Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources in SLTNG

The primary goal of this unit is to engage students in simple interactive activities to explore the global climate system as a complex system, and in the use, modification, and creation of agent-based models to conduct experiments on simple virtual systems.  This unit uses StarLogo TNG to create models of the polar ice caps and the albedo effect, of a mountain stream runoff system, and a water spring.
