Title: Human Impacts on the Sustainability of Groundwater
Instructions: You will need to write a 1-page lab report using the scientific method to answer the following question: If current human development does not change, will groundwater sustainability be affected? When your lab report is complete – submit it in the classroom. Part I: Using the time progression of industrialization and human development, fill in the data table below to help you write up your lab report. Time Period Impact to Forest Groundwater Levels Saltwater Intrusion Farming Industrial development Population 1800s Large Forest Lots of Groundwater None Small Farms None Limited 1900s Decreased by 50% Decreased by 50% Ocean Moved into groundwater Are Larger but fewer Exceptional Growth Increase in housing 2000s Decreased 90% Decreased 90% Greater Movement Size Decreased by 20% Decreased by 10-15% Decreased by 10-15% Part II: Write a 1-page lab report using the following scientific method sections: Purpose
State the purpose of the lab.
This is an investigation of what is currently known about the question being asked. Use background information from credible references to write a short summary about concepts in the lab. List and cite references in APA style. Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome
A hypothesis is an educated guess. Based on what you have learned and written about in the Introduction, state what you expect to be the results of the lab procedures. Methods
Summarize the procedures that you used in the lab. The Methods section should also state clearly how data (numbers) were collected during the lab; this will be reported in the Results/Outcome section. Results/Outcome
