Mars has two satellites, unlike Venus who has no natural satellites. Mars’s two satellites are Phobias and Demos, which scientist believed are captured asteroids. Mars was named after the God of War. Interestingly, this is the complete opposite of love, the god that Venus was named after. Mars does not have as many volcanoes as Venus.
Tectonic processes active in the Cascadia subduction zone region include accretion, subduction, deep earthquakes, and active volcanism of the Cascades. This volcanism has included such notable eruptions as Mount Mazama (Crater Lake) about 7,500 years ago, Mount Meager about 2,350 years ago, and Mount St. Helens in 1980. Major cities affected by a disturbance in this subduction zone would include Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia; Seattle, Washington; and Portland, Oregon. The two tectonic plates involved in the subduction process at the convergent fault line are the Juan de Fuca plate and the North American plate. The Juan De Fuca plate being the denser oceanic plate is being subducted under the continental North American plate.
The data and 10,000 pictures it took increased the knowledge of Neptune majorly. Neptune is one of the four “gas giants”. Like Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus, it is composed only of gas. They are a great ball of hydrogen and helium. Neptune is the third largest planet in the Solar System, much smaller than the real giants, Jupiter and Saturn, and only a little bigger than Uranus.
Due to stress they shift and cause the earthquake. that zone is more subject to seismic disasters. Tectonic, volcanic, collapse and explosion, are the four different types of earthquakes. A tectonic earthquake is one that occurs when the earth 's crust breaks due to geological forces on rocks and adjoining plates that cause physical and chemical changes. A volcanic earthquake is when a volcano erupts and shakes the plates.
Close to its moon Triton, Neptune’s has an approximate surface temperature of -210° C and although it has a considerable distance and low power input from the Sun, Neptune has an incredibly active climate. On Neptune, winds are recorded to reach up to 1,500 miles an hour, three times stronger than Jupiter’s and nine times stronger than Earth’s currently making it the fastest terrestrial winds found in our solar system. To complement this, Neptune has two particularly intense storms ordinarily noted as the Great Dark Spot and the Small Dark Spot. The Great Dark Spot was said to be approximately the same size as Earth while the Small Dark Spot (also known as the Dark Spot 2 and the Wizards Eye) was roughly known to be the size of Earth’s moon. These Dark Spots on Neptune are quite similar to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter and usually compared to one another.
Some of it dives into the earth’s interior others thrust upwards this leads to an earthquake. Huge movements cause earth to release lots of energy. Some of the energy takes the form of shock waves, called seismic waves. Shocks radiate from the center of the earthquake. Seismic waves can cause violent shaking.
Chemical Properties: Reaction with air: - When plutonium is exposed to air it begins to oxidise, it forms a yellowish-brown outer coat and begins to tarnish. Soluble in: - Hydrochloric acid Insoluble in: - Nitric acid - Concentrated hydrogen sulfide The Critical Mass: - Around 300 grams which is only about a third of that of Uranium 235 Allotopic Structures: - Plutonium exhibits six forms of crystalline structures. The only form that exists at room temperature is the alpha structure. It has the highest electrical resistivity of any metallic
Our planet, Feuer Leava, is habitable because of its place in the solar system, its atmosphere, and its formation. First, Feuer Leava is the second closest planet to the star, Vega. Vega is the only star in this solar system. It is 2.26 times larger than the sun, 7 times brighter, and approximately 2 times hotter. Feuer Leava does not rotate, so one side is constantly facing the star.
Caroline Burns 159001444 Museum Assignment 2 3) Basalt is an igneous and mafic rock that compromises most of the volcanic rocks. It is dark black and gray colored. It is rough and has an uneven rectangle-box shape. Basalt is from Somerset and is four point two billion years of age. Basalt is mostly composed of augite, plagioclase and olivine.
Volcanoes are formed as mountains that can be deadly. The tornado-like winds and ash from the eruption, opposed to the magma, is the most deadly part of a volcano. These winds are called “pyroclastic flow” and are very powerful that destroy lots. “The pyroclastic flow is similar to strong wind storms called hurricanes”(Lassieur 3). These winds are often the worst kind of destruction that surrounding land can suffer from.
