Sci 8 Plate Tectonics packageName: ______. What is the Continental Drift Theory? What is Pangaea and how did it fit into the Continental Drift Theory? Why was Wegener s Continental Drift hypothesis rejected? Which continents were easiest to fit together from your Pangea Puzzle? Explain why.
FIELD PROBLEMS IN SEDIMENTARY GEOLOGY.
Title: Sandwich (Stratigraphy) Lab. Objective: The layers of a sandwich can be used to represent rock layers in nature. Geologists-the scientists who study Earth and rocks-have developed a set of principles to compare the ages of rock layers and the events.
Unit 5 Alternative Project in lieu of Unit Test. You and your partner will combine resources and talents to present a product to the class that teaches all aspects of Continental Drift Theory, Plate Tectonics, and Volcanoes, their structure and types.

Q. What is it like in the eye of a tornado?Q. What is a supercell thunderstorm? Q. What is the difference between a funnel cloud and a tornado? Q. What is the path length of tornadoes? How long do they last? How fast do they move? Q. When and where do tornadoes occur? Q. Does hail always come before the tornado? Rain? Lightning? Utter silence?
Damaging wind from thunderstorms is much more common than damage from tornadoes. In fact, many confuse damage produced by straight-line winds and often erroneously attribute it to tornadoes. Given recent severe weather with both damaging straight-line winds and a few weak tornadoes across the local area
Hurricane Season Q A When is hurricane season? Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30, although hurricanes sometimes can develop at other times of the year. Historically, September tends to be the most active month for the west coast of Florida. During this time, tropical depressions and tropical storms also can occur.
There are no other storms like hurricanes on Earth. Views of hurricanes from satellites located thousands of miles above the Earth show how these powerful, tightly coiled weather systems are unique. Each year, on average, 10 tropical storms (of which six become hurricanes) develop over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, or Gulf of Mexico.
Before 2017 the Middle Texas Coast had gone more than 45 years without experiencing a major hurricane. Generations of our citizens had grown up and lived here without ever having to suffer through the impacts of a major hurricane. Sadly, on August 25 of last year, our luck ran out as Hurricane Harvey came ashore.
Earth Hazards: How confident are you at each of the objectives below. Use a 3 colour code system to highlight your level of understanding of each objective. Green positive. Amber nearly there, need to complete further notes, questioning or research.
Rock Cycle Study Guide. 1. For each of the following rocks. Explain how they form. Describe each rock type. 2 examples of each rock. a)molten rock (either magma or lava) cools off to become igneous.
This course is an important study in a world faced with limited energy, resources and habitable areas. We need to continue our search for knowledge and understanding of the Earth and its intricate structures, at the surface level and below. The Earth.
Questions to Ask: Changing Earth. Erosion and Weathering. What is a constructive force? A constructive force is one that builds something up. For example, a mountain forming as a volcano erupts or a delta forming as deposition occurs. What is a destructive force?
