How could this GIS tool be used by architects and construction managers? 

Site : https://www.esri.com/en-us/home

o 3 page minimum

o Include an introductory and conclusion paragraph

o APA format- include sources if necessary

o Write a summary of your day at the conference with details about:

o 1 lecture ▪ What is the title of the lecture session?

▪ What were the topics discussed?

▪ How were they using GIS to solve the problem?

o 1 technical workshop

▪ What was the title of the workshop?

▪ Which GIS concepts were discussed? 2

▪ How could this GIS tool be used by architects and construction managers?

o Map Gallery (choose three interesting maps to discuss)

▪ What are the titles of the maps?

▪ What are the problems that they are trying to examine?

▪ What types of analysis did….

research a topic of your own choice, which is consistent with the course objectives (i.e. applying GIS to solve a potential problem in an area of science).

This project will develop your skills in independent research planning and implementation. These skills are important for careers within industry or academia (i.e. honours or PhD). Project design, proposal and report writing are all things you will be faced with in the near future, and having hands-on experience dealing with them will put you ahead of many other graduates. It can be a huge shock going from the clearly prescribed assignments and assessments you commonly get at university, to having to think of a project yourself, or think of a way to deal with an issue one your own. This assignment is designed to be challenging, as it will be something you have not had a lot of experience with, but it will help you in the future…..

Give the reference where you obtained the current event article.

Find an article that deals with economic impact from Subsaharan Africa to the rest of the world.

You will have a Current Event assignment this week. Your review of the Current Event should be submitted as a Word document attached to the Current Event assignment tool. Your total write up and explanation should be approximately 300 words. Each current event posting should include the following:

1. Give the reference where you obtained the current event article.

2. Give a brief review of the article as it was written by the author.

How does your prior education (and experience) prepare you for a graduate work in Planning?

Master of Science  in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Integrated Petroleum Geoscience.

In a written statement, no more than 500 words, please respond to the following questions.

  How does your prior education (and experience) prepare you for a graduate work in Planning? Note: I studied Environmental science and chemical engineering   what are your career objectives? and how does this degree program above relate to them?   What research interests may you wish to pursue in your Master’s Research Paper?

research online for a photo to show the rock in it’s natural setting. Paste the photo on your write up sheet.

For write ups use the sheets that are provided in the file!!! Use the same write-up sheets (6) Download Rock Project Photos (from here) RockProject Photos.docx  choose six rocks to represent 3 different rock types and 3 different subtypes. Copy and paste photo to each write-up sheet. For the second photo on each write-up sheet, research online for a photo to show the rock in it’s natural setting. Paste the photo on your write up sheet. In place of ” where was the sample collected?”:  Write the location of where the researched photo was taken.  Include the website reference (URL address) for the photo.

Describe the hazards associated with a volcanic eruption from your group’s volcano

3.  You should research and post on the following:

Background Location- State and county, latitude/longitude (degrees), peak elevation, include a location map and satellite imagery Volcano type and composition Size of volcano—area, volume, etc. Volcanic Hazards Describe the hazards associated with a volcanic eruption from your group’s volcano What population may be or has been affected by volcanic hazards from your volcano? Briefly describe an historic eruption if appropriate Positives How do population centers near this volcano benefit from being located near/adjacent to the volcano? If no population centers exist near your volcano…speculate how they would benefit

In addition, please develop 2-3 questions for another classmate to answer related to the volcanic event you described.

Mauna Loa Hawaii is what I chose

Plate Tectonics PhET

Learning Objectives:

 I can describe the differences between continental and oceanic crust.

 I can identify and describe the three types of plate boundaries .

 I can describe the geologic features created by each type of plate boundary.

Go to www.phet.colorado.edu. Click on the orange “Play With Sims” button. On the right side

of the screen, choose the “Earth Science” category. Run the “Plate Tectonics simulation.

Part I:

1. Begin with the “Crust” tab. Under “View,” check “Both” and “Show Labels.” Use the tools in the lower left corner to qualitatively compare the thickness, density, and

temperature of the oceanic and continental crust….

As a species, are humans going down and will become extinct?

Scientists are telling us that Human Civilization may be coming down – collapsing – because people are obliterating Earth’s environments and its natural resources.  Humans, even if they are lawyers or doctors, may know too little about Earth and this ignorance creates a problem.  Scientists are now informing the world about the sixth mass extinction, sea level rise, climate change, deforestation, coral reef bleaching, water and air pollution, acid rains, soil erosion, urban sprawling, ocean acidification, spreading fires, melting ice sheets, desertification, species extinction, toxification of soils, microplastics inside all human bodies, etc. etc. etc. (the list goes on and on).  As a species, are humans going down and will become extinct?  Are all of these studies and predictions true or are all of these just scientific exaggerations?  Do you think we humans are really….
