The most prominent feature of ocean topography discovered in the 1960s was: A. seamounts B. volcanic activity at the ocean bottom C. subduction zones D. a mountain ridge which circles the earth

[ad_1]

The western part of South America is a region that is geologically very active. This is due to the boundaries between the South American tectonic plate with the Nazca tectonic plate, and also with the Pacific tectonic plate. Since both, the Nazca and the Pacific plates are oceanic plates, they are heavier, and they subduct below the lighter plate of South America, thus enabling the pressure and temperature from the mantle to come out towards the surface on this boundary lines. This creates lots of earthquakes, as well as volcanic activity.

Think about an igneous rock at the top of a mountain. If this rock went through the whole rock cycle, number the steps that would follow. 1. Step 1 Regolith is dumped into some type of reservoir, usually water, by deposition. 2. Step 2 Metamorphic rock begins to melt back into magma. 3. Step 3 Regolith is transported or eroded by rain or wind. 4. Step 4 Rock is broken down into regolith by weathering. 5. Step 5 Layers deposited begin to compact and cement together to form sedimentary rock. 6. Step 6 Sedimentary rock is buried deeper into the earth’s crust. The intense heat and pressure begins metamorphism and the rock turns into metamorphic rock. 7. Step 7 Magma is resurfaced from volcanic activity, cools, and becomes igneous rock.

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7.

Explanation:

The given steps show that how the rocks are recycled from one form to another form due to certain factors like weathering over geological time scale which was explained by James Hutton and he termed this concept as the rock cycle.

The steps of the rock cycle in sequence according to the question are:

1.  Breakdown of rock by weathering into regolith- step 4

2.  Dumping and deposition of regolith in a reservoir- step  1

3.  Erosion and transportation of regolith by rain or wind- step  3

4. Cementing of the deposited layer to form sedimentary rock- step  5

5. Conversion of sedimentary rock to a metamorphic rock due to intense heat and pressure- step 6

6. Conversion of  metamorphic rocks to magma due to the melting of metamorphic rocks-
step 2

7. Conversion of magma to igneous rocks due to volcanic activities and cooling of magma-  step 7

Therefore sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7 is correct.

Read the summary of “The Beginnings of the Maasai.” In “The Beginnings of the Maasai,” the daughter of the Maasai explains the relationship between the Maasai and their sky god Enkai. She explains how a volcanic eruption sent Enkai and the cattle into the sky. In order to save the cattle, Enkai created a giant tree that allowed them to walk back to earth. Then, Enkai entrusted Neiterkob, the narrator’s father, and his tribe to care for the cattle. As a result, the cattle are sacred to the Maasai, and the Maasai maintain a close connection with Enkai. Is this an effective summary of the story? Yes, because it includes key ideas from the beginning, middle, and end, and it explains the conflict and the resolution. Yes, because it focuses on the details from the beginning, the obstacles from the middle, and the resolution from the end. No, because it is uses too many specific names from the beginning, middle, and end, and it has a vague resolution. No, because it leaves out details from the beginning, the obstacles from the middle, and the resolution from the end.

Volcanic activity creates two main types of deposits that can form igneous rocks. what are those deposits called?

[ad_1]

Natural Forces Affecting the Driver:

1. While the car stops, the person continues moving the way that the car were moving and then hits the obstacle in the car or the person can be thrown out of the vehicle. If the person wears belt, he will stop moving with the vehicle and won’t hit the obstacle.

2. We count approximate kinetic energy using the formula K = v^2. So the vehicle which is moving at 30 mph will have four times less kinetic energy than vehicle which is moving at 60 mph. If they have the same road conditions, the breaking distance will be four times as great for the car moving twice as fast.

3. Kinetic energy depends on object’s mass and velocity and it has direct relationship with the stopping distance. The lesser mass of the vehicle = the lesser kinetic energy and lesser stopping distance. => If both vehicles have the same velocity, then small vehicle has lesser kinetic energy than large vehicle.

4. We know that kinetic energy has this relationship with velocity K = v^2. So the best way to prepare to enter sharp curves in the roadway is to lower the speed. The most appropriate speed is 20-30 mph, but it depends on road conditions and car’s breaks condition.

5. Car crashes can happen with everyone so the best way is to be prepared. First the driver should wear a seatbelt while he’s driving. He should check his tires and breaks condition regularly. And also it’s important to slow down the vehicle while entering sharp curves. Without following these rules, the driver can get catastrophic injuries in a car crash.

Signs, Signals, and Pavement Markings: 

1. It doesn’t matter where you go. All you need is to learn highway code. It’s very different to know the meanings of every road sign. Also, it’s necessary to check your car’s conditions and you should take some spare parts for your car in case of accidents. So wherever you go, it’s important to be prepared.

2. You should stop before crossing and take few minutes to make sure there is no train approaching. If there is no train approaching, you can pass a railroad crossing. If you see approaching train, you should wait until it will pass a railroad crossing.

3. You should stop before the lights and wait to check the traffic movement and signs. Make sure that everything is safe and pass the intersection. Don’t move fast to avoid accidents.

4. Flashing yellow light means that it’s not necessary to stop but you should to pay attention on the traffic movement. So it would be better to yield before the lights and make sure if it’s safe to move. After that you can cross the intersection.

5. The line change means that the lane changes and you can’t cross solid lines. Pay more attention on road marking because it shows how you should behave on the road or highway.

6. As you approach the next exit and  your passengers need to use the restroom and get some food, you should look for green signs which indicate food and rest stops. You should to slow down if you don’t want to skip the sign.

7. When you take the exit ramp off the expressway and merge onto the next road, you see yellow lines dividing the roadway which indicates that there is oncoming traffic and this is a two-way highway.

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

The ecumenical thought of utilizing the trophic level with conventional parasites (fleas, ticks, and tapeworms) Would be that parasites are consumers. A symbiotic-relationship, a procedure enacted to survive. Parasitism is the act of one parasite surviving off of another organism (host). Parasites may affect hosts differently than predators affect prey. While a predatory animal murder copious individuals during its life, a parasite prevails sustenance from an undivided host during a life stage. Similar to omnivores, some parasites can extend their dependencies with their nutrients and prefer multiple trophic levels, not just one.

(Psst, I hope I facilitated you with the explanation. I am moderately atrocious at explicating matters, dismal.)

Multiple choice—

The answer to number two, would be “D”, as “transpiration” is the diametric occurrence to all the other processes. Rather bounteously returning carbon dioxide, it actually holds the carbon dioxide, happening in the stomata, opening itself up to “breathing in” the carbon dioxide, and release oxygen.

The result to number three, would be “D”, as “change of seasons” would not be possible for such things like forests. The alteration would not occur in an antecedently damaged area, for change has been interrupted and requires time to fixate.

The solution to number four, would be “B”, as plant-life occurrences is an augury of a primary succession and that an environment has begun commencement or is now fixated.

What problems can be caused by volcanic eruptions?

[ad_1]

Answers to choose:  housing shortages, overcrowded conditions, pollution

Further detail:

The Industrial Revolution had its beginning in Great Britain, and eventually spread from there.  Once the United States became involved, especially in the “Second Industrial Revolution” years (1870-1914), the size and resources of the country allowed the US to become a bigger industrial power than the nations of Europe.

Industrialization also led to the phenomenon of urbanization — the movement of people away from the rural countryside and into cities.   That led to other issues, like pollution and crime problems in cities.  So sanitation and health measures were enacted, and the first police forces were formed.

The overcrowding conditions also meant poor living conditions in tenements and slums.  The condition of these sorts of neighborhoods was documented by Jacob Riis, a police reporter in New York.  In 1888, Riis took pictures of what life was like in New York City’s slums.  Using his own photos as well as photos gathered from other photographers, Riis began to give lectures titled, “The Other Half: How It Lives and Dies in New York,” in which he would show the pictures on a projection screen and describe for viewers what the situations were like.  He gave his lectures in New York City churches.  In 1989, a magazine article by Riis (based on his lectures) was published in Scribner’s Magazine.  The book version was then published in 1890 as How the Other Half Lives: Studies among the Tenements of New York.  Riis blamed the poor living conditions on greed and neglect from society’s wealthier classes, and called on society to remedy the situation as a moral obligation.

Low Tide Zone: Also called the Lower Littoral Zone. This area is usually under water – it is only exposed when the tide is unusually low. Organisms in this zone are not well adapted to long periods of dryness or to extreme temperatures. Some of the organisms in this area are abalone, anemones, brown seaweed, chitons, crabs, green algae, hydroids, isopods, limpets, mussels, nudibranchs, sculpin, sea cucumber, sea lettuce, sea palms, sea stars, sea urchins, shrimp, snails, sponges, surf grass, tube worms, and whelks. Hope this helps.
