GEOS 1134: Homework 1 1. Explain how the geological features in this image formed. Each colored/patterned layer represents a sedimentary rock unit. The bottom six layers (the first purple layer to the second yellow layer) were first deposited then uplifting occurred. After the uplifting o nth first six layers, the majority of layers six, five, and four were eroded away, as well as the top portion of layer three. Then angular unconformities developed followed by renewed deposition. 2. Using the geological cross section above, put the rock layers (each named by a different letter) in order from oldest to youngest. (Oldest) T, Z, C, P, X, M, H (Youngest) 3. Some calculations:
a. Using a scale of 1 inch = 1000 miles for a globe, how thick is the earth’s crust?

### What students are saying

• 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.
