TEACHING NOTES AND TIPS. The RCL sedimentary module is planned as a 3-part sequence. (1) The very short powerpoint Rupturing Continental Lithosphere: Introduction (from Dorsey 2013) is the starting point*. It will give students a preview of the scientific.
Quantitative textural and microstructural study of orthogneiss deformed at increasing metamorphic grade: contributioon of solid state annealing to metamorphic textures. Pavla Stipska, Ondrej Lexa Karel Schulamann.
1. Detailed sample description and background. The majority of the xenoliths in this study can be classified into one of two groups, commonly referred to as Groups I and II (Frey and Prinz, 1978). Menzies (1983) refined the classification but referred.
Instructor s Notes for Stratigraphy CogSketch geoscience worksheet. This worksheet uses the sketch-understanding program with built-in tutor: CogSketch. Therefore, students, instructors, and/or institution computer labs need to download the program from.
Columbian Exchange ProjectName. Guided Reading. 1. How many miles separate America and Europe? 2. How many years passed between the break up of Pangaea and the time humans (Homo Sapiens) arrived in the Americas?
Blue Mountain Plateaus. Plateaus in the Pacific Northwest are predominantly underlain by stacked flows of the Columbia River Basalts and form extensive elevated plains bounded on one or more sides by steep slopes hundreds of feet above adjoining areas.
Measurements of Velocities and Elastic Properties at High Pressures and Temperatures. The best-resolved properties of Earth s interior are the sound velocities Vp and Vs, and the density. Beyond average radial properties, seismological studies now reveal.
Source: Panorama of Landforms, NASA. In this lesson, you will also study the factors that change these landforms called physical processes. Some landforms are created by the action of wind, water, and ice. These physical processes change the Earth's surface.
Chapter 2 Earth Systems: Processes and Interactions. 2.1 The Solid Earth System: Components and Processes. Earth s interior consists of crust, mantle and core; the crust and the uppermost. mantle together constitute the lithosphere.
At this point you should have a good understanding of the rock cycle, the 3 main classifications of rocks (sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous) and the forces/processes that change them. You should also have a basic understanding of the characteristics.

Earth ScienceStudy Guide Plate Tectonics & Earthquakes. The Theory of Continental Drift. Francis Bacon (1620) proposed that the continents once fit together. Alfred Wegener (1912), a German meteorologist, came up with The Theory of Continental Drift which stated that.
I.Course Description. Introduction to Geology I (physical geology) is a study of geologic processes and features with emphasis on plate tectonics. Topics include the origin of magma, volcanoes, earthquakes, weathering, sediments, metamorphism, rivers.
