Climate Change

Please watch the following suite of videos that focuses on the reality of a changing climate to both humankind and other species as a look is taken at the ways that animals respond to global climate change (scroll down this page). Then make a first post based on your reflections and comments. Please be sure to make an effort to discuss what you personally think and avoid any form of copy and paste' model. It is your own opinions, reflections, and commentary that you should provide for the forum to be effective and interesting. ...

Geology Discussion Board

Type of paper content (Any Type)SubjectOtherNumber of pages1Format of citation otherNumber of cited resources0Type of service writingI would like for you to discuss the impacts associated with living near an active volcano and/or earthquake-prone area. Pick a volcano or a seismically active area on the planet that interests you and examine the past damages associated with this location. What has been done to try to ′solve′ the issues within these naturally hazardous areas? Why do people continue to live near these areas even though they are known to be dangerous? Maybe look at an example of an area that had been inactive for a long time, but suddenly became active again. Discuss a bit about the geologic history of your location of interest and then discuss with TWO other students about their locations. Try to pick different areas, as this is a big planet! Feel free to include pictures of the location - but please be considerate of the images....

Stability and Stuves

In this lab we will be exploring stuve diagrams, and how we can use them to determine the stability of the atmosphere.Part I Learning about the StuveA stuve diagram is a way that meteorologists plot upper air data, that makes it easier to analyze and use for weather forecasting. Upper air data are meteorological measurements collected from radiosondes or rawinsondes, also known as weather balloons. These instruments collect data on temperature, humidity (dewpoint temperature), wind speed and direction, and pressure. Here is a short video on the weather balloon launch process in Greenland:AGU 2014 Student Videos - Kathleen Willmot (Links to an external site.)AGU 2014 Student Videos - Kathleen WillmotTo learn more about stuve diagrams, what they are, and how they are used, please read through this tutorial:http://www.csun.edu/~hmc60533/CSUN_103/weather_exercises/soundings/smog_and_inversions/Understanding%20Stuve_v3.htm (Links to an external site.)Part II Downloading Stuve DiagramsIn this section we will go through a short tutorial on how to find stuve diagrams.One of the best sources for these diagrams is...

Forecasting Precipitation Types

IL-6: Forecasting Precipitation TypesDue Sunday by 11:59 pmPoints 6Submitting a text entry box or a file uploadAvailable after Jan 13 at 12 amIn this lab, we will explore precipitation formation and how to forecast different precipitation types.Part I Precipitation FormationIn previous activities, we found that to form a cloud you have to bring the air to saturation, or to a relative humidity of 100%. The two ways this can happen is by reducing the temperature of the air or adding water vapor to the air. In the atmosphere, this usually occurs by reducing the temperature of the air by lift. In previous chapters, they discussed some of the lifting mechanisms in the atmosphere including fronts, convection, mountains, and convergence. All of these will make it more likely that a cloud will form. Further, having an unstable atmosphere will make it more likely that air will continue to rise and increase the chances of cloud formation.However, to create precipitation that will...

Glaciers

The questions you will need to answer/analyze in paragraph form are:How did John Muir and Josiah Whitney differ in their theories of how Yosemite Valley formed?In 1872, what was John Muir’s data collection method for testing if glaciers are alive (moving)?What is the data on the diminishing glaciers of the American West? The world? What does this melting coincide with?Since record-keeping began, what does the temperature record show for California and how does it affect the show pack in the Sierras?When a glacier disappears, what are the effects on the local ecology?What did the research find about the difference between the Lyell and Maclure Glaciers in Yosemite?The required article is attached. ...
