Forestry Paper

5-6 Forestry paper with graphs.Tutorials link for graphs:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J21gDUd1Hwk&t=218shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qLmhQMn0QY&feature=youtu.bePlease read the first file very carefully, the rest of them are tutorials and materials.Fixing:Species for the second part of your reportHi, As described in the “Genetics Term Project Instructions 2020 Final.docx”, the second major part of your report involves discussing your results and including a comparison of Garry oak with another species (not all students will have the same species).The species you will be comparing with your results is Pinus albicaulis (Whitebark pine). Attached is the paper (Bower and Aitken, 2008) from where you should extract all the information that is necessary for your comparisons (e.g. provenance locations, r, clines). Tables 2 and 4 will give you all the information you need for great comparisons with your Garry oak data, but if you want to go deeper into local adaptation and seed transfer, this paper provides plenty of good info.Some tips:- Although both r (correlation coefficient) R2 (coefficient of determination) indicate a...

Avalanche

First, you will read the avalanche case study, which is an accident report of an avalanche related accident that occurred in Colorado. After reading this report you will fill out the avalanche worksheet assuming the role as an accident investigator who is seeking clues to causes of the accident.AvalancheCaseStudy.pdfAvalancheWorksheet.pdfSecond, you will look at a few surface maps and forecast upslope mountain snow.e4_exmanualch16_16_2.pdfLast, you will look at and label a figure showing a downslope windstorm.e4_exmanualch17_17_3.pdf ...

Environmental Hazards

Choose an environmental hazard that is most likely to occur in your area (you may also choose to discuss the area in which you grew up, an area in which you used to live, or one in which a close family member lives). Conduct some research and discuss the steps that could be taken to prepare for such an event and by whom. Choose the environmental hazard that is least likely to happen in that same area and explain why. Provide examples and explanations from sources to support your answer(s) when applicable and cite any sources you consult using APA style. ...

Severe Activity

For this lab we will be investigating tornadoes; how, when, and where they form!At the end of the lab you should hand in the completed "SevereActivity" as well as the answers to the questions listed throughout this assignment.Part I Thunderstorm & Tornado FormationA tornado is a fast rotating column of air that touches the ground at the bottom and a storm cloud at the top. The first step to forming a tornado is:1. Create a thunderstormThunderstorms are when warm air rises and condenses, forming a cloud. The three necessary ingredients for forming a thunderstorm areLift - This is something that makes the air rise and could be surface heating, a cold front or dry line, or even a mountain.Instability - When the atmosphere is unstable, air that is lifted continues to rise. Just like a hot air balloon.Moisture - Moisture is the fuel for the storm and is needed to form the clouds and precipitation.This video describes the ingredients for...

Earthquake

The earthquake I selected occurred in Kuril’sk, Russia on February 02, 2020. The location exactly is 45.615°N 148.958°E. This earthquake occurred at 10:33 am had a depth of 144.0, and had a magnitude of 7.0 mww. “In the southern section of the Kuril arc oblique subduction results in the partitioning of stress into both trench-normal thrust earthquakes (e.g., the 12/03/1995 M 7.9 Kuril Island event) and trench-parallel strike-slip earthquakes (e.g., the 10/16/1994 M 6.7 Kuril Island event). This oblique convergence also drives the southwestern translation of the Kuril Arc, and its collision with the Japan Arc. The collision, in turn, drives the uplift of the Hidaka Mountains and causes northwest-southeast oriented compressional earthquakes across Hokkaido” and the fault size measures “from near the base of the trench to depths of 40 to 60 km” (USGS). I find it very interesting that the faults involved are different, one being a normal fault and the other being a strike-slip fault. The estimated...

Contemporary Cultural Geography Of Minnesota

3-5 pages APA formatWrite a "research" paper dealing with some topical (current) aspect of the cultural geography of Minnesota or the British Isles not specifically covered in class (i.e. not Mall of America or Belfast murals). You will need to consult relevant sources including local newspapers, magazines, websites, and connect the information found in those sources to theoretical approaches discussed in class and/or in the readings. You might write about an issue or topic concerning landscape, popular culture (including festivals and commemorations), class, gender, sexuality, homeplace, globalization, but you must write about it/them in the context of a specific local place. You may address topics with a broad regional scope but be sure through your analysis to justify how and why your topic is a state-wide one (perhaps related to regional/state tourism or cultural initiatives carried out at the state or local level by the government). Don't succumb to overgeneralization.Your paper must contain at least 5 sources, at least 3...
