Purpose The purpose of this research project was to find out how each of these rocks break down with the addition of the water cycle as well as temperature changes. My parents graciously took me to Penn’s cave, noticing the karst topography, I was fascinating how things can come apart then come back together to be created. It was fascinating to see the creation process and the pressure from the precipitation and the climate it outs pressure onto the rocks in our environment with taking 80 rocks and exposed them to multiple cycles of freezing and thawing with the addition of water in the freezing. Also, at the end of the freeze and thaw process, I placed the rocks out at room temperature to dry them out then I placed them into the oven to dry them out completely. Hypothesis The researcher’s hypothesis is the granite will break down the least amount …show more content…
2.) The researcher must label all of the 80 cups with the type of rock and what number rock it is, for example, Corundum 1. 3.) After labeling the cups the researcher must fill each cup will approximately 1.10 milliliters of tap water. 4.) Place each rock in the water in the cup. 5.) Carefully place each cup of water onto the tray and place in freezer with a temperature less than or equal to 0˚ C. 6.) Let water around rock freeze 7.) Take out rocks and let them unfreeze 8.) Repeat steps 5-7 25 times. 9.) Take rocks out of water and set to dry out on paper towels. 10.) Once dry, measure the mass of each rock (or the largest piece) on the balance once more for the final mass. 11.) Last, calculate the percentage off the rock from the

This cave is located 1000 feet underground and contains many of the largest natural gypsum crystals in the world (2). These pillars of selenite gypsum measure up to 50 feet long and 4 feet in diameter (1). These crystals were able to form in such huge quantities because the area was submerged in water that was rich in minerals as well as having a high stable temperature of 136 degrees Fahrenheit (2). The water had an abundant amount of anhydrite and, because of this environment, it dissolved into gypsum and formed these massive crystals (2). The water has since drained out of the caves and the air in the caves normally stays between 45 and 50 degrees Celsius and the humidity levels range from 90 to 100 percent (3).
Get an entire package of Pop Rocks into a balloon. You might be able to pour the candies into the balloon 's mouth, but you could use a small funnel. Place the narrow end of the funnel into the mouth of the balloon and empty the Pop Rocks packet into the funnel. Make sure all the candies are in the balloon by giving the funnel a few firm taps. Place the balloon over the mouth of a bottle of soda.
Rock Point camp is beautiful place. A white shelled yellow sandy beach taking up most of the camp. This beach has sparkling dark blue water, swaying back and forth with force carrying dark green soft seaweed with it. There is a fossil area on the corner of the beach, massive flat rocks with animals engraved into its grayness, you will see scaly orange fish with only sockets and no eyes laying on these rocks with fly’s hovering over them in circles, as if they are guarding the dead corpses of the fish. Once you get off the beach you will see a large green forest filled with muddy trails going in many directions.
They compared 230 obsidian hydration readings from thirty individual site components with independent age estimates based on temporally diagnostic artifacts and radiocarbon dates. In this study, they found that obsidian hydration dating is a very accurate tool for determining the age of an object. The hydration age estimates were an average of fifteen percent within the radiocarbon
The rocks do not show signs of heavy weathering. There is some white staining visible, but there is very little red or brown staining. The rocks have abundant vesicles. There is a mix of rocks with varying sizes and numbers of vesicles. Samples collected were representative of this mix.
This caused the sedimentary rocks to be forced down into a bend. Limestone does not bend very well and causes fractures in the limestone, almost at perfect 90 degree angles. After the limestone fractured, the carbonic acid water moved around what is known as Jewel Cave today, and formed the cave. The water slowly drained from the cave, expelling limestone and created the karst
Marvel At The Great Sand Dunes Hidden Deep In The Rocky Mountains Tucked deep within the majestic rocky mountains is the most unexplainable of natural landmarks. Housing the largest dunes in North America, Great Sand Dunes National Park is the hidden gem among a diverse landscape of forests, grasslands, and the tallest mountains in Colorado. Perfect for both hikers and observers, everyone will marvel at this unique landscape. Stop at the breathtaking scenic overlook Prior to entering Great Sand Dune National Park, in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, you should stop at the entrance of the park and enjoy the first of many scenic overlooks in the area.
How to Order an Ice Cream at Cold Stone Creamery Cold Stone is not the basic ice cream shop that one is used to. Instead of using scoops, Cold Stone uses size portionings. Also, instead of having the ice cream already mixed with things, Cold Stone makes all of their ice cream plain, and the worker adds whatever kind of mix-ins that a customer might want on the “cold stone.” Signature Creations are also something that Cold Stone offers that other ice cream shops do not.
CHAPTER 1 Rocks and Pouches “Today you need to learn how to dive and forage for food,” said Mother. “But before you can catch your food, you need a very important tool, and that’s a rock. Right now we’re in a shallow area of Doe Bay, which has plenty of rocks.
Each process has its ups and downs with its contribution to archeological sites and what lies in those sites. The fluvial process moved artifacts, yet due to strong currents, many sites could have been destroyed and it is impossible to know how many. This location goes to show how weather impacts archaeological sites majorly. Since the weather can uncover and cover potential sites, archaeologists always have to adjust their methods of approach to the sites that they do get to. Some sites will never be discovered due to constant weathering, but they each contribute to the archaeological
The upper lacustrine drift deposit within Glacial Lake Regina consists mainly of highly plastic clay, known as Regina clay, which extends to variable depths depending on the location. The lacustrine deposit occasionally encounters a lower section that is very silty, low plastic, saturated and less stiff than the upper clay. Previous geotechnical studies identified two different layers of the glacial clay till deposits (Christiansen and Schmid 2005). The upper clay till was characterized to be relatively thin, weathered (brown) glacial clay till of the Battleford Formation. However, the lower layer was identified to be unoxidized (grey) glacial clay till of the Floral Formation.
