The new web site, which provides information about our community-based groundwater monitoring network in Rocky View County has launched. The new web site provides information about the research, community outreach and educational material that make our project unique. Please visit our site at www.ucalgary.ca/groundwaterconnections
The research section of the website will provide readers with scientific information related to the Groundwater Connections project. On this page you will be able to find information on the climate and geology of Rocky View County. In addition there is an explanation of some basic hydrogeological processes, with the option to download Fact Sheets, which provide further information.
The Community Connections section is about how the volunteer-based groundwater monitoring network was developed. This provides community members and other municipalities with the background of the predecessor project located in West Nose Creek and information about the current County wide project. This provides community members and other municipalities with the background of the predecessor project located in West Nose Creek and information about the current County wide project.
The final section is the educational component of our project, which will include information for both teachers and students. This section provides resources for teachers to bring local groundwater research into their classrooms. On the Education Connections page there are four activities, which are related to the adapted research article located on the Research Connections page. These resources will be available online for local Grade 8 science teachers to use.
If you are interested in learning more about hydrogeology, community groundwater projects or the application for Grade 8 science classes, I would encourage you to visit our website!
