“Natural Hazards”

  

Access the “USGS Hazards” website under the Natural Hazards terms  section of the Science Corner. You can also access the website at http://www.usgs.gov/natural_hazards/.  Choose one (1) of the following geologic hazards: earthquake,  landslide, or flood. Next, determine the key factors that influence the  occurrence of your chosen hazard. Then, analyze the human role in  elevating the risks of occurrence, as well as mitigation strategies to  minimize damage and loss of life.

Watch the video titled “Meet the Volcanoes” (2 min 57 sec) under the  Volcanism terms section of the Science Corner. You can also view the  video at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/meet-volcanoes.html.  Next, use the Internet or Strayer Library to research articles on the  Mauna Loa Volcano in Hawaii and Mount Pinatubo in Philippines. Based on  the type (i. e., cinder cone, shield, or composite) of volcano, and its  common eruption characteristics, speculate on the societal and  environmental damages that Mauna Loa and Mount Pinatubo would cause if  they erupted today. Justify your response with evidence from your  research.

Describe three (3) ways that Wegener’s continental drift hypothesis  has helped to shape modern plate tectonic theory, and then explain why  his hypothesis was not widely accepted by his peers when first proposed.  Next, analyze at least two (2) types of evidence used to support plate  tectonic theory.
