The paleo-tectonic maps of retired geologist Ronald Blakey are mesmerizing and impossible to forget once you've seen them.

What Did the Continents Look Like Millions of Years Ago? - Geoff Manaugh & Nicola Twilley

Catalogued on his website Colorado Plateau Geosystems, these maps show the world adrift, its landscapes breaking apart and reconnecting again in entirely new forms, where continents are as temporary as the island chains that regularly smash together to create them, on a timescale where even oceans that exist for tens of millions of years can disappear leaving only the subtlest of geological traces.

With a particular emphasis on North America and the U.S. southwest—where Blakey still lives, in Flagstaff, Arizona—these visually engaging reconstructions of the Earth's distant past show how dynamic a planet we live on, and imply yet more, unrecognizable changes ahead. Holistic Lifestyle Community Blog: Climate Change: Causes and Effects. This post is a discussion of how the climate can change.

Holistic Lifestyle Community Blog: Climate Change: Causes and Effects

For general discussion of the current change in Earth's climate, see post Global Warming: Planet in Peril? "Weather can be hot or cold, dry or wet, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy. Climate is the average weather in a place over a long period of time. Changes in climate may be due to natural forces or from human activities. Today climate changes are happening at an increasingly rapid rate. Your insight into science. From the deep sea vents of the Cayman Trough to the shield volcanoes of the Hawaiian islands, Earth Scientists explore the structures and processes that define our world, the forces that continue to sculpt it, and how these processes have interacted over the last 4.6 billion years of Earth’s history.

Your insight into science

Our Earth science modules introduce how scientists use detailed observations, modeling, and comparative studies to develop their understanding of plate tectonics, the foundational theory of the Earth sciences, as well as biogeochemical cycles, the structure of the Earth and its atmosphere, and rocks and minerals. Biogeochemical cycles. Biogeochemical cycles are pathways for the transport and transformation of matter within four categorical areas that make up planet Earth (biosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and the atmosphere).

Biogeochemical cycles

Source. Biogeochemical cycles are components of the broader cycle that govern the functioning of planet Earth. The Earth is a system open to electromagnetic radiation from the sun and outer space, but is a virtually closed system with regard to matter. Are You suprised ?

Water Weight Conversion. How Much Does a Gallon of Water Weigh? Oddly enough, I am often asked how much a gallon of water weighs.

How Much Does a Gallon of Water Weigh?

I’ve heard guesses anywhere from 5 pounds to 15 pounds. How much does a gallon of water really weigh? The simple answer is that a gallon of water weighs about 8.3 pounds. However, this answer comes with a caveat. Someone trying to be smart with you (or just taking the question literally) may tell you that it’s a trick question that has no answer the way it was asked.

Matter, Energy and Life Fig. 3.1 From a biological point of view, the three most important gases of the lower atmosphere are nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. Fig. 3.2 Water consists of molecules, each of which is formed by two hydrogen atoms bonded to an oxygen atom (H2O). In water vapor, the molecules are separate and independent. Fig. 3.5 The organic molecules making up living organisms are larger and more complex than the inorganic molecules found in the environment.

Fig. 3.3 The atoms of most elements gain or lose one or more electrons, becoming negative (-) or positive (+) ions. Faculty of Science / Current students / Educational resources.
