The TeenShale Network is a multi-year project that focused on two primary objectives: first, to monitor the quality of water in the Black Moshannon Creek, which is in close proximity to active hydraulic fracturing sites, and second to engage students in authentic field research in collaboration with experts. Looking forward, the TeenShale Network will focus increasingly on using data-driven hydrology tools, such as HydroDesktop to complement scientific concepts that were taught through the students’ field work by publishing field data in the CUAHSI Hydrologic Information System. Using CUAHSI WDC tools, students will be able to learn the complete lifecycle of data, from creation to publication to analysis to reuse.
