Mission HydroSci terrain simulator provides students with a set of tools to investigate water in socio-ecological systems. Students can manipulate topography by increasing and decreasing terrain elevation. They can also collect data to make sense of the changes they enact by placing sensors in the environment to monitor variables such as water flow, volume and quality. By manipulating the terrain, students discover how water cycles through the environment. A time-machine function allows students to predict and then observe long-term implications of hydrologic cycles.
