In this lab you will use topographic maps and online satellite images to explore the terrain changes on Earth.

In this lab you will use topographic maps and online satellite images to explore the terrain changes on Earth. Please keep in mind, those changes are caused by various geomorphic agents, including running water, ocean waves and tides, wind, glacier, living plants and animals, through their erosion, transportation, and deposition work! In this lab you will learn and appreciate the geomorphic processes operating on our Earth surface through three case studies
All answer please directly fill in to the geomorphology file and answer must need to place below each question.

Assignment #3: One of the greatest mysteries of all time is how life originated

Assignment #3:
One of the greatest mysteries of all time is how life originated on Planet Earth.  Even the most basic and primitive cells are incredibly sophisticated and complex mini-universes that defy explanation as to how they formed.  Did life come from space, or did it appear spontaneously here on Earth? Is the origin of life unique to Earth, or has it happened many times before in other planets and moons of the Solar System and the universe? Did life start with RNA or DNA, or none of them? Did meteors carry life to Earth? Was Earth different than it is today when life started on this planet? Did life appear when there was no water on Earth?  Life is virtually a “miracle”: Where did it come from and how it settled?
Investigate about the origin of life on Earth and write about it.  The questions provided above are to motivate you to investigate about this topic; you do not need to answer them one by one. The work must be at least four paragraphs long, and each paragraph must contain at least five sentences

In this assignment, you will calculate your personal carbon footprint (this includes your home and your personal activities) and that of a small business of your choice. You will discover the impact of the carbon emitted in your personal daily life as well as the impact of the business that you have chosen. You will identify ways that you and/or the small business can support carbon eliminating activities whether they are man-made or natural.
Instructions:
Use this website,https://climatehero.me/or another you may have to assess, to calculate your personal carbon footprint in tons for:
Home/House (tons per year and offset credit):
Car (tons per year and offset credit):
Travel/Airlines (tons per year and offset credit):
Choose a small business familiar to you and estimate the carbon footprint in tons for the following: (seehttps://carbonfund.org/take-action/businesses/business-calculators/ )
Transportation (tons per year and offset credit):
Facility (tons per year and offset credit):
Power Consumption (tons per year and offset credit):
List 10 to 15 ways you and/or your business can offset your carbon footprint.
