1

River near here

Skukill
Old- slow moving flags nd wide floodplains

2

Characteristics of lithosphere

All of above

3

How can you reduce erosion

Roots of plants

4

How Great Lakes were formed

Glaciers

5

Explain how important earthquakes and volcanoes are
Should these be prevented
How can we avoid damage

They cause land to be recycled and refresh the crust
No bc it helps to replenish the earth
Build stronger buildings

6

Should food waste be composed or put in disposal
Explain each
Which is better stewardship and why

Composts- becomes soil through help of organism and time
Disposal- cut up to septic tank and biologically degraded
Composite bc it can help our ecosystems and plants and organisms

7

What area of ocean living or no living resources would you want to give money to and why

I would want to give it to the benthic organisms bc since they're so far down we can't really study them and there may be so,e we do to know about

8

What percent of water on earth is fresh water

3%

9

What're some characteristic of bilent volcano

Shoot hot ash and pyro classics

10

Effects of water that runs over surface of land

Erodes rock and soil and changes land

11

Would water be less or more slaty in warmer part of world

Less water goes into ocean bc of dry climate so more evaporation equals more salt

12

Are earthquakes always felt humans

No some are too small

13

A region we
L suited for hydroelectric power has

Lakes suitable for da,a
Hilly
Waterfalls

14

How does oxygen and carbon dioxide levels Change in a pond

During the day water, plants, and algae photosynthesize and release oxygen so the carbon dioxide levels fall
at night animals are still breathing so they use oxygen in the carbon dioxide and oxygen

15

What are the three types of stress to the earths crust experiences and what causes each

Tensional stress is too tough time plates moving apart
Compressional stress is two tectonic plates coming together
Shearing stress is two tectonic plates lighting passage weather

16

Describe boundaries of tectonic plates

Rocky jagged fractured

17

God has given us

Volcanoes

18

Currents dangerous how should you avoid while

They pull you out to see so you should swim parallel to shore

19

Is the largest drainage basin in the United States

Sippy River

20

What causes ocean tides

The moons gravity

21

Do mountains change

Yes, plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes reshape mountains

22

How does an earthquake center you travel

Seismic waves

23

What are the three types of seismic waves how fast do they travel what do they traveled through which causes the most damage

P waves of the fastest; they travel through solids liquids and gases; and to the earth
S waves are the second fastest; travel through solids; and through there
Surface waves are the slowest; a travel across the earth surface; are the most damaging

24

How does chemical weathering affect underground rock and soil

Carbonic acid is ground water and carbon dioxide away blinds down and leaves cabins

25

Why should we be good stewards of groundwater

It provides water for us to live and it is hard to clean ones it's polluted

26

Why are there variances in pond water temperature

Because it's shallow

27

Edges of continents

Under ocean water
