GY 301: Geomorphology Laboratory 1: Pace Count & Closed Traverse 1 Your Task: Today’s first lab exercise consists of 3 specific tasks, all of which are important first steps in being able to read, interpret and ultimate to manufacture contour maps. The first two problems were conceived by Dr. Allison and will require you to get hot and sweaty outside as well as to use a calculator. The last problem set is something I threw in to remind you about map scales. Have fun with them! Due Date: Thursday August 27 th by 5:00 PM (my mailbox in LSCB 136) Problem 1: The class will meet outside the Life Sciences building near the parking lot for orientation. You will determine your pace count (feet per stride) in this lab, along with statistics on accuracy. Next to the LSCB will be several stakes set at 200 feet apart. Using these stakes measure the number of paces between the stakes 20 times. Use the below table to record the data. After recording the data use the worksheet to calculate: 1.
