Instructions
Building design in earthquake prone regions: American vs Japanese Models
Read the New York Times article: Buildings Can Be Designed to Withstand Earthquakes (Attached)
Research the topic of Earthquake Building Design to find more information. Use peer reviewed, professional research papers.
Write a persuasive letter to a government official to convince them that one model is better than the other for your community. Consider one of two scenarios:
Convince government officials to change building codes by arguing that the Japanese philosophy on structural design is safer, less expensive, and better for your community.
Your letter should have a typical letter format:
Heading
Salutation
Opening paragraph – Why are you writing?
Body – State both sides with supporting data.
Closing – Clearly restate your position with a major reason.
DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR HOME RETURN ADDRESS
DO NOT INCLUDE A COVER PAGE OR RUNNING HEADER
Your letter should be an absolute maximum of two pages, single spaced.
You must cite at least three articles using in-text citations in APA format. One of the citations can be the NY Times article provided. An APA reference list should be included on a separate page.

Watch the videos listed below and explore the websites. These give fun visual explorations of Latin America and the Caribbean. The Indiana University videos give brief explanations of the geographies of population, language, and religion, particularly in South America. This is a region where the relationship between the physical geography and geographies of settlement and culture are integrally related. This is also a region that is vulnerable to natural hazards such as earthquakes and volcanoes.
Write a minimum 5-paragraph essay that discusses the relationship between the physical environment and the human geographies of the region. You can write a general overview or select one particular region and do a case study. If you use any websites other than the ones listed above, please list the citations. You can discuss the urban geographies, cultural geographies, economic geographies–any aspect of the human geography–as long as you demonstrate its relationship to the physical geography of the region you selected. Do not simply describe the physical and human geographies. You are not writing an encyclopedia entry. You are critically considering how physical and human geographies are inter-related.

Answer the questions below.
What unstable isotope would be best to refine the date of bones found in a cave hearth built by humans between 30,000 and 50,000 years ago?
We find samples of an igneous rock demonstrate it has been through 4 half-lives. The test element has a half-life of 150 million years. How old is the rock?
Argue for or against the following: A stone tool fashioned from a chunk of obsidian yields a date of 5,000,000 years old, therefore, the tool was made by a human 5,000,000 years ago.
You are trying to figure out the age of what is thought to be a very old fossil with a volcanic ash layer immediately above the fossil. We know the fossil is at least more than 250 million years old. Should we use carbon 14 to date the fossil, or uranium 238 to date the volcanic ash layer, and why?
If the parent isotope starts with 100 grams, but your samples yield only 12.5 grams of the parent isotope, how many half-lives have passed?
Mineral and Rock Identification:
For mineral and rock identification, you may convey your answers by way of a table or a sentence.

Choose an active volcano from somewhere on Earth, from this online list: http://www.geo.mtu.edu/volcanoes/world.html In a well-crafted essay, cover all of the questions below. (Tip: Investigate your volcano online a bit before committing to it for this assignment; make sure there is sufficient information available about it, in English, for you to be able to meet the paper length requirement.)
What is the name of your volcano? How did it get that name?
Where on Earth is it located? (If possible, include a map.)
What kind of volcano is it?
How old is it? (if known)
What is its tectonic setting? Is it near a plate boundary? If so, which boundary, and how are the plates moving relative to each other?
When have its major eruptions taken place? What happened during those eruptions?
What kinds of rock has the volcano produced?
What is the likelihood this volcano will erupt again in our lifetimes? How dangerous might these future eruptions be?
Include at least one photograph of your volcano. Be sure to use APA format to document its source.
Share any other fascinating facts you have learned about your volcano.

Select a specific topic for your paper that interest you and research the topic

Select a specific topic for your paper that interest you and research the topic in depth. It has to be unique and It must have some bearing to Geology!! For instance, if you want to write about Earthquakes and its association with plate tectonics. For example, earthquakes occur in the vicinity of an active plate tectonic such as the ring of fire. Your discussion should go beyond what is covered in class or in the textbook.

The Introduction/Organization
Your introduction should be impressive and grab the reader’s attention. This is important in order to encourage or induce the reader to continue. One of the best ways to have written a clear purpose or argument that is easily apparent to a reader in the introduction. When writing your paper take care with the construction of paragraphs. Ensure that paragraphs are arranged in a logical manner and avoid being repetitive. Spelling and grammar mistakes should never be made. It is a very basic requirement to get your paper proofread by a competent person before submitting it. Lastly, conclusion should be well supported by the body of your work. Try to ensure that the conclusion gives appropriate insights into the research paper topic. It is essential to check that the conclusions, questions raised or suggested solutions are strongly supported within the introduction.
Content
Your paper should approximate 5 pages of written content typed, double spaced, standard margins and standard font. In addition, include relevant diagrams, maps, charts, tables and/or photos in your paper. You must use at least two sources (your textbook and Wikipedia are not sources).
Use the Google Scholar (Links to an external site.) website to find references as well as search engines to find web resources.
Use documentation MLA format prefer to show your sources for paraphrasing, summarizing or for direct quotes.

There are four lithologies that must be described; C – conglomerate, G – dolerit

There are four lithologies that must be described; C – conglomerate, G – dolerite, H – ignimbrite, I – siltstone.
These should be described on the templates provided. Therefore, there must be 4 templates. For the conglomerate use the sedimentary template. For the siltstone use the sedimentary template. For the dolerite use the crystalline igneous thin section template. For the ignimbrite use the pyroclastic template. The powerpoint images of these rocks are provided. There is no need to describe every individual image.
You can either print off the templates and complete by hand, or type directly into the word documents and insert an image of your (hand-drawn) sketch of the lithologies in ppl.
