The area is quite humid and temperate, like Nova Scotia. 1. Determine the average gradient of Calder Creek, in m/km. Based on the gradient you determined, is Calder Creek more likely to have youthful or mature characteristics? 2. What is the direction of beach drift along the coastline? 3. Determine the location of a wave-cut cliff in the map area. 4. What is the relief in the map area? 5. Plot an arrow on the map, showing the most likely flow path of contaminants from the west end of the dump, transported by shallow groundwater. The head of the arrow should stop at the point where the groundwater emerges on the surface. 6. Could reefal limestone be forming today in the Atlantic Ocean in this map area? Explain. 7. Determine the attitude of the (a) dike, (b) fault, (c) unit F, and (d) unit B as precisely as possible. 8. Identify the angular unconformity on the map, if one exists in the map area. 9. Determine the stratigraphic thickness of unit F, as precisely as possible. 10. Classify the fault, assuming no strike-slip movement. 11. Classify the fault, assuming no dip-slip movement. 12.

    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.

    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.
