Welcome to the Watershed Dynamics Project!

The GLOBE Watershed Dynamics Project is one of four Earth System Science Projects (ESSPs) funded by NASA and NSF to develop hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science activities for The GLOBE Program. The Project enables students to investigate their own watershed in order to understand the flow of water through the watershed, how human activities within the watershed both depend on and impact its hydrology, and how land use changes can affect the plant and animal communities in the watershed.

This project offers GLOBE students the opportunity to conduct science investigations on local and regional watersheds using real-time and historical scientific data from the dataset being constructed by the Consortium of Universities for Advancement of Hydrologic Science (CUAHSI).
