This short course provides broadcast meteorologists, educators, and the public with knowledge and instructional materials to help them understand watersheds as our environmental home. It describes the relationship between the weather and the health and protection of the environment. Environmental impacts in many areas of the country result from the daily actions of people. We can easily see the consequences of a major oil spill at sea that is driven ashore by winds and ocean currents, but what about the fertilizer that people put on their lawns and the de-icer they apply to their driveway, or changing a car’s oil in the backyard, or the pet waste in the yard or local park? Combined with weather, all of these have an impact on both the local environment and the larger regional environment. This feature was created by the COMET Program and provided to the National Science Digital Library (NSDL).

This course is a part of the Earth Gauge™ environmental curriculum for weathercasters and educators and was developed by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF). [See http:www.earthgauge.net/wp/]
