CD - The ways that flows of water connect places as it moves through the environment and the way this affects places.

 

Water is constantly moving from one place to another. The processes that move water are all part of the water cycle. In this visualization, the blue raindrop shows where water is. The red arrows show the processes that could move it to another place.

CD - The causes, impacts and responses to an atmospheric or hydrological hazard.

 

This video shows how something like a dam, which one might think is a positive agent for change can have a massive negative impact upon the people in surrounding areas and the environment in general. Something such as evaporation in the pooled water reducing available drinking water is something which is easy to misunderstand, but is a real threat in areas which have drinking water issues, such as Sub-Saharan Africa. The damming of rivers also deprives down stream areas of the water they rely upon. This video is a good introduction to these kinds of ideas, and many others.

CD - The classification of environmental resources and the forms that water takes as a resource.

 

This interactive map documents where 443 million people around the world get their water (although the United States data is by far the most extensive).  Most people can't answer this question. A recent poll by The Nature Conservancy discoverd that 77% of Americans (not on private well water) don't know where their water comes from, they just drink it. This link has videos, infographics and suggestions to promote cleaner water.  This is also a fabulous example of an embedded map using ArcGIS Online to share geospatial data with a wider audience.
