There’s No Business like Snow Business

As the days warm up, the snow is melting at a drastic rate.  Several members headed down to Yellow Creek to observe the flooding.

Crunching Numbers for Yellow Creek Watershed

Our last day of work.  We met with Ed to discuss individual assignments to complete for November’s meeting.  We then headed to the computer lab to crunch some numbers for velocity, trends, area, etc

Roaring Rotors of Yellow Creek

Yellow Creek Graph Today, October 27, the Bernoulli team finished calculations of the rate of discharge (output) and continued with the research of creek velocity.  We donned waders once again and hiked down to our research spot along Yellow Creek.

Yellow Creek with Ed-First Trip to the Creek

After learning about the hydrologic cycle and using topo maps  to designate our Yellow Creek watershed yesterday in the lab, we prepared for a morning of surveying and measuring the creek.  Carrying equipment and water boots, we took a hike … Continue reading

Watersheds with Ed

We learned about watersheds with our scientist Ed. A watershed is a section of land containing bodies of water and we tried to find the point in the watershed that the rainfall would naturally run towards. Ed helped us calculate … Continue reading
