Through a field trip along a local water course students will conduct a visual survey to discover information about local land use and water quality. They will document their findings with mapping and compilation of a river profile and use this initial reconnaissance to raise questions about local land use or river water quality that require investigation. This activity is part of the Ground Truth Studies Teacher Handbook, which provides more than 20 activities to build student understanding of global change and remote sensing, and includes background chapters for teachers, glossary, and appendices.
