Cyberinfrastructure Water Modeling
Create an accurate depiction of the object in the container without moving the sand that covers it:
Welcome: Your Challenge
Models and Modeling
Can use massive amounts of data to model a simulation of changes over time.

1. Make holes at each intersection on one copy. Place the grid over the shoebox and probe the sand at the grid intersections.

2. Use one copy to draw the shape of the hidden object.

Utilizing:
Thermohaline Circulation Tank
To model natural phenomena: How temperature and salinity in water systems affect the circulation of water due to density differences.
Many variables to manipulate:
Temperature
Salinity
Heat source/ sun
Wind
Thermohaline Circulation
Physical Models
Mathematical Models
Reproduce past conditions
Forecast future scenerios

Systems and System Models
A system is an organized group of related objects or components;

Models can be used for understanding and predicting the behavior of systems.

Computer Simulations
Enable scientists to predict the behavior of systems.
"Students should be able to use provided computer simulations...as a tool for understanding and investigating aspects of a system."
