Why is Geneva, NY relatively free of earthquakes and volcanoes and other hazards caused by the
interaction of Earth's crustal plates?
The reason that Geneva New York is relatively free of earthquakes and volcanoes is because
Daisy World II
For my experiment, I sought out to plug in as many variables as I Could with Earth and
apply it to the Daisy world model. I did the experiment at half percentage scale as far as volume
goes in order to make it work within the
Introduction and Objectives- The class will help us understand how different parts and
systems on Earth work together with each other. Earth is something which is a very relevant
topic to everyone who lives on it.
Chapter Overview- The materials on Earth go through cycles in order for the old to be
replaced with the new. Carbon is very important for everything on Earth to function the way that
it does. This chapter is about understanding how car
Chapter Overview- Earth in the last 2.5 million years has experienced ice ages that cover the
Earth entirely in ice. We are between glacial periods and burning of fossil fuels will prolong us
into entering back into a state of snowbal
Chapter Overview- The sun has been getting brighter over time. Despite the fact that the sun
was dimmer billions of years ago, the Earth stayed out of ice ages because there was not as much
oxygen in the atmosphere and the difference
Chapter Overview- over Earths history the biodiversity on it has changed drastically.
Different atmospheric compositions are often linked to causing the change in biodiversity. In the
case of the Dinosaurs it is thought that a meteor
Chapter overview- The elements and systems that we understand today were not
always around. The composition of Earths atmosphere has evolved from a much
different state and many events led up to how we understand it as today.
Chapter Overview- Temperatures in the past 10,000 years have stayed pretty steady considering
the change that has occurred before then. Although climate change is an issue that is a concern
today, the climate has been very stable lead
SAQ chapter 3
Chapter overview- Earth receives its energy from the heat of the sun. The atmosphere is what
allows the Earth to stay at a temperature that can sustain life.
Introduction- The greenhouse effect allows the Earth to stay temperat
SAQ chapter 1
Introduction- The Earth is very old and humans have only been around for a small portion of
its history. Humans are having an impact on the environment around them and have been as long
as they have been around. These impacts m
Chapter Overview- the Cryosphere refers to frozen ice deposits around the globe. The biggest
glaciers are around the poles and the ice has a very high reflective value that affects global
Introduction- The ice sheets on Ea
SAQ chapter 4
Chapter Overview- An important element of determining Earths climate is understanding
how the air around the Earth moves and why. Imbalances in regions cause shifts and there are
different energy transfers.
The global circulato
SAQ chapter 2
Chapter overview- This chapter is going to talk about how the systems work together. It is
going to use an example it calls daisyworld which is an imaginary planet in order to demonstrate
how systems would work by themselves re
Chapter overview- Similarly to how the air moves around the atmosphere the water in the
ocean moves. These moves are caused by several different things and can be horizontal or
vertical in movement.
Winds and surface currents- Although
