  • Wetlands Improve Iowa’s Water Quality – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    wetland during the past two years has shown the increasing capacity of aquatic vegetation to process nitrate Time series showing real time nitrate concentration measured at the Slough Creek CREP near Floyd Iowa IIHR water quality stations are located upstream inlet and downstream outlet of the CREP wetland Nitrate in the water entering the wetland can exceed 20 parts per million ppm more than twice the safe limit for drinking water As the water warms in late spring however this aquatic vegetation and other life in the wetland begins to process nitrate and sequester it as organic material or convert it to harmless nitrogen gas which is released to the atmosphere By the end of the summer nitrate levels in the water leaving the wetland are less than 2 ppm Landowner Mike Stricker says his family was motivated to implement this practice on their land We want to do the right thing which is reduce nitrogen and phosphorous heading to the Cedar Wetlands not only provide nutrient processing but they also create badly needed wildlife habitat for birds reptiles amphibians and certain fishes I ve seen several clutches of pheasants in the grass around the wetland and I ve seen pelicans and trumpeter swans right on the wetland reports Stricker There were 2 000 3 000 snow geese on it this spring Documenting performance with water monitoring is critical when taxpayer and farmer resources are used to implement conservation Farmers need to know what works and what doesn t and the public needs to know that these efforts will manifest themselves in improved water quality IIHR researchers are helping Iowans achieve both of these objectives Home About Greetings from the Director Fact Page IIHR at a Glance Where is IIHR Communications History IIHR s Historical Studies History Resources Hans Albert Einstein His Life as a Pioneering Engineer Sustainability at IIHR Evolving with the Times Intellectual Connections Worldwide IIHR Alumni Worldwide Archives Films by Hunter Rouse Employment Contact IIHR Webcam Education Graduate Program Admission Assistantships and Fellowships Graduate Student Opportunities Undergraduate Opportunities International Perspectives Service Projects Habitat for Humanity s Women Build Project Fluids Lab Meet Our Faculty and Staff Brandon Barquist Talking Shop Pablo Carrica Enjoying the Challenge George Constantinescu Rivers Run in the Family Carrie Davis Playing in the Mud Teresa Gaffey Transformations Anton Kruger How Stuff Works Troy Lyons Bridging the Gap Ricardo Mantilla Going with the Flow Jacob Odgaard Making an Impact Michelle Scherer Solving the Puzzle Fred Stern Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics Stephanie Surine She s a Rocker Eric Tate Studying the Human Costs of Flooding H S Udaykumar The Reluctant Engineer Gabriele Villarini Working the Numbers Mark Wilson What s Not to Like Meet Our Students Tibebu Ayalew Accidental Engineer Ali Reza Firoozfar The Experimentalist Ruben Llamas Success among Friends Beda Luitel Finding a Way Kara Prior For the Love of Discovery Harvest Schroeder The Human Factor Stephanie Then Like a Duck to Water Meet Our Alumni Jim Ashton Turnaround Guy Maria Laura Beninati The Iowa

  • Teaching How to Teach Climate Science – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    April 25 26 2015 One of the things we wanted to make sure was that what we were proposing was directly relevant to these new standards for teaching science in schools says Villarini The standards include four topics Physical Sciences Life Sciences Earth and Space Sciences and Engineering Technology and Applications of Science As part of the NGSS teachers are required to develop lessons that address a question through scientific investigation Both Villarini and Neal stressed the importance of teachers and students addressing climate change in the classroom Climate change is a hotly debated topic says Villarini He explains that by experiencing data first hand rather than purely reading scientific articles a person can make a more informed decision about such a highly contested subject According to data compiled by the Iowa Climate Change Advisory Council the changing climate has affected the state in a number of ways Iowa has already experienced many changes ranging from more precipitation which has led to extreme flooding events to higher temperatures and humidity from agricultural challenges such as increased soil erosion and runoff to changes in animal migration patterns and finally from the public health effects of air pollution to those of a warmer climate Neal believes these changes and general attitudes toward them are actually overwhelming students these days Kids actually get bogged down he says They just throw their hands up and say There s nothing I can do about it it s too big for me But there are things we can do about it And that s where I think we need to go with this to get kids interested We need to be letting kids look at the real data and make a decision based on science and data not based on politics or religion or my mom said that climate change isn t happening because that s not going to move our kids forward There are plans underway to repeat the workshop Hot Topic Climate Iowa later this year and in 2016 at other locations around the state Tags climate change Gabriele Villarini K 12 NGSS Shianne Gruss STEM Home About Greetings from the Director Fact Page IIHR at a Glance Where is IIHR Communications History IIHR s Historical Studies History Resources Hans Albert Einstein His Life as a Pioneering Engineer Sustainability at IIHR Evolving with the Times Intellectual Connections Worldwide IIHR Alumni Worldwide Archives Films by Hunter Rouse Employment Contact IIHR Webcam Education Graduate Program Admission Assistantships and Fellowships Graduate Student Opportunities Undergraduate Opportunities International Perspectives Service Projects Habitat for Humanity s Women Build Project Fluids Lab Meet Our Faculty and Staff Brandon Barquist Talking Shop Pablo Carrica Enjoying the Challenge George Constantinescu Rivers Run in the Family Carrie Davis Playing in the Mud Teresa Gaffey Transformations Anton Kruger How Stuff Works Troy Lyons Bridging the Gap Ricardo Mantilla Going with the Flow Jacob Odgaard Making an Impact Michelle Scherer Solving the Puzzle Fred Stern Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics Stephanie Surine She s a Rocker Eric Tate
