The Real World Learning Objects Resource Library has provided this activity to demonstrate the role of weather and topography in environmental disasters. Students will use real GIS data to analyze the relationship between weather, topography and landslides. Background materials and worksheets are provided in the “Content Materials” section, and the procedure for students to follow is clearly outlined. Additional materials that students may find helpful are located in the “Supplementary Resources” section. This is an excellent resource for environmental science and earth science teachers that can be used in the classroom or as a homework assignment.
