Chapter 1 Review:
1.What is exponential growth?
2.What is sustainability?
3.Review notes on case studies for freshwater salinization and
nitrogen pollution (e.g. causes and implications)
4.What are residence times, mass balance approaches, pools,
Coastlines and Oceans
About Coastlines and Oceans
Coastal processes are the interaction of
the climate system and the solar
Waves and tides are key processes at
The ocean basin contains features such
as mountains, valley
Deformation mainly occurs near plate
Field observations of deformation
show us how to reconstruct geologic
Deformation includes folding (ductile)
and faulting (brittle) seen in outcrop.
The Climate System
About the Climate System
The study of Earths climate system is
crucial to the well-being of life on Earth.
Consequences of climate system change
include global warming, sea-level rise,
and unfavorable changes in weather
What is a mineral?
homogeneous cant be broken into simpler components
naturally occurring form by natural processes
solid not a liquid or gas; maintains shape indefinitely
inorganic substance contains no organic chemicals
About Clocks in Rocks
Clocks In Rocks
Geologists have uncovered deep time by
studying the clocks in rocks.
These clocks can be used to measure the
duration of geologic processes and cycles
of the Earth system.
The Earth System
Principle of Uniformitarianism
The present is the key to
understanding the past.
Are there exceptions?
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry
and has been widely regarded as a bad move
For project 4, you will write a program that will convert a base 10 integer into a different base (base 2 =
binary, base 8 = octal, or base 16 = hexadecimal). First, prompt the user for an unsigned integer (i.e. not
negative) and only proceed if
