GREAT SALT LAKE: Great Salt Lake we all know is the largest natural river located in the West of Mississippi River. It is approximately 75 miles long and about 35 miles wide. How did the Great Salt Lake originated? Initially Great Salt Lake is a part of Lake Bonneville. Lake Bonneville is a great ice age lake that rose dramatically from a small saline lake 30,000 years ago.
It has many lakes with countless different species and is sure to satisfy your quest. Some of these giants include Lake Gogebic and Lake Boa. Lake Michigan is however the most widely sort after lakes for ice fishing not only in Michigan but all of America. It borders Michigan, Illinois and parts of Indiana and Wisconsin Wisconsin One would describe it as a giant in the industry as it has very huge and productive lakes such as Puckawa, Delavan, Thunder & Pioneer, Miller Dam Flowage, Nelson, Winnebago and Chequamegon. Ice safety here, over the years, has been greatly enhanced and you are sure to find a wide variety of species underneath just waiting to pounce on your bait.
In 1779 Sir Alexander Mackenzie (Fur trader and explorer) reaches Canada. Mackenzie was one of the first European explorer to cross North America. He had a lot of part in the North West Company with trading. Later in his life Mackenzie would go on to do many things one being his trips to the oceans in 1789 he made it to the Arctic Ocean and in 1793 he made to the Pacific Ocean. Mackenzie also wrote a book called “Voyages from Montreal to the Frozen and Pacific Oceans”.
Sirmilik National Park is located in northeastern Nunavut and is one of the most isolated, yet marvelous national parks in Canada. It was officially established in 1999 and holds on to 22,250km2 of land. To begin, the word “sirmilik” means “place of glaciers” in Inuktitut. One form of these glaciers are cirque glaciers (bowl-like carves). They have influenced the mountainous areas of this park.
Eric Niderost's article, "The Frontier Fleet", describes the phenomenon of Oliver Hazard Perry's naval fleet. Niderost supports his claim by giving the dates of before and the process of the building of the naval fleet and the date and details of the Battle of Lake Erie the Perry's fleet participated
The article that I decided to research and write about is called “Rusty Waters”, written by Rob Raiswell. This paper discusses that the Greenland Ice Sheet plays an important role in how the North Atlantic Ocean receives iron and how this iron can be utilized by phytoplankton. The scientists came up with this idea through a series of tests, observations and critical thinking. Using different samples of meltwater from glaciers in the Greenland ice sheet, they determined the amount of iron available for plankton. Next they followed the path of the meltwater and used critical thinking by considering different factors that could increase or decrease the iron content.
The Yup'ik culture is believed to have formed in eastern Siberia about ten-thousand years ago, then about three-thousand years ago they began to settle along the coast of Alaska. Around 1400 A.D., they migrated up the coastal rivers, settling by the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers. This is completely different than the Aboriginal origins, being on the opposite side of the world with different climates and conditions. Aboriginal culture is much older than Yup'ik culture. Thought to have originated thirty-thousand to forty five-thousand years ago, it is even possible that it began up to sixty-thousand years ago!
Lab Write-Up The Sacramento River, a meandering river located in Northern California, appears to have changed significantly from 1998 to present day. The winding curves of the river were much more pronounced and dramatic until erosion and decomposition affected the sediment amount in the river, changing its shape. As it flows, it deposits sediment on banks that lie on the insides of curves (point bar deposits), and erode the banks on the outside of curves. The low, crescent-shaped deposit of sediment on the inside of a meander is a point bar, which is spotted several times in the river. It is a feature of erosion that shapes the river into its current form.
One of the world’s strangest enigmas surrounds Loch Ness centered in the Scottish Highlands. In the early beginnings of Scotland, Loch Ness was formed when the Earth’s crust drastically changed,and made about 31,000 lakes in present day Scotland, due the Great Glen fault (Redfern 117). The Loch, located near the famous Urquhart Castle, is approximately 20 miles long and almost a mile wide and more than 755 feet deep (Redfern 117). Another aspect to Loch Ness was that the water was cold and contained silt because it was once apart of the North Sea (Schach 10-11). According to Kallen, the legend is said to begin in 565 A.D. when St. Columba of Iona, an Irish poet and Clergyman, noticed some Scottish picts upon arriving.
Colorado national monument wasn’t named after the state, but is was rather named after the Colorado river (FRUITA). This river covers large distances of rock formation and canyons, which hare demolished. As visitor’s come across these formations they shall spot a canyon called the Grand Junction. Coming across the rocks you would see that they are presented in variety of colors. Enlarged westward for nearly 200 miles to the Manti-la-sal Mountains of central Utah.
Chapter 8 Glaciers Shape The Land: The ice age is explored by the author in this chapter and he explains, how glaciers shaped geography. The strategies and tactics of warfare in different geographical land structure and elevation are explained by the author. Winters brought an example of the Alps mountain in WWI and its advantages for the warriors. He also writes on how glaciers shape the land in the different part of the world, such as the formation of the Baltic sea and great lake. According to the author, the earth has experienced many glaciations throughout its creation.
Before Minnesota was Minnesota, this land was inhabited by Native Americans, specifically the Dakota, Ojibwe, and the Ho-Chunk. In time, the European settlers started to move into Minnesota, drastically changing the course of history. Although there is a long history before this point, this book will begin telling Minnesota’s history starting at this point in time. Throughout this book, five themes
Mni Sota, micoke – Dakota translation as ‘home of the cloud tinted waters’, Minnesota - Known by North Americans as the ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes’, lies at the northern end of the Mississippi River and the westernmost point of the inland waterway that extends through the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Atlantic Ocean. The Ojibwe and the Dakota were among the Native people who first made this land their home. European settlement in the area began in1820 with the establishment of Fort Snelling. By 1849, Minnesota became a U.S. territory and on May 11, 1858, Minnesota entered the Union of the United States. The settlers flooded in.
