Brandon Moczygemba December 4, 2006 Geol Mr. Mcgehee Earth Becoming Alive Some of planet Earth’s heat comes from within the planet itself. It happens through radioactive decay which causes convection. Convection causes materials to flow from deep down inside the Earth’s core to the outer layer which heats it. The hydrologic cycle is also a key factor in the Earth process. The hydrologic cycle is when precipitation falls on the surface and is then evaporated or turns into surface run off into streams or rivers. A current problem we are enduring is that we are consuming natural resources faster than they are made. The main resource that is getting used is petroleum. Petroleum is used in many important things such as fuels for motor vehicles and other things. Oil companies use unique ways to find petroleum underground. One method is called remote sensing which is normally done from a plane or even from some satellite photos. Another problem we face is soil erosion, not only by water, but also by wind.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
