The west beach at Manchester State Park consists of roughly 200m of exposed outcrops with well bedded strata of consisting of the Blakeley formation, of Oligocene age, and poorly consolidated beds of Quaternary age. The northern boundary of the area of interest begins at the southern edge of Middle Point and area terminates at Clam Bay to the south.
After we went in three different field trips, Red rocks park, North Table Mountain and Bob weimer trail. I realized that Golden is place for many geological history. In each field trip, I got to know more about the city and how those mountains came into being. In this geological history, I will mention the formation of the rocks from oldest to youngest.
The purpose of this paper is to compare the angular basalt cobbles lining the paved trails at Hell’s Half Acre with samples taken from the basalt flow at the same location in order to determine if the cobbles are from the surrounding lava flow. A trip was made to Hell’s Half Acre where observations were recorded and three samples of both the basalt from the trail and the flow were collected to visually compare physical and mineral properties. The study area is a unit of relatively young Quaternary lava flows found on the Snake River Plain known as Hell’s Half Acre. Trails through the lava flow are located at the Blackfoot Rest Area on I-15 in southeastern Idaho between Blackfoot, Idaho and Idaho Falls, Idaho. All observations were made and samples collected from the trails at the northbound rest area.

1. Minerals have a few distinguishing characteristics that differ them from other materials. One of the biggest characteristic that minerals poses is they are naturally occurring, inorganic element or compound. Another is the hardness of the mineral. Minerals also have the characteristics of very different cleavage shapes. This is because minerals are easy to fracture. They also poses a crystalline structure. Rocks are a mixture of minerals, whereas minerals are their own purest form. Rocks also do not have crystalline structure. Rocks also can include fossils where minerals cannot. Minerals colors are generally the same. Rocks vary in color.
1. Inner Core: The inner core lays in the middle and is the warmest area of the earth. It is rock-hard and contains iron and nickel, with hotness of up to 5,500°c. It has a radius of approximately 1,220 km. 2. Core: The core is the layer around the inner core. It’s a liquefied layer,
The Cretaceous Period, spanning 65.5-146 million years ago (Mya), was a world different from what we are familiar with today. Planetary changes during this period included the extinction of dinosaurs and drastic global warming. The breakup of the super continent Pangea had started about 30 Mya, and seaways had begun to form and cover landmass that had once been a part of the super continent (Geologic Time). Today, scientists know that one of these landmasses, the North American continent as we now know it, was at one point covered by a vast inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway. The Seaway stretched from the Arctic Circle down to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and spanned most of the continent. This paper will

He believes as many due that nonrenewable resources are harmful to all aspects of life. The energy we use now is harmful to our planet, to humans, and to animals. Scientists are taking steps to making the world a better place. They found sources that replenished naturally in a short amount of time and are less destructive in all aspects. Due to these issues, renewable resources should become our primary source of energy.
