    • Trimester 3 Basketball Review Send up a person from your team If you know the answer grab the ball 1 point for a correct answer and a chance for a bonus point for getting the ball through the hoop from the line!
    • Where do most volcanoes on earth occur?
    • • Along tectonic plate boundaries
    • How does silica affect the viscosity of magma?
    • • More silica means high viscosity…which means it is thick and doesn’t flow as easily
    • Which is younger, layer D or intrusion A?
    • • Intrusion A
    • Based on the seismic readings, which location is nearest to the epicenter of the earthquake?
    • • The seismic station in Oregon is closest
    • What are the three types of sedimentary rock?
    • • Chemical • Clastic • Organic
    • What is the relationship between the size of mineral crystals and the cooling rate of an igneous rock?
    • • The slower the magma cools, the larger the crystals
    • Using the graph, how many years will it take 50% of the C-14 to decay?
    • • 5730x2=11,460 years
    • Why is C-14 not used to date objects over 50000 years old?
    • • After 50000 years, there is not enough parent material left to measure
    • The preserved remains of living organisms are called?
    • • Fossils
    • What is the S-P interval of the seismogram?
    • • About 40 seconds (39ish)
    • If the S-P interval of an earthquake is 47 seconds, how far away was the earthquake?
    • • 460 km
    • The order of seismic waves
    • • Primary (P) • Secondary (S) • Surface (L)
    • The oldest rock layer in the picture
    • • Layer I
    • The youngest rock layer in the picture
    • • Layer H (intrusion)
    • What is the difference between magma and lava?
    • • Magma is molten rock underground, while lava is the same thing on the surface.
    • Predict the silica content of magma with low viscosity.
    • • Low viscosity means that the lava would flow easily. This would mean a low silica content.
    • How are the rocks forming at A different from rocks forming at B?
    • • Rocks at A are intrusive, they cool slowly from magma and would have larger mineral crystals • Rocks at B are extrusive, they cool quickly from lava and have smaller mineral crystals
    • Most earthquake hazards are on the West coast. Why do you thing there is an elevated earthquake risk here?
    • • There must be an active fault in the middle of the continent
    • Fossils that are used to pinpoint ranges of time within rock layers and help scientists to correlate layers of rock are known as _______
    • • Index Fossils
    • Which organism would make the best index fossil?
    • • Organism A would be best…it is only found in 1 layer and is abundant and occurs over a large geographic area
    • The process of sequencing rock layers from oldest to youngest based on their position.
    • • Relative dating
    • The type of volcano with steep sides and alternating layers of lava and ash. It has the most violent eruptions
    • • Composite or Stratovolcano
    • This law/principle states that in undisturbed rock layers, each layer is older than the one above it
    • • Principle of Superposition
    • Portions of rock layers that are missing or altered due to erosion and other disturbances are called _______________
    • • Unconformities
    • The type of volcano made of lava flows with gentle sloping sides
    • • Shield volcano
    • Which environment would be least likely to provide conditions for fossil formation? A dried up lava flow A dried up river bed A dried up tar pit A block of glacial ice
    • • A dried up lava flow
    • The intersection of the 3 circles indicate the _____ of an earthquake
    • • epicenter
    • If you are at a seismic station and there are no Swaves detected from an earthquake, what can you assume about the earthquake’s location in relation to where you are?
    • • The earthquake was on the other side of the Earth. The S-waves were stopped by the liquid outer core.
    • Based on the graphic, a Plinian eruption reads what on the VEI scale?
    • • VEI = 8
    • If Mt. Holly erupts with a VEI of 5, how long would you expect there to be between the next eruption?
    • • 100’s of years
    • Name one way a large volcanic eruption could affect one of the spheres
    • • Geosphere – creates new land, ash adds nutrients to soil • Hydrosphere – ash gets into waterways and sediment builds up, gases get incorporated into water cycle causing acid rain • Atmosphere – gases and ash are transported long distances by wind, temperatures may cool as some gases cause the deflection of sunlight • Biosphere – living things are destroyed by many of the hazards, food chains are disrupted
    • Which type of boundary is responsible for the volcanoes in Hawaii?
    • • Hawaii is not on a boundary but is the result of a hot spot.
    • What was most likely the cause of the events in this picture?
    • • This tsunami was most likely caused by a large earthquake under water
    • What type of metamorphic rock has mineral bands aligned in layers as pictured below?
    • • foliated
    • Which type of metamorphic rock requires the most heat and pressure to form?
    • • Gneiss
    • Using the half life of radioactive elements enables you to determine the ______ age of a rock or fossil.
    • • absolute
