117 Lab #9: Comprehensive Lab Quiz Lab #1: Plate Tectonics Understand how the plates move relative to one another. Know how to draw the 3 different plate boundary types and all associated geologic features. For each boundary type, be able to describe the patterns of earthquakes, volcanoes, sea floor ages, and topographic features a on a map (review specialty maps in Lab #1). Be able to calculate how many kilometers a plate has moved in a give number of years (given a rate). Rock Cycle Understand the processes that can change one rock type into another. Lab #2: Igneous Rocks Be able to identify important igneous minerals. Be able to use rock texture and composition to identify igneous rocks. Understand how grain-size relates to cooling rate in an igneous rock. Understand which igneous rocks form at different tectonic settings (mantle, hot spot, convergent boundaries, divergent boundaries, etc.). Lab #3: Sedimentary Rocks and Depositional Environments Be able to identify important sedimentary minerals. Be able to use rock texture and composition to identify sedimentary rocks. Be able to determine the possible depositional environments of various sedimentary rocks. Be able to write a basic geologic history based on a sequence of sedimentary rocks. Lab #4: Metamorphic Rocks Be able to identify important metamorphic minerals. Be able to use rock texture and composition to identify metamorphic rocks. Be able to identify an appropriate parent rock (protolith) for a given metamorphic rock. Know the different types of metamorphism and their pressure/temperature conditions. Know how to draw isotherms. Be able to calculate a geothermal gradient. Lab #5: Campus Tour Know the rock types and depositional environment of the Chuckanut Formation. Lab #6: Streams, Coastlines and Groundwater Be able to recognize and name stream and coastal features. Know the difference between permeability and porosity. Know the difference between an aquifer and an aquitard. Be able to show and describe groundwater flow direction and contamination paths on a given diagram. Lab #7: Geologic Hazards of Whatcom County Be able to explain the difference between risk and hazard. Understand mitigation and its importance. Understand how the angle of repose and water contents affect slope stability. Understand the relationship between earthquakes, liquefaction, and mass wasting.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
