered to include these processes?

  Experiment 1: Modeling the Water Cycle How would the "weather" be affected if the water was at a decreased temperature? What about an increased temperature? How could you model these changes in this system?

Experiment 2: Assessing Infiltration What formed on the inside of the bags? What parts of the water cycle are represented in this experiment?

Experiment 2: Assessing Infiltration What conditions showed the greatest change? What force contributed to this change?

Experiment 2: Assessing Infiltration How would increasing the proportion of land (sand) to water affect the amount of water vapor released?

  Experiment 2: Assessing Infiltration How would drought conditions impact infiltration and condensation
from the ground?

  Your responses should total 2-to 3-pages. Be sure to address all of the questions completely and write in   conformity with CSU-Global writing and style guidelines. Upload your paper to the Assignment page for this   module.
