Groundwater science

Water is a resource that needs careful management to ensure it is used sustainably. In this data set, students analyse real research data about the sustainability of groundwater on Rottnest Island. These activities are suitable for students in Years 7 to 10.

Students will:

  • understand the concepts of groundwater and aquifers and the role of the water cycle
  • use MS Excel to construct simple graphs (or draw graphs by hand)
  • interpret and analyse graphs and other representations of data
  • investigate the effects of a changing climate on groundwater resources
  • distinguish between correlation and causation
