Week 1 Review Questions

Chapter 1

|3.  |How do you think the principle of uniformitarianism accounts for occasional catastrophic events such as meteorite impacts, huge |
| |volcanic eruptions, or great earthquakes? |
| | |
| |A Scottish geologists named James Hutton gave geology the name uniformitarianism. Uniformitarianism is the study of rock formations |
| |structure, and the distinctive patterns. Sand dunes near Yuma Arizona contains ...view middle of the document...

  |In this chapter we have suggested that Earth is a close approximation of a natural closed system, and we have hinted at some of the |
| |ways that living in a closed system affects each of us. Can you think of some other ways? |
| | |
| |One big example that I can think of is the effect of pollution on the earth. When the water is pollute, it effects the sea life. |
| |When humans eat the seafood, then it effects humans. Everything that happens in one system of the earth can affect the others. One |
| |other example is that the Earth takes in energy from the Sun, but very little matter enters or leaves the Earths systems. |

|5.   |In what ways do geologic processes affect your daily life? |
| | |
| |The geologic processes affect our daily lives with the change in temperatures and atmospheres. The temperature affects our daily |
| |lives every day by the temperature outside. We can predict what we need to wear based on the current day’s temperature. The |
| |location of various oceans and of the continents have changed over time and will continue to change at a very slow rate. |

Chapter 2

|1. |When astronauts brought back rock samples from the Moon, the minerals present were mostly the same as those found on Earth. Can you |
|  |think of reasons this might be so? Would you expect minerals on Mars or Venus to be the same, or at least very similar, to those on |
| |Earth? |

I believe that it is possible that the earth and moon were formed around the same time therefore, they would be similar because they have similar materials. The other planets near earth they probably have similar variables but since one is too cold and one is to hot it would make a big difference in the substance of many materials. I would think that Mars and Venus would have the same minerals as earth also.
