How do you teach students about water quality and/or how scientists go about their work? According to a recent blog, “Researching Water Quality” posted by Dorian Wood Janney, one way is to share articles with them!

To read the entire blog – and to follow a link to a relevant article entitled “Study Maps Hidden Water Pollution in U.S. Coastal Areas” – click here. As Janney states in her blog, “This article includes picture and graphs, and would be a fabulous way to show students the importance of looking at multiple data sets to determine the quality of water and to determine how various areas are impacted and can impact water quality.”
