is a model?
A model is a simplified version of reality. Scientists use models to represent natural events or cycles.
What does a model do?
How do models work?
Great Salt Lake Model
is my model?
My model is a simplification of the Great Salt Lake hydrologic cycle. It illustrates the inflows and outflows of the Great Salt Lake. Inflows are sources that add water to the lake, such as rivers, streams, springs, and rain. Outflows, such as evaporation, take water away from the lake.
What is the purpose of my
Why is modeling the GSL and
lake level change important?
How did I create my model?
|Due to time constraints and software conflicts, the model is not up and running yet. Keep checking back in and the great salt lake model should be here.|
