A Summary of Geological Hazards in Washington State Your project can be either a PowerPoint presentation (minimum 15 slides, you are welcome to exceed that) or a Word document (minimum 1200 words) and should include, at the minimum, information about each of the following topics: – historical earthquakes and earthquake hazards in Washington state – historical tsunami and tsunami hazards in Washington state – historical volcanic activity and volcanic hazards in Washington state – historical floods and flood hazards in Washington state – historical avalanches/landslides and avalanches/landslide hazards in Washington state For each of the above topics, be sure to include information such as: – significant historical events or disasters, with relevant data such as economic damage or fatalities – areas of current and future risk – current steps being taken to mitigate these hazards, including costs and examples Feel free to include all information you feel is pertinent and relevant. You must have a minimum of 8 references for this project. You can use any bibliography/reference format you like, just make sure I can find the source. For PowerPoints, each of the slides should include the following – a relevant and illustrative figure, photo, map, illustration, etc., which is referenced at the end of the presentation – a caption for the all figures which describes what the figure is showing, etc. – 3-5 sentences of text explaining the topic you are discussing PowerPoints will be graded on how thoroughly you research and present the information and how clearly the presentation is to put together for the viewer. While all the special PowerPoint features are very nice and encouraged, do not feel like you are being penalized because you are not a PowerPoint expert. Content, clarity, and thoroughness are what you are being graded on. The thoroughness will be very evident from the amount of information you include and the quality and number of references you choose. For Word documents, you should include a minimum of 6 relevant figures or maps. All figures or maps must include a caption. As the figures may be of varying sizes, the Word document should have a minimum of 1200 words.
(THIS ASSIGNMENT DOES NOT NEED TO BE A PAGE JUST LONG ENOUGH THAT ANSWERED THE QUESTIONS THOROUGHLY) Many planetary scientists consider that the material remaining in the asteroid belt is the remnants of a former planet. There are many theories as to why this planet is in pieces. Two of such ideas are 1) that another large celestial body collided with it and destroyed it, and 2) that the gravity from Jupiter was too strong to allow the planet to appropriately congeal (accrete) and so it remained in fragments. Of these two possibilities (let’s limit it to only these two) which do you think is the most plausible and why? OR is there another explanation you have read about? Sources to use: https://nypost.com/2020/01/09/new-research-finds-jupiter-is-flinging-asteroids-at-earth/?utm_source Though not entirely perfect, there is somewhat of a pattern to the distances of the planets from the Sun. Venus is 1.8 times as far from the Sun as Mercury, and Earth is about 1.4 times as far from the sun as Venus. Mars is 1.5 times farther than Earth. This seems to be a pattern – each planet could be between 1.4 and 1.8 times farther from the sun than its “inside” neighbor. Then comes the problem – Jupiter is 3.4 times farther from the sun than Mars. This is where the pattern falls apart, although some say that the asteroid belt, which is in between Jupiter and Mars, could count as a substitute for a planet.* Then Saturn is 1.8 times farther than Jupiter, Uranus is 2 times farther than Saturn, and Neptune is 1.6 times farther from the Sun than Uranus. There’s no real theory that explains why the planets ended up at the distances they did, so it could also be a complete coincidence that they’re somewhat evenly spaced. However, a good number of meteorites are differentiation, meaning that they have evidence of a core, crust, and mantle type features, which is currently only understood to have happened if a planet formed for long enough for the materials to separate on the inside of the planet by density… which would imply that the gravity was weak enough for a planet to form! What a conundrum!!!!

Option #1: Earth Science Where You Live What does Earth Science reveal about your home place through time? This research paper will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about where you live. In your report, be sure to cover the following topics: The geography of your home place – where it is located on Earth, what the topography is like (major mountains, lakes, etc.), and what surface processes are currently shaping it (rivers, ocean waves, etc.) The plate tectonic setting of your home place – where you are located relative to plate boundaries, and what tectonic processes are active in your region (earthquakes, volcanoes, etc.) The geologic story of your home place – what rocks and minerals are found there, and what stories they tell about how your place has changed over geologic time. (For instance, was it once the site of an ocean or sea? If so, what evidence is there for that, and when did it happen?) The weather and climate of your home place – what the climate is like where you live, what extreme weather your area experiences, what effects of global climate change your place is already experiencing, what the projected impacts of climate change on your home place may be—and what is currently being done, if anything, to address these challenges. Your final paper should meet the following requirements: 6-8 pages in length (does not include title page, reference page, visual elements) 8-10 credible outside sources 4-6 visual elements that contribute to your paper (your own photographs particularly encouraged) Formatted according to the APA guidelines in the CSU Global Writing Center
From this link- https://opengeology.org/historicalgeology/virtual-field-experiences-vfes/vfe-glacier-national-park-montana/ write a report. (Use the link and cite it properly) In your report, cover the following sections: 1. Introduction – Provide the general of what, where, and why. What formation are you studying? Why is it important? Where is it located? Are there any unique properties in the area? 2. Sediments, Rocks, and Features – Describe your area. What sediments or rocks are present? Rock types? Describe the lithology (physical characteristics) of any rocks or outcroppings present. What environment were these rocks formed in? Provide any other details that would allow the reader to fully understand what you’ve seen. 3. History – Provide details on the geologic history of your chosen field experience. What major events occurred in the area that may have caused these features to form? When did the majority of these events occur? Are there any events currently happening that may further affect these features? Describe events from earliest to most recent, and use evidence from the environment to support your timeline. 4. Conclusions – In this final portion, summarize what you have learned. What conclusions have you drawn about these formations? What does this say about the environment the formations are in?
