GO125Natural Disasters, Final exam, CS Verma Park University 86. In the United States today, lightning strikes are responsible for more than 95% of all fires.  A. TRUE B. FALSE 87. In 1880, nearly half of forest fires were caused by people clearing land.  88. Possible causes of mass extinctions include:  the longer-lasting and more far-reaching effects of plate  tectonics, voluminous volcanic outpourings, climate changes, ocean-composition changes, asteroid and  comet impacts, and biologic processes A. TRUE B. FALSE 89. Stony meteorites are less commonly collected than iron meteorites because _______________.  90. Why are there so many more impact craters visible on the Moon than on the Earth?  A. The moon has been hit by many more meteorites than the Earth, particularly the >1 km diameter  bodies that create the biggest craters B. The moon formed long before the earth formed, so has had more time to be hit by meteorites C. The moon is made out of softer rock than the Earth that is more readily deformed when impacted by  meteorites D. Because of gravitational effects, the moon deflects many of the meteorites that would  otherwise hit the Earth E. Craters on the Earth can be destroyed by erosion and mountain-building processes, or obscured by  vegetation or sedimentation F. The period of heavy meteorite bombardment of the Earth occurred only when the planet was very  young and entirely molten, so craters were not created

    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.
