ES 100 Midterm 2 Study Guide. 15 November, 2004 Dr. Sherilyn Williams-Stroud Attached are the quizzes on chapters 9-12, and an answer key. Make sure you understand the concepts represented in the quiz multiple choice questions. To prepare for the material in chapter 13, review the graded quiz you took on line for that chapter. Make sure you also understand how to apply relative dating to a deformed structure using bedding, faulting and cross-cutting relationships. Understand the different types of mass wasting – the difference between slides and flows, and the speeds at which the different types of mass movements travel downhill Understand the relationships between the ages of beds in the middle of an anticline or syncline with the ages of the beds on the flanks of each of those structures. Be able to draw a cross section of an anticline or syncline. Read and understand the textbook section in chapter 13 dedicated to the Ogallala Aquifer. Understand what causes groundwater tables to drop and not recover, what is porosity and permeability, and what is recharge. If you want even more to study, I have also attached my lecture notes (the ones I typed – I don’t have type-up lecture notes for chapter 12) for chapters 9-13.
