Similar surface intensities although increasing

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 5 pages.

similar surface intensities, although increasing magnitude can lead to increasing length (in time) of earthquake events. What is the reasoning for the differences in intensities and differences in time? 3. (2 points) In Leon Szeptycki’s lecture, he discussed reasons climate change will affect California’s water resource demand in the future. What are two reasons that demand will increase? Explain how these reasons are caused by climate change. 4. (2 points) In her lecture, Jenny Suckale mentioned that the frequency of earthquakes in Oklahoma is increasing in the shape of a Hockey curve. Use a real-world example given in class (relating to earthquakes, volcanoes, or landslides) to explain one way humans are increasing natural disaster occurrence and/or damages. 5. (2 points) Briefly define the two types of water property rights in California. Prior appropriation: Riparian rights:

Name: _________________________________ TA:_________________________________ Long Answer 1 (7 points) One major challenge that California faces is that its supply and demand for water are mismatched in both time and space . A. (2 points) Using examples, explain how California’s supply and demand for water are spatially mismatched. Why is this a challenge? B. (2 points) Explain how California’s supply and demand for water are temporally mismatched. In your answer be sure to discuss seasonality. C. (1 point) What is one of the two solutions mentioned in lecture that may help address these mismatches? D. (2 points) Climate change has caused a shift in California’s precipitation mix: much of what used to be snow now falls as rain. This trend will likely increase in future years due to increased temperatures earlier in winter seasons.

    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.
