What is Physical Geography By Joshua Smith 1a. The lamppost is tilting because soil movement down the side of the hill makes it lose its gripping in the ground. It is because of soil creeping, the soil is very slowly moving down the hill. b. It is pointed in that direction because that is downhill so gravity is pulling it to point that way. Objects that are on land that is soil creeping always are pointing downhill. 2. a. 12:54 Febuary 7 th 2007 b. i. West ii. 70 Degrees c. i. Move West ii. 55 Degrees d. It will be farther east because the days are longer. e. June 16 because that is when it is closest to the June solstice when it is summer and the sun is highest in the sky. 3. a. Wind blows more often into the back of his head because of the wind direction is usually from west to east in middle latitudes. b. You would have to dig to about 5 ft below the hill because that will be around the base water level, maybe lower because it is more of a type “A” watershed. c. Madison sandstone also known as sunset point member of Jordan formation.
