ESM 203: Earth System Science Midterm 2001 Jeff Dozier Assigned 8 November, due 9:30 a.m. 13 November Thomas Dunne ( either hardcopy or e-mail to Dozier) Yiping Cao The Midterm Examination counts 25% of your course grade. Answer all four questions. The exam is open-book. You may use your notes, assigned readings, or other material. You may not use each other, so please do not discuss the exam with any- one else. You should refrain from even discussing course notes once you have downloaded or read the exam. Some of the questions are straightforward, and ask you essentially to re-explain what we covered in class. Others questions are more mature, and require you to apply what you have learned to something we did not explicitly teach you. Read the questions carefully and write short, focused answers. Some of the questions may tempt you to diverge into questions of history, policy, or ideology. Avoid this by concentrating on the technical or management issue being raised. Try to be complete but concise. Do not bury your answer, which might be correct, too deeply. 1.

Assume that we are in a region where re-cycling of water vapor through the vegetation is not quantitatively important to rainfall gen- eration.
