The Glacier Scour Lakes, are lakes that formed when glacier scrape across the bedrock that is then filled with rain water. As the glacier is moving through the earth it Another type of lake created by glacier is called glacier relict lakes, they are giant lakes that were filled with melted glacier water. One example is Lake Agassiz it was formed when ice sheets retreated scraping across the ground. This method is way that the Great Lakes were formed, when the ice sheets retreats Glacers that are in the alpine reagon can from ice caps, ice fields and cirque, cirques are impressions that are made the mountain. When the glaciers are traped in the cirques they might start to melt and fill the cirque up with water causing a lake to be formed in it place.
This is one reason why global warming was significant to the Inuit people. Secondly, another example is the fresh water is underground due to the fact that the snow was polluted. At 44:18, the video showed how the Inuit people were getting pure water underground. Furthermore, This example shows how the ice on the ground was undrinkable, so they had to dig to find the water. This is another way global warming is significant to the Inuit people.
Many of the economies were based upon the Geography of the region. The land of the New England Colonies was shaped by glaciers. At a point of the Ice Age ice cut through the mountains. With this the glaciers pushed the rocks and soil to the south leaving only a thin layer of rocky dirt. Since the soil was rocky and bad, New England Colonies were not very good for farming.
The Arctic Tundra is located in only four places in the world, Canada, Alaska, Russia, and Greenland. The Arctic Tundra is known for its desert like conditions with much snow and cold weather. The word tundra comes from the from the Finnish word “Tunturia”, which means “treeless land.” This fits, as tundra’s usually have little to no trees/vegetation.The Arctic Tundra is generally a combination between a plant environment and a ice environment. However, whatever life lives in the Arctic Tundra, it is adapted to the climates and harsh conditions of the Arctic Tundra. Longitude - The longitude of the Arctic Tundra in Russia is 70° to 180° East Longitude.
Alpine tundra has a 180-day growing season, and it is usually below freezing at night. The soil here is well-drained, unlike in the arctic. The alpine and arctic tundras have the same plants, but the alpine tundra has tussock grasses, dwarf trees, small-leafed shrubs, and heaths. Animals such as mammals, birds, and insects are located in the alpine tundra and adapt to the altitude. Mammals that can be found in the area are pikas, marmots, mountain goats, sheep, and elk.
Tundra comes from the Finnish word "tunturia", which means a barren land. The ground is permanently frozen 10 inches to 3 feet (25 to 100 cm) down so that trees can 't grow there. The bare and sometimes rocky ground can only support low growing plants like mosses, heaths, and lichen. In the winter it is cold and dark and in the summer, when the snow and the top layer of permafrost melt, it is very soggy and the tundra is covered with marshes, lakes, bogs and streams that breed thousands of insects and attract many migrating
he Great Blizzard of 88 Our natural hazard is blizzards. Blizzards are a severe snowstorm with high winds and low visibility. Blizzards can form when warm air must rise over cold air. There are two ways this can occur when winds pulls cold air toward the equator from the poles and it brings warm air toward the poles from the equator. Cold and warm air brought together forms and precipitation occurs.
Sea ice is important to subsistence hunting for several reasons. In the winter, the thick ice becomes a road for hunters to travel on. In addition, the ice prevents the waves from becoming too strong, making boating easier. Also, animals such as walruses and seals are usually found near ice, which means that hunters do not have to go so far out to find them. However, subsistence hunting on the frozen ocean is becoming harder and more dangerous due to the increase in global temperature.
“Seeing” climate change in the film “Chasing Ice” through the story of glaciers is different than learning about climate change through a book or a news story. It is different because you can not only actually see the melting of the glaciers, but you can also see what happens above the Earth’s surface when below, the tectonic plates are
The first sentence of the short story is: “Early that day the weather turned and the snow was melting into dirty water.” Snow is a great example of symbolism, because snow is pure or it could be cleanliness. But the snow is melting and turning dirty. It is possible that Carver was
