No resources have been tagged as aligned with this standard.
Describe wetlands in terms of their effects (e.g., habitat, flood, buffer zones, prevention areas, nurseries, food production areas).
Explain factors (e.g., nutrient loading, turbidity, rate of flow, rate of deposition, biological diversity) that affect water quality and flow through a water system.
Explain the multiple functions of different water systems in relation to landforms (e.g., buffer zones, nurseries, food production areas, habitat, water quality control, biological indicators).
Explain how a wetland influences water quality, wildlife and water retention.
Explain relationships among physical characteristics, vegetation, topography, and flow as it relates to water systems.
