Stream Velocity and Discharge

As you walk along Spring Creek, you will notice that the water seems to be moving quickly in some places and much slower in others. This is largely due to the shape of the stream channel. In this activity, students will measure the amount of water passing through several locations along the creek to see how stream velocity and stream area are related.
