How the use of the renewable resources has changed the use of non-renewable resources.

Select a city or state that is successfully utilizing one of the following renewable resources:

Solar power
Wind power
Geothermal energy
Hydropower

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper on this city’s use of the chosen renewable resource (do not discuss multiple renewable resources) in which you explain:

Your chosen renewable source and what makes it unique
Possible limitations of using your chosen resource
When and how use of the renewable resource was implemented
How the use of the renewable resources has changed the use of non-renewable resources in the region

Format your paper according to APA guidelines.
Please complete by 1500 pst on due date, thank you

Label the major processes of the water cycle concept in the hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere, and geosphere.

  
GEOLOGY 100, PROJECT 5 (Due Week 6)
Prior to answering the following questions make sure you read WEEK 5 Overview and Learning Resources. Also, you are expected to research outside sources from the course Webliography (under Content) and the Internet. Answers must be in APA-style paragraph form with proper APA citations. Graphics may be used to support your answers, but make sure you cite your source below the graphic. 
1) Sketch or diagram “your interpretation” of the “Hydrologic Cycle”. What is the ultimate energy source for the water cycle to function on Earth? Label the major processes of the water cycle concept in the hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere, and geosphere. Use arrows to show the progression of water (H2O) through the cycle.
2) Define and describe the following geologic surface water terms and make sure you give a geologic location example for each term: 
· drainage basin (watershed)
· drainage divide and continental divide
· stream erosion features: water falls, canyon (gorge), and V-shaped valley 
· stream deposition features: stream load, alluvial material (alluvium), flood plain, and river delta.
3) Define “groundwater” and discuss its origin and role in the hydrologic cycle. Then define and describe the following groundwater terms: 
· porosity vs. permeability
· saturated vs. unsaturated zones (also called zone of saturation and zone of aeration)
· water table
· aquifer (describe one in detail)
4) Visit the Virtual Caves website and then describe the geological formation of caves and caverns, with an example of each of the following cave types:
· solution caves 
· sea caves 
· erosional caves 
· lava tube caves
5) View the video at Karst Topography: A Unique and Fragile Environment then discuss in a few paragraphs karst geology, including the origin of the term “karst”, the cave-forming rock types present, and the major karst surface and subsurface features. What is the major geologic hazard associated with karst regions? Choose one karst and/or cavern location in the USA (or other country) and discuss and describe the area, any unique subsurface life, and the human threats to this fragile environment.

   Laboratory Exercise for Plate Tectonics Earthquakes Related to a Hypothetical

  
Laboratory Exercise for Plate Tectonics
Earthquakes Related to a Hypothetical Plate Boundary
Lesson Description
In this exercise we will plot 40 theoretical earthquake events at the juncture of two tectonic plates.  Students will then analyze the pattern of earthquake locations and compare these patterns to possible plate boundaries.
Learning Objectives
Student will learn to recognize the earthquake patterns associated with plate tectonic boundaries.
Step One
Plot the Earthquake Data found in Table #1 onto the Area Map (Figure #1). Feel free to duplicate this map to use as work copies. Place a dot or small circle on the map to represent each earthquake event (epicenter). Next to your earthquake location write the value of the depth at which that earthquake occurred (focus).
Step Two
Using the East-West Crossection (Figure #2) plot the surface location (epicenter) of each earthquake and then, based on the depth related to each earthquake event, plot the earthquake focus. On the crossection trace the top and bottom of the plate based on the earthquake focus depths.
Step Three
Answer the following questions.
Question #1: Does the pattern of deep and intermediate earthquakes indicate a tectonic plate boundary? If so, describe.
Question #2:Â  Is it possible to predict the thickness of this plate? How thick could this plate be? Does this thickness relate to a continental plate or oceanic plate? Oceanic plates are not 100 kilometers thick, discuss what then could account for the apparent thickness of this descending plate?
Question #3:Â  Can a second pattern be found that could be describing the other plate? Describe.

Issues that are considered to be priorities in global health.

In this assignment, you are asked to identify five (5) issues that you consider to be priorities in global health.  These priorities can be any health or health-related conditions (such as disease, mortality rates, risk factors, etc.).  For each priority, define what it is and then provide a description making sure to provide the ‘who, what, when, and where’ information.  Make sure to detail the “time, place, and people” aspects as well as what metrics are used to estimate its impact.  Next, provide a statement as to why this topic is a priority in global health.
Please use the Word document template to write your responses.  Each priority section should be at approximately 250-300 words.
