Jonathan Chin's curator insight, November 8, 2013 10:08 AM
Journal Article C: This article was published in November 2010 and has been peer edited by people from then to now in 2013. This is still relevant to our topic because the temperatures will change over long periods of time and the temperature is still changing today which is why there are still peer edits in 2013. R: the intended audience are readers and other scientists that want to learn more or want to verify the authors claim. The information has much detail, if explains the cause of the temperature change, how much it will change, and it's potential effects on the environment. A:this article has a lot of credibility. Scientists from universities, institutes, and research departments all contributed to the information in this journal article. All the peer reviewers approve and only a few disagree with this statement the river temperatures are changing. A: this article is clearly accurate because it clearly explains how and why the temperature is changing and specifically gives you an estimate of how much it will change. P: the purpose of the article is to inform people of the temperature change of rivers and steams and the after effects of them so that we can prepare for those changes in the future. There probably wouldn't be any bias in this article because they tested for the information. R:

Video: River and Streams Biome - Untamed Science

Video: River and Streams Biome - Untamed Science | Rivers and Streams | 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.

Winona's insight:

This is a video created by the Untamed Science website detailing rivers and streams. It passes the CRAAP test as it was published in October 2013, and is therefore recent. It was also published by Rob Nelson, an ecologist who graduated with a degree from University of Hawaii.

Case study: Groundwater and river water quality interactions in the Mataura catchment


Via Alfredo DeLeon, Chris Adkins
Winona's insight:

This case study discusses in detail the groundwater and river water quality interaction in the Mataura Catchment. It meets the CRAAP test as it was published sometime in 2013, and was retrieved from a UCLA website, and is therefore credible and recent.

Winona's insight:

This source meets the criteria for encyclopedic information. While it was published, and therefore is not particularly current, the information was published by the University of California Museum of Paleontology. All the inofmation was curated from dependable sources, such as qualified experts in the subject of biomes.
