In the western Pacific, there is low air pressure as warn, moist air rises, cools and condenses, forming rain clouds which give heavy convectional rainfall. This movement of air results from the Walker cell. This circulation of air is where air in the upper atmosphere moves from west to east and surface air moves from east to west, as the trade winds. It causes surface waters in the west to be pushed upwards therefore sea levels in places such as the Philippines is 60cm higher than in Panama or Colombia. Water flowing westwards is warm, 28ºC in the western Pacific whereas the water off the coast of South America is cold, 20ºC.
They were a more isolated human, so when the Europeans came and took over there immune systems were not at all prepared to face and fight back al;l the diseases that came there way. The European diseases were communicable and that therefore caused these illnesses to move faster and to cause death tolls to rise even faster than ever before. In some cases Indians were infected severely before even coming into direct association with the Europeans. The one disease that really got the Indians by the neck was smallpox. This disease killed tens of thousands of Indians in the New World.
It was a very large tribe that extended from the Mississippi River to the Arkansas River. Jen Duluth, a French officer in 1976 started a Gallic Standard near the St. Peter Lake. In 1685, the French divided the tribes into seven eastern tribes and nine western tribes. Wounded Knee took place in Pine Ridge of South Dakota, where the tribe took over the town. On December 29, 1890, the Sioux chief, Big Foot, and 350 0f his followers camped on the banks of the creek.
Si is a perfect example of social mobility through the functionalist theory. Si was drafted into the Army during Vietnam and retired from the Army in 1993. He is now a blue collar worker at his brothers company, Duck Commander, where he carves reeds, for the duck calls by hand. He has published a book and is also a reality TV celebrity on A&E’s "Duck Dynasty" and the Outdoor Channels "Buck Commander". Like most of us, Silas fits into many different subcultures.
The Northwest Coast Environmental Area The Northwest Coast environmental area is a natural region located along the coastline of North America and is close proximity to the Pacific Ocean. It also extends from the Gulf of Alaska in the north to the Oregon-California boarder in the south. The strip of the coast is surrounded by distinctly large mountain ranges; and, with the relatively mild climate, moderate rain forests, and vast marine life, the Northwest Coast is considered a highly inhabited area that has grown a lot over the past few decades. The diversified environment of the Northwest Coast includes many traits which make this area a natural haven for people and animals to live. Some of the many traits of this area include inland rivers and lakes; Douglas fir, hemlock, spruce, cedar, and fir forests; many islands; mountains near the coast; deep fjords; and, a variety of beaches that are wide and narrow.
Each one of these processes plays a role in the Arctic and Antarctica. We’ll discuss each in general and specifically in the polar regions. EROSION Wind, water, and ice are the three agents of erosion, or the carrying away of rock, sediment, and soil. Erosion is distinguished from weathering — the physical or chemical breakdown of the minerals in rock. However, weathering and erosion can happen simultaneously.
Between the Americas and the Pacific islands, small pox, but measles, diphtheria, whooping cough, and influenza took heavy tolls on many people. In the western hemisphere, before the voyages, none of the people acquired or possessed those diseases, but in the eastern hemisphere, they were endemic. When these infectious diseases traveled to unexposed populations, it set-off terrible epidemics that destroyed entire societies. In 1519, the epidemic smallpox took over the Aztec empire. Imported diseases took the worst tolls in less populated areas like the Aztec and Inca empires.
There are two types of pingos open and closed system. Open pingos are formed in valley bottoms, where water is collected from surrounding slopes under the force of gravity. This water then freezes and expands forcing the overlying surface material to dome upwards. This kind of pingo is commonly found in Greenland. However there are other kinds of pingos a good example of which are found in the Mackenzie delta in Canada.
(National Park Service) The next giant monolith is El Capitan. El Capitan was also carved by glaciers in the Ice Age. When fractures in the rock occur parallel to the surface, they are called exfoliation joints or sheet joints. Exfoliation only occurs on granite rocks and it is from many different temperatures. (Shannon Tech) It is about 3,600 feet above the valley floor and about 7,500 feet above the sea level.
The Impact of Europeans colonization in North America on Native Americans When the first colonist began to colonize America, they brought with them many diseases. The diseases were caused by their close living quarters with domesticated animals such as pigs, cows, sheep, goats and horses. When the colonist made first contact with the indigenous people, they unknowingly spread epidemics of smallpox, typhus, influenza, diphtheria, and measles, killing 10 to 20 million, which was up to 90 percent of their population. Sometimes these diseases were purposely spread to the natives in order to easily take over certain territories. For example, during the French and Indian War, British commander and chief Jeffery Amherst suggested using smallpox to wipe out the Native Americans (D'Errico, 2010).
