Question description

  • From the first e-Activity ("Meet the Volcanoes") compare and contrast the eruption styles of the Mauna Loa Volcano in Hawaii and Mount Pinatubo in Philippines. Note: Be sure to include a review of the plate tectonic setting, as well as the role of magma composition and viscosity at each location on the morphology of the volcano and eruption style.
  • From the second e-Activity, choose one (1) of the following geologic hazards: earthquake, landslide, or flood. Assess the factors that influence the occurrence of your chosen hazard. Analyze the human role in elevating the risks of occurrence, as well as mitigation strategies to minimize damage and loss of life.
  • Describe how Wegener's continental drift hypothesis has helped to shape modern plate tectonic theory, and why his hypothesis was not widely accepted by his peers when first proposed. Analyze the types of evidence used to support plate tectonic theory.
  • From the third and fourth e-Activities, compare and contrast the mass extinction event at the end of the Permian (~250 Mya) with the mass extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous (~65 Mya). Include a discussion of the causes, the type of life forms impacted, the extent of the extinction, and the probability of a similar event occurring in the future.
