NWS JetStream Learning Lesson: Water Cycle Paper Craft. Overview Water moves from the ground to the atmosphere and then returns to the ground, however, the actual path water takes in its cycle is more complicated.

Adirondack The Adirondack province is an extension of the Canadian Shield, which is the nucleus of North America. Forming most of northern New York, this uplifted complex of Precambrian metamorphic rocks is part of the ancient Grenville Orogeny. The Adirondacks are part of the Appalachian Highlands division which also includes the Appalachian Plateaus, Blue Ridge, New England, Piedmont, St. Lawrence Valley and the Valley and Ridge provinces. There are no National Parks in the Adirondack province. Cuyahoga Valley National Park, OH. Untitled.

IRIS - Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology

What are they? Earth’s interior is broadly grouped into three main layers on the basis of chemical composition: crust, mantle, and core. FISH! Philosophy.

Just south of the Tien Shan mountains, in northwestern Xinjiang province, a remarkable series of ridges dominates the landscape.

Faults in Xinjiang

The highest hills rise up to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) above the adjacent basins, and they are decorated with distinctive red, green, and cream-colored sedimentary rock layers. The colors reflect rocks that formed at different times and in different environments. The red layers near the top of the sequence are Devonian sandstones formed by ancient rivers. The green layers are Silurian sandstones formed in a moderately-deep ocean. Floating Farms. It is fairly straightforward to measure the area of most lakes. Limnic Eruptions: When Lakes Explode. Geysers erupt because they’re all bendy inside. University of California at Berkeley volcanologist Michael Manga and student Esther Adelstein built a laboratory geyser to explain how geysers like Old Faithful work. (Roxanne Makasdjian and Phil Ebiner; additional footage by Eric King and Kristen Fauria/University of California at Berkeley) You'll definitely want to check out the video above, because it features a loop-de-loop lab apparatus designed to spew water into the air.

But it's more than just a twist on one of those science fair volcano models: The UC Berkeley earth sciences professor who designed it says it demonstrates the basic mechanics of geysers like Old Faithful. Fault creep along the Calaveras in Hollister, California. Introduction Hollister, California is located South of the San Francisco Bay area. (Here is a regional map courtesy of Xerox PARC.) In the Bay area there are three major faults, from West to East the San Andreas, the Hayward, and the Calaveras; all are part of the San Andreas fault system.
