Those with credit for one of GS 105 and 107 may only elect GS 205 for 1 credit. gaseous (outer) planets, Kepler's 1st and 3rd law (and satellite orbits), tilt of earth's rotation axis and 26,000yr presession, climate cycles, tides (Moon-Earth(-Sun) attraction and Earth's rotation).effects of earthquakes, elastic rebound theory, focus and epicenter, intensity scale, seismogram, magnitude scale, energy release, body (P and S) and surface waves, location of earthquake, global distrubution of earthquakes.
Two interactive exercises designed to help you learn about river processes like discharge, flooding, flood frequency, erosion, and deposition. You can view either a map of the Earth showing the day and night regions at this moment, or view the Earth from the Sun, the Moon, the night side of the Earth, above any location on the planet specified by latitude, longitude and altitude, from a satellite in Earth orbit, or above various cities around the globe.
Not all natural catastrophes are so apparently unpredictable, however.
You may need to reinstall these tools each time you use a campus-site computer, as this is not (yet) part of the Excel default settings. Use (User name) "buildearth" and (Password) "test" to access this protected site (omit quotation marks).

Earth Science Today, By Murphy and Nance, Brooks/Cole, 1999 an interactive resource guide based on the textbook is available on the Web at
This includes on-line quizzes and critical thinking exercises, and other chapter-by-chapter resources.
Polarity reversal, duration of reversal interval, magnetic anomalies on ocean floor, sea-floor spreading, spreading rate (several cm/yr), age of ocean floor (continent-continent collision (India-Asia), isostasy experiment (floating blocks); Archimedes' Principle; elevation of floating icebergs, mountains from different thickness (rather than different densities), continentla crust vs. Go to the website below and complete the Virtual Earthquake Module (both earthquake location and magnitude). Use (User name) "buildearth" and (Password) "test" to access this protected site (omit quotation marks). Print-out of histogram from step 6 (histogram of topographic profile). Why is the density of points greatest at the equator in Figure 4 of the exercise? This will load a host of analysis tools, which will now be visible when you select "Data Analysis" on the "Tools" menu.
oceanic crust thicknessconvection experiment, whole-mantle vs. layered convection, seismilogical evidence for plume tectonics (tomography and slab imaging), modeling (heating from below and internally heated; vary viscosity structure), plate driving forces (ridge push, slab pull, mantle drag), future plate reconstructions. Hand in a personalized print-out of the "Certificate of Completion", which should include a data summary. (Remember that this is supposed to be a random distribution of points on the surface of the Earth). A histogram of the Earth's elevations has two large peaks. You will find "Histogram" as one of several options. Read the description of the exercise and hand in the answer to the two questions.

Virtual Earthquake is an interactive Web-based program designed to introduce you to the concepts of how an earthquake EPICENTER is located and how the RICHTER MAGNITUDE of an earthquake is determined. Here you'll learn how geologists and archeologists determine the ages of rocks and ancient artifacts.

The new map resembles traditional 3-D perspective drawings of landscapes with the addition of a fourth dimension, geologic time, which is shown in color. Click on the "Next" icon at the bottom of the page to get to the subsequent sections.
