Braided stream=A stream that divides into a network of branching and reuniting shallow channels separated by mid-channel bars. This theory states that new seafloor is created by volcanic eruptions at the midoceanic ridge and that this erupted material continuously spreads out convectively and opens and creates the ocean basin. Isobars are lines of equal average air pressure at sea level. A thermometer is used to measure temperature and a hydrometer is used to measure the density of liquids such as in an aquarium tank.

Students place in chronological order cards describing the history of earth’s atmosphere. This side of the mountain will have a humid climate with lots of precipitation. In addition to predicting the weather, atmospheric scientists attempt to identify and interpret climate trends, understand past weather, and analyze today's weather. Despite the fact that in January NASA announced 2014 was likely the warmest year since 1880, it should come as no surprise that the majority wants to cut funding for climate science.

Water Science for Schools - Information on many aspects of water, along with pictures, data, maps, and an interactive center where you can give opinions and test your water knowledge. In order to have an atmosphere, the planet has to have enough gravity to hold on to light atoms like hydrogen and helium and keep them from floating away into space. Additionally, the acceleration of the hydrologic cycle (higher temperatures mean more evaporation and thus more precipitation) may result in more severe weather and extreme conditions.

In the northern hemisphere the earth's rotation causes winds to be deflected to the right. Students may search an atlas for maps that show the distribution of deserts and rain forests and compare those maps with global weather maps. Other natural resources - Students are taught how to describe the natural origin of the materials used to make common objects. The Teacher Resource provides background and suggestions to increase the overall effectiveness of implementing the program across all levels of learners.

Chemical weathering=breakdown or decomposition of a rock that takes place when minerals are changed into different substances. The Science Core Curriculum places emphasis on understanding and using skills. The materials in this chapter introduce and cover oceans. The resultant weather is usually low cloud cover and long duration precipitation, and not much in the way of wind. Request a rigorous, dual-credit geology or earth-science course at the high school level; Participate in discussions about global and local earth-science–related topics that you see in the news; Seek out informal science venues to continue learning about earth-science topics outside school settings.

At a certain cooler temperature (the "dew point") which depends upon the amount of water vapor in the air, the water vapor condenses into tiny, visible water droplets. The warm Gulf Stream current meets the cold Labrador. Identify and communicate sources of unavoidable experimental error. c. Students find earth science particularly fascinating. Continental Crust=Solid, outer layers of the earth, including the rocks of the continents; thick, low density, granitic, and old. The calculations could be used to control a two-axis solar tracker with an appropriate stepper motor and gearing arrangement.

Interactive Weather Information Network - By the National Weather Service. The issue linked above has two articles, Earth Day 2010: Earth Day 40th Anniversary Poster and Posters about Ecology and the Environment Before and During the 1970s. Students will explore the hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere, along with landforms such as mountains, plateaus, and plains. Air mass=A large body of air that has approximately the same temperature and humidity throughout. Weather information and meteorological research are also applied in air-pollution control, agriculture, forestry, air and sea transportation, defense, and the study of possible trends in Earth's climate, such as global warming, droughts, and ozone depletion.

To what extent are storm intensification processes predictable? A squall line is a line of severe thunderstorms that forms along a cold front (Figure 16.17). To bring the GEOS-5 results closer to contemporary numbers, I have added a uniform offset of +32 ppmv, increasing the global mean to 400 ppmv. Absolute dating=A technique that geologists use to assign specific dates to rock formations and geologic events. Include: subject, quantity, name, school address & school's BEDS code.
