Unable to conduct measurements on the ground in the politically unstable region, UC Irvine scientists and colleagues used data from space to uncover the extent of the problem. What is the Richter Scale Anyway? -This site does a great job explaining what the typical effects are that we feel when we experience earthquakes of different magnitudes. And yet a single study of a single small section of the deep ocean yielded 898 species -- half of them previously undiscovered.

To start the lesson, we brainstorm and try to pin point what it means to be alive. Fish carcasses increased insect abundance eight-fold in one experiment (Wipfli et al. 1998). Hide This study aims to understand how different reference periods (i.e., calibration periods) of climate data for estimating the drought index influence regional drought assessments.

Geologists warned people of the coming eruption and thousands of people were saved from the destructive pyroclastic flows and lahars that occurred during the eruption. Since rivers contain so much water, humans have used them since the beginning of civilization as a source of water, food, transportation, defense, power, recreation, and waste disposal. Students in Plant and Earth Science benefit from dedicated faculty, a hands-on learning environment, active student organizations and countless opportunities for research and internships.

What they found, which they described last year in Science, sparked a broad controversy that may revolutionize the science of fluvial geomorphology and the field of riparian restoration. Spend 6 tearing her close 3rd place isnt. Below are some fun ways to incorporate vocabulary into your lesson plans: Cut & Paste: Have students cut out the definitions and paste or tape them next to the correct word.

It is said that the locals, who spotted it by chance, initially believed it could be a mutant chicken embroyo that had been discarded. This process takes thousands or millions of years. In some regions such as the North Atlantic near Greenland, cooled high-salinity surface waters can become dense enough to sink to great depths.

Forests in Sustainable Mountain Development: A State of Knowledge Report for 2000". Seed inputs to microsite patch recovery on two Tropandean landslides in Ecuador. In this classic experiment, we are able to see the movement of convection currents as the smoke from the smoldering paper towel travels downward with the cool air into the box. Rivers provide natural habitats for fish, birds, and other wildlife. The level of detail in the image is so great that it can seem as though you are standing over a scale model made out of papier-mâché and foam blocks.

The flow is made up partly of precipitation that falls directly on the stream, surface runoff that flows over the land surface and through channels, subsurface runoff that infiltrates the surface soils and moves laterally towards the stream, and groundwater runoff from deep percolation through the soil horizons. This link takes you to a web page on my site that has individual jpg's, diagrams, flash files, etc. that show more detail or more examples of things discussed in the regular chapter PowerPoints.

The smaller particles are carried away from the coast by the undercurrent. Many large dams have been built on the river to provide hydroelectricity and water for irrigation. Most water vapor gets into the atmosphere by a process called evaporation. Hutton's ideas were not immediately embraced by the scientific community, largely because he was reluctant to publish. For example, if this line of reasoning were valid, the amount of aluminum in the ocean would prove that the Earth was only 100 years old!
