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

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 …

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.

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 …

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.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is …

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. …

Fossils of the first animals are rare because they A. had hard shells that broke down easily, leaving no trace. B. were large and likely to be eaten by others after they died. C. were soft-bodied and tiny, therefore unlikely to fossilize. D. lived only in volcanic regions, and were destroyed by lava flows. Please explain

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 …
