Can you measure the speed and force of raindrops?
What is the effect on soil, with and without ground cover? 
Could you simulate the effect of rain?
Meteorology is the science that studies atmospheric phenomena and weather conditions. We want to be able to predict weather and it's effects on our environment. Conditions such as rain, snow, flood and tornado are especially important because of their potential hazard and economic effects. Rain is among the weather conditions that causes erosion and may lead to floods, landslides and avalanches.
In this project we will try to determine the speed and force of raindrops. We do this because speed and force of rain drops are two factors that affect the rate of erosion. We will then simulate the effect of rain on soil, with and without grass and vegetation.
 Project description:
In this project you will simulate a rain generator and test the effect of raindrops with different sizes or different speeds on soil erosion. You will also perform an experiment to see how vegetation and organic matter affects the rate of erosion caused by rain.
