There were alot of basic facts that for the most part I understood. This took science to an extremely basic level which refreshed my mind on things I had previously learned in other classes.
Originally I did not have much interest in Earth science but this website helped to spark my interest. Two topics that interested me is that the earths rotation is beginning to slow, also the true shape of earth is very interesting.
I originally didnt know what my interests in earth science was, but with help from this website my interest was sparked. My two interests from this website are the Earths true shape and the true age of the Earth.
Energy is essential to life without it we as organisms would not be able to live nearly as efficently as we do know. But with us abusing our fossil fuels we need to find a way to alternatively change our source of energy.
In recent years, there has been a surge in the interest of the manufacturing of biofuels as a replacement for fossil fuels in automobiles. The heavy use of fossil fuels is one of the ways that our generation heavily effects our enviornment and is often forgotten.
This report covers the plateau of Missour but also goes in depth about every single weather condition that can be faced in Missouri. This must be a miserable report to write because of the many conditions seen in our State.
Because of the plateau Missouris basin is very different going high to low. All ready knowing this, it helped me realize why the wind varies from city to city because of the changing altitudes.
This articles provides a brief overview of the properties associated with the atmosphere. The earth is broken into 4 main sections the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere. This is one of the only slides that I have confidence and understanding in.
The Earth is an interacting system of matter and energy which was the main point of this article. The article also mentioned the idea of a tectonic system which was mentioned in yesterdays lab and also by Mrs. T.
On Earth for change to occur there needs to be enegy present. This is similiar to the idea of potential enegy in motion that I learned about in Physics 1st. This is important because it shows that this is similar to other things I have learned just more from the side of chemical change.
The understanding of Geochemical change is simple just by understanding the root of the word. Geo means earth chemical change are changes that happen by rearanging atoms which can most likely be undone. This is important because we did a lab/scavenger hunt which included using roots of words to understand their true definition.
This is an article that explains the main ideas of Science Writing. Science writing is a type of writing that explains technologies of everyday life. This is new to me the closest form of science writing I´ve done is Scientific writing to keep track of data
This course resource explains the importance of Academic writing in the field of Science. This shows that the knowledge we gain from Earth Science will help us later in our education.
Nasa has researched that our ozone is warming at a rate that Earth has never seen. This could be assisted by our use of Ozone damaging products. I chose this because this has been greatly debated in the world of politics and has to do with humans effecting Earth and its habitat.
This website describes all of the animal species our world is filled of. It also covers the harmful affects of humans on animals. This is the 2nd subject we will learn in this class and Im assuming that we will learn how to positively effect Animals
This website fundementally covers the three types of rock in a simple yet effective way. This was helpful for me because we are bound to talk about the three types of rocks in Earth Science.
This link shows images of human like fossils discovered from long ago. I chose this link because the idea of human evolution is interesting to me and fossils will most likely be covered in class.
