Case study


Via Alfredo DeLeon, Chris Adkins
Amir's insight:
Chris Adkins's insight:This case study focuses on the relationship between groundwater and river water and the effects this relationship has on these water systems, the warrants and indepth analysis of such meets the [A]ccuracy portion of the CRAAP test. This information is relevant to the water quality/nutrients, importance to humans, and issues facing this biome portions of the Biome Chart. This information is also relatively current (within the last 10 years).

River and Streams Biome - Untamed Science

River and Streams Biome - Untamed Science | Rivers and Streams Biome - 5th Period EnviSchi | Scoop.it

The River and Stream Biome Rivers and Streams are places where water is being transported from one place to another. With few exceptions, rivers take the water that collects in a watershed and ultimately deposits that water in the ocean.

Chris Adkins's insight:The video in this source is relevant and serves as a baseline of basic information on the rivers and streams biome. Untamed Science is a credible source and this video was made under the direction of Rob Nelson, biologist and director of Untamed Science, which meets the [A]uthority Portion of the CRAAP Test. Though this video was made in 2009, this information is basic enough that it is still accurate after a few years.

Proposal would allow shale gas waste on barges - Marietta Times

“Proposal would allow shale gas waste on barges Marietta Times "Transporting drilling waste by truck leads to increased air pollution, risks accidents and spills, puts undue pressure on local roads and infrastructure; transporting this waste by...”
Amir's insight:
NEWS ARTICLE - It is added for meeting the [C] and [A] parts of the test. The [C]urrency can be assessed well via the articles date of November 5th, 2013, which (at the time of this publishing) is yesterday, and very up to date. It meets the [A]ccuracy test, because the news article is very warranted and informed, as the article cites reasons why surface transit makes this alternative a viable one.

Freshwater Biome

Freshwater Biome | Rivers and Streams Biome - 5th Period EnviSchi | Scoop.it

A freshwater biome is one that many people overlook the importance of. They are much smaller bodies of water, but important just the same. These freshwater biomes include lakes, rivers, streams, and creeks.

Sustainability | Free Full-Text | Two Rivers: The Politics of Wild Salmon, Indigenous Rights and Natural Resource Management

This paper compares two rivers, Tana River in Northern Norway and Columbia River on the northwest coast of the United States of America.
Amir's insight:
JOURNAL ARTICLE - This journal article details findings of a set of rivers and streams in which members of biology team came together and analyzed multiple aspects of river effects on salmon population, indigenous populations, and natural resource management. It meets the [A] part of the CRAAP test. Its [A]ccuracy to the topic is incredibly warranted as the study reviews many, if not all aspects of analysis. Its evidence is well researched and observed by salmon populations, intricate data, and native populations corroborating said research.
