The lake is about 20 miles long and 8 miles wide. Lake levels and size vary because of heavy agricultural use, and in years of drought. The border of Utah and Idaho goes right across the center of the lake. The lake is 250,000 years old and is formed by Fault Subsidence, which continues today making the lake deeper on the East side. Visual of Ecosystem Location: Pictures obtained from (USGS) and (Chpc) 5 biotic (living) components of the Ecosystem * Quaking Aspen * Choke Cherry (Tree) * Moose * Raccoons * Bear Lake Cisco (Fish) Unique to bear lake.
Settlement: Located in the Heart of the Rockies, Salida is surrounded by three mountain ranges: Sangre de Cristo, Mosquito Range, and Collegiate Peaks. Salida was first settled by the Ute Indians. Chaffee County was established in 1879. It was named for Jerome Chaffee, Colorado's first United States Senator. In 1859-60 an unknown explorer went up the Arkansas River and found gold in it’s sand and gravel.
Sacred Destination Paper Brandy Serrano December 22, 2013 HUM 105 Gregory Underwood Sacred Destination Paper El Dorado or the Lost City of Gold as it was called takes place in South America. The legend of El Dorado first originated at Lake Guatavita where it was told that the Muisca king had cover his body in gold dust and dived from a raft into a sacred lake and his people then began throwing gold and precious gems into the lake as a way to worship the Gods. When the Spaniards and Europeans heard of this city they came to South America in hopes to find the gold. The Spaniards and Europeans searched to find El Dorado and drained the lake in hopes to find it but it was never discovered. Many men who search to find this lost city died trying to find it and one of the famous men was Sir Walter Raleigh.
Hydrologic Cycle The elements that combine to make water Hydrogen and oxygen are found in dust, grasses, and other stuff that formed Earth. The molten rock, called magma, which made up early Earth, contains water. Some water escaped from the magma and reaches the Atmosphere. As Earth cooled off, the water was able to settle on the surface and billions of liters later the oceans were formed. (5 points) |Score | | | 2.
Cold Seeps A cold seep (sometimes called a cold vent) is an area of the ocean floor where hydrogen sulfide, methane and other hydrocarbon-rich fluid seepage occurs. Cold seeps are distinct from hydrothermal vents: the former's emissions are of the same temperature as the surrounding seawater, whereas the latter's emissions are super-heated. Cold seeps constitute a biome supporting several endemic species. Cold seeps occur over fissures on the seafloor caused by tectonic activity. Oil and methane "seep" out of those fissures, are diffused by sediment, and emerge over an area several hundred meters wide.
The Hudson River is polluted in many ways. Some issues affecting the river are accidental sewage discharges, urban surface run-offs, heavy metals, furans, dixons, and pesticides. But the main problem affecting the Hudson River is the discharge of PCB (Polychlorinated biphenyl's). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made claims agains General Electic Corporations claiming that they had discharged 209,000-1.2 billion pounds of PCB from their two manufacturing plants located in Hudson Falls and Fort Edward. They claim that this has been going on for 30 years.
Water is a powerful source. It causes erosion or more specifically runoff. The source of a river may come from a mountain. When it rains on the mountains it may create a stream, then later into a river. It turns into a river because of all the water the mountains have and then creates a path.
Mann Gulch Fire On August 5th, 1949 what was thought to be a routine day in the lives of 16 smokejumpers, will be remembered within the U.S. Forest service as well as firefighting history. The Mann Gulch fire occurred in Montana’s Helena National Forest, and prior to this incident, no smokejumper had ever died fighting a wildland fire. The fire, which was caused by lightning strike, was originally spotted at 12:25 pm. Due to the remote location and lack of roads; smokejumpers were dispatched to the incident. Forman Wagner (Wag) Dodge and his crew made their jump a few hours after the call.
Mud volcanoes, sometimes called ‘sedimentary’ or ‘gas-oil’ volcanoes, are an interesting natural phenomena that occur around the world generally along points of weakness in the Earth’s crust such as fault lines. They act as pressure valves to release gases, mineral water and sometimes traces of oil along with mud also known as breccia from as deep as 10-12 km below the earth’s surface. The size of mud volcanoes very dramatically from 1 to 2 metres to up to 700 metres high; and from centimetres to kilometers wide. Correlations have been found between earthquakes and mud volcano activity particularly if there is a major earthquake. This would explain why the island (thought to be due to a mud volcano) appeared off the coast of Pakistan this fall at about the same time as the large earthquake.
Tattoos and piercings date back to early man. According to Etyonline, an online etymology dictionary, the word tattoo is derived from the Tahitian and Samoan word tatau and the Marquesan tatu, both of which mean puncture, mark made on the skin. The oldest recorded tattoos are believed to be from about 3300 B.C. They were found on the body of the Iceman found in the Otzal Alps in 1991. Professor Konrad Spindler of the Innsbruck University theorized that the Iceman’s 57 tattoos were probably done with charcoal and were possibly done for ornamental, magical, or maybe even social status.
