Hawaii and Yellowstone can be compared and contrasted in many ways. Yellowstone and Hawaii are great places to have a vacation with your family. What people don't know is that there are standing on super volcanos that could erupt at anytime. Giant chambers of molten lava just 8 kilometers below your feet. One time your enjoying the nature, next nature takes its toll and magma rushing up from the ground.
On August 6, 1945 the United States dropped an Atomic bomb called the Little Boy on Hiroshima in Japan. A few days later the united states dropped another atomic bomb called the Fat man on the city of Nagasaki. The dropping of an atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended the wars quickly, as Japan saw the devastating effects it had on their people and country. The decision to drop the bomb was a very hard one to agree on but changed lives for others. There are many pros and cons of the atomic bombs.
With this bomb we have added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production and even more powerful forms are in development.” (Truman 1) By educating the audience, the audience can understand and have more knowledge about why the dropping of the atomic bomb was necessary for society and other countries. By stating repetition and tone, Truman can back up his claim that the atomic bomb saved more lives and shortened the
One cool interesting fact I learned, a signal of an Axial Seamount eruption is that there are thousands of earthquakes within minutes. The other one that I thought was cool was, that researchers want to see how Axial Seamounts can affect humans. I thought that was cool, because people don’t know what volcanoes can do to living
She also tells the reader some facts that a lot of people may not know, such as some information on what happened before the eruption. In the end, Mt. Vesuvius ' eruption was one of the most famous and destructive eruptions in history. Mt. Vesuvius was such a tragic event, because
The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is one of the most controversial events that came out of world war two. This event of speculation should not be, simply because as a modern day society we can not fairly evaluate the situation as if we were there. Though killing many innocent lives the bomb ultimately stopped the war that would have ended even more lives. The bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki should have been dropped because the bombing of these cities caused the political and militaristic changes and because of these changes, the United States benefited greatly. At the end of the war, devastating bombs were dropped on the two unsuspecting cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Subduction zones can create beautiful landscapes such as mountains; however, they are also dangerous regions. Subduction zones occur because one of the plates that collide with other, in convergent plate boundaries, is of higher density. Hence it sinks into the earth back to the mantle (lecture 3, slide 24-26). When such phenomenon occurs, natural hazards such as earthquakes or tsunamis would occur, making these regions dangerous. Nevertheless, it does not limit traveling.
Hydraulic Fracking is a process of using miniature earthquakes inside of bedrock, to extract natural gases through the cracks it creates in the ground. While effective for removing our abundance of natural gas we carry underground in the United States, we did not start using this method until the mid 2000s. However a problem emerged from this genius idea of blowing natural fuel from the ground, a major problem that causes thousands of people unexplained water damage. Fracking has created a great deal of job opportunities, and created local investments in the area, what they didn’t foresee was the damage it would cause to the ecosystem, and more specifically the water around the fracking towers (Green Gazelle). When fracking takes place around a neighboring city, the water used by the residence becomes corrupted, brown, flammable and horrid to smell, but somehow is still safe.
Out of all minerals in the world, I believe Pyrite is an important mineral that is pertinent to the everyday life of mankind. “The name "pyrite" is after the Greek "pyr" meaning fire. This name was given because pyrite can be used to create the sparks needed for starting a fire if it is struck against metal or another hard material ”(King). Pyrite also contains a unique physical quality that amplifies its use. Pyrite, commonly known as Fools Gold has provided emotional strength, healing, industrial benefits, and its role in human history has proven significant.
And all of these things were enough signs but the death of two bathers gave Harry his very conclusion. Typically water once more will gain chemicals and minerals causing the water to be super-heated or acidic from minerals, and in this instance it heated enough to boil two people alive. E. How did Harry know when the last eruption of Dante’s peak was when he picked up a rock? Harry did know and concluded when the last eruption of Dante’s peak when picked up a rock by understanding cross section of a volcano. They can determine how often a volcano “usually” erupts by dating each of these layers using a variety of methods.
