This module exposes students to quantitative and graphical analysis of hydrologic droughts with a focus on rivers and streams. We introduce students to hydrologic indices and indicators used by the federal government regarding drought or low flow conditions in streams. We visualize drying streams with Excel-derived colorful graphics called stream-flow stripes and stream-flow "heat maps" of annual and monthly data. Ultimately, students synthesize this information into a case study of a drying stream or streams to educate and inform stakeholders about water stewardship. These activities are relevant to students interested in careers in water monitoring, management, sustainability, and conservation. ​
