GEOL 102 FINAL EXAM STUDY GUIDE FALL 2011 Mafic minerals are more susceptible to chem weathering than felsic From the first two midterms: Know rheological and compositional schemes of Earth’s structure as per <earth_strucutre.pdf> Know the geologic definition of a mineral Know how to recognized diagrams of normal faults, reverse faults, and strike-slip faults. Know the definition of a soil. Know that basalt is an extrusive igneous rock Know that granite is an intrusive igneous rock. Know the names of clastic sedimentary rocks. New material not on midterms 1 or 2 Know what types of landslides typically occur in thick, cohesive homogeneous sediment such at the mud rich part of the Franciscan Complex. Know what is the most common cause of landslides is, and the mechanism associated with this cause the destabilizes hillslopes (this was two quiz questions on quiz 8) All notes and information regarding mass movement Definition of mass movement Definition of debris flows, earthflows, and slumps Events constituting a debris flow The role of water in sediment transport via debris flows versus the role of water in sediment transport via streams. Factors that influence the size of waves Relative widths of summertime and wintertime beaches in California Look at picture, but you know that shit already nigga August nice wide beach with berm Winter: berm is gone and beach is more narrow. At high tide there is no beach at all. Sandbar: transfer of sand from sandbar because of intense web activity. The sand from berm is eroded and sent down coast in littoral cell Be able to sketch summertime and wintertime beach profiles for California beaches Be able to draw the location and direction of a littoral cell. longshore drift and littoral cells Features and processes on coastlines related to longshore drift and littoral cells Factors that favor the existence of sand spits and bay mouth bars on coastlines

Factors necessary for sand spits and bay mouth bars to form on tectonically active coastlines Wave refraction, sea stacks, and tombolos, what causes ___ to form? Wave refraction. When there is a healdland, waves bend around it and the side of it is eroded. Therefore over time a sea arch may develop (natural bridge) and eventually the land will be separated from mainland to create a sea stack. During beaches in summertime, the waves are still refracting and energy is reduced during that time and sand gets pushed up behind eas stack and a tombolo forms (pile
