Geology Question

1. Ocean Plastics (100 words)

Watch the short video Midway, a Plastic Island then answer the following questions in a discussion post.

1. How does plastic end up at remote Midway Island? What are microplastics? How have plastics become a component of the beach sand on Midway Island?

2. How are the threatened Laysan Albatross populations being affected by plastic? What about the Endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal? How does the ingestion of plastic by marine organisms, such as fish, have an impact on human food (think Sushi)?

3. With the recent press on banning plastic straws at restaurants, the bigger problem of single-use plastic waste is evident. List three other suggestions that a college student can do to help reduce the amount of plastic waste in the ocean.

4. Opinion: What do you think is the flip side of the plastic waste argument? For example, do you think people and business owners have the right to use and sell plastics for convenience or do you think that banning plastics is the correct solution to this problem

Geology Question

Tour the geology of San Francisco Bay

The link below is for a virtual field trip of the San Francisco bay area. This possible extra credit would be best for someone who is already at least somewhat familiar with the Bay Area. There are 27 short videos, each one about 2 to 3 minutes long.

After watching all the videos, write an essay. Add material from your book, and (if applicable) your own experience. Don’t forget to follow the instructions on the syllabus.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7Ihm2Mh3MZ6rWKTOTpFBV7WxYuBhcCo9

It’s an essay about 3 pages long. Very detailed Step 2: Using the notes you took, write an essay about what you learned while participating in the educational activity. Remember that your essay should be about what you learned. The best essays will combine material learned in class with what you learned during your extra credit activity. Write an essay that will prove to me that you really deserve an A. Don’t bother doing anything less.

Your essay must include these things:


    • Your name, in the top right-hand corner.

    • A title, but NOT a title page.

    • An introduction that explains what you did for extra credit.

    • A conclusion that wraps up your report, and summarizes what your report said.

    • In between your introduction and conclusion, your report should be well organized into paragraphs. It should explain what you learned, and answer “how” and “why” questions, not just what you observed.
    • See also the .Extra Credit Grading
    • The table below summarizes how I will grade the extra credit essays. Please use it as a guide, as you write your essays. It will help you with the extra credit, and also with any other essays for this class and your other classes.

Messy, ragged edges, etc.

Geology Question

As for lab 12, I have uploaded videos explaining the lab along with the lab chapter which has the lab questions dispersed throughout it. I estimate that this lab will take the average student a couple hours to complete. If you are having any trouble with this lab or would like for me to check your work, please feel free to email me or come see me during office hours. I do anticipate that one question where you will need to draw a drainage basin could be tricky and if that is the case, please communicate with me so that I can help you as well as so I know how many students are having difficulty with that question.

Lab 13 is on mineral resources and mining. In the lab 13 folder, you will find the usual videos along with the worksheet and lab chapter. The first part of the lab involves specimen identification and the information for each specific specimen is found on the worksheet. The second part also has critical information on the worksheet that you will need to answer those questions. The last part of the lab are some questions that require you to make some calculations to answer them. The information you need to answer those questions is found in the lab chapter.

Other than that, there are a couple other things to let you know about. First is that I have an online teaching styles survey posted at the bottom of the labs tab. This is something that I made to get your feedback as to your preferences on how you like to be taught in an online setting. This survey is only four questions long and should take you only a few minutes to complete. I do not have access to individual feedback on this survey and instead, I can only see the data in aggregate so please feel free to be as honest as you would like with this. I also will not be looking at the results until the later July/early August. Now since Blackboard will let me know who has completed this survey, I am willing to give an incentive of 25 points, which is the equivalent of a quarter of a lab, for you to take the survey.

Geology Question

you will be covering the topics of mass wasting & erosion (lab 6), sedimentary rocks (lab 7), and metamorphic rocks (lab 8). The questions for lab 6 are located throughout the lab chapter that is posted on Blackboard. Watch the videos that I have posted and read through the lab chapter to get the information to be able to answer the questions for this week’s lab. I have also noted in one of the videos that you do not need to do exercise 2 in this week’s lab since that requires equipment that I do not currently have access to. I anticipate that this lab will take the average student around two hours to complete so please make sure to give yourself enough time to finish the lab without rushing. Lab 6 is only 25 questions long and when you do the math, each question comes out to 4% of this week’s lab score. What this means is that even if you miss a few questions, your score for lab 6 will drop quickly. So please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you are not sure about the material for this lab and I will be glad to help you. I am also willing to go over your lab to make sure if you are on the right track with your answers.

Lab 7 is another specimen identification lab, this time with sedimentary rocks. For this lab, you will want to watch the video posted and read the lab chapter before diving into the worksheet. Each specimen on the worksheet has a photo and a description which will lead you to which rock it is so pay close attention to those, especially the description. There are 14 specimens to identify in this lab so this lab will take a while to complete.

Lab 8 yet another specimen identification lab, this time being metamorphic rocks. I have posted a video explaining the lab along with the lab chapter. Use those two resources to answer the questions on the worksheet posted. Each specimen will have a picture along with a description which will lead you to which rock it is. For this lab, there are no repeating rocks so if you identify multiple slates or multiples of any other rock, you will want to go back and look at those specimens again. One more thing to let you know is that for question 20, you are going to be putting those sentences into the sequence they happened in. One thing that usually comes up is that students sometimes put down that the limestone forms after the sea moves away or dries up. Please note that this is not possible since limestone needs to form in an aqueous (water) environment so make sure you have the limestone forming first before the sea is removed.
