Assignment Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5) What combination of volatiles and viscosity is the most hazardous? Explain your answer in 2-4 sentences. Q6) Q) What combination of volatiles and viscosity is the most hazardous? Explain your answer in 2-4 sentences. Q7) What is the peak discharge for a 100-yr flood? What is the probability that the 100-yr flood could happen in 2001? Q8) What is the peak discharge for a 100-yr flood? What is the probability that the 100-yr flood could happen in 2001? Q9) The Susquehanna River in Harrisburg has data that goes back to 1892. Following the 1972 Hurricane Agnes flood, the Army Corp of Engineers raised the levees around Harrisburg. Why do you think the USGS only plot data starting in 1975 to compute the 100-yr flood? Q10) In June of 2006 a large flood affected the Mid-Atlantic region. The Susquehanna River in Harrisburg reached the peak discharge of 80,000 cfs. Based on the data set from 1975 to 2000 what was the recurrence time of such a flood? Given this event, compute the new recurrence time for the peak discharge that was the rank 1 flood. How does this compare with your answer to question 8? Q11) What is the difference between Figure 1 and Figure 2? How can you use them to explain the difference between a Natural Hazard and a Natural Disaster? What part of these diagrams is a geographer concerned with and what art is a geologist concerned with? Q12) What is the difference between Figure 1 and Figure 2? How can you use them to explain the difference between a Natural Hazard and a Natural Disaster? What part of these diagrams is a geographer concerned with and what art is a geologist concerned with? Q13) Consider that you live in a 10-year flood plain, what are some examples of mitigation in this scenario? Q14) Choose 1 of the 2 following scenarios and make an Emergency Management Plan based on the four phases of Emergency Management as defined by FEMA (Can also be found in the powerpoints). Scenario 1: You are a city officer in Tampa in October of 2017 just after the devastation of Hurricane Irma. Though Tampa was not hit as badly as other regions in the path of the hurricane, the residents saw that the damage was still bad, leaving parts of Tampa without power or water for 7-10 days. Your new task given to you by the Head of the Office for Emergency Management, is to develop a new Emergency Management plan. Scenario 2: it is 1986, in the aftermath of the Armero tragedy. You work for the Columbia Geological Survey (SGC) and have been paired with a city officer to create a new Emergency Management Plan in light of recent events. This response should be thorough and explicit. Be sure to address all four phases of Emergency Management Q15) Q16) List any 2 events from one of your previous disaster diary entries and describe where and when it happened, as well as the response and recovery efforts. (Be sure to expand upon what you have already gathered, in other words, see if anything has changed since you last wrote about it.) (HInt: You can use this work for your Disaster Diary Summary! So save it where you have access to it!) ...

Hi! Here are those geology questions, let me know if you have any questions!It was great working with you!

B, Low Viscosity, Low Gas
A, High Viscosity, Low Gas
C, High Viscosity, Low Gas
D, High Viscosity, High Gas
When a volcano erupts there are multiple factors that go into the type of eruption
and its severity. The type of eruption that will be most hazardous is one with high
volatility and high viscosity. Generally high volatility is paired with low viscosity but
in this scenario as the gas is released during eruption the viscosity is increased and
the eruption is explosive.

7. The peak discharge for the 100-year flood is about 70,000 cfs. The data values are
for an interval of 25 years. 2001 would be the 26th year. Using the log-log plot most
of the recurrence intervals are in a 10 year period but of the 52 data points only 1
falls between 20-30 years. The probability in 2001 would be 1/52 or 1.92%.
8. The recurrence times for the data from 1975-2000 is given by the equation
Recurrence time = n+1/rank , n=# years on record. The recurrence time is 25+1/1
= 26 years. Looking at the chart there is only 1 data point around this interval so the
probability of it occurring is 1/52 or 1.92% each year.
9. After the Army Corp of Engineers raised the levees the overflow of the river was
changed. The levees are built to prevent overflow so the new data would show that
the river had lower overflow levels compared to the pre 1975 data. This would
suggest water levels were declining when they are not.
10. The recurrence time for such a flood in 2006 using the data from 1975 to 2000 is
calculated using the equation: Recurrence time = n+1/rank ...
