Exam-ReviewWorksheet-DrPeacorLectures.doc 1 Exam 1 Review Worksheet for Dr. Peacor’s Lectures ISP 217. In this review worksheet, I give some questions, and some stuff to know. If you can answer these questions, understand what is highlighted here, and understand the figures presented in class, that is everything you need to know for the test. Test study tip I: After glancing at figures in the power point slides, see if you can reproduce them (draw them roughly) without looking at them. This is a good challenge and assures that you understand the figure, because you need to be able to come up with e.g. the axes’ labels, and figure out what the figures is “telling” us. Study tip II : Use these review questions as fallows: Review the lecture and your notes before trying to answer the questions. Answer what you can. And then go back over the slides and your notes. I recommend this way as it increases retention of the information (it is more “active” learning). Study tip III: Study with a classmate. (This increases the chances that you are studying the right answers to the questions). Lecture 2 - -GlobalHydroCycle-GlobalEnergy Terms to know and understand: Condensation Convection Precipitation Infiltration Runoff Evaporation Evapotranspiration Atmospheric Advection Aquifer Unconfined aquifer Confined aquifer Water table Vadose zone Aquitard Ogallala aquifer Recharge Solar radiation Wavelength spectrum Visible light UV light Infrared light Know the meaning of all terms hydrological cycle processes (first 8 terms above). Condensation is what? What is convection and what is it’s relationship to condensation and clouds? Where does water beading on a cold pop can come from? How does water re-enter the atmosphere? Which way is water transported due to atmospheric advection? What is the similarity and difference between runoff and infiltration? Questions such as the in class question: Does more or less water travel to the atmosphere each year than is in the atmosphere? By about how much? (You will be given the figure if asked a question like this) What % of water is in the Oceans, Glaciers, and Atmosphere? (You don’t need to know all the other values in the table on “Reservoir - Percentage of Total”, but know these). How does deforestation affect flooding?
