Carbon is constantly on the move through the different components of Earth’s Geosphere and Biosphere, but at very different timescales and spatial scales. For example, the processes that move carbon from the ocean (hydrosphere) to the lithosphere happen over a very large spatial scale and can take timescales of millions of years. In contrast, the process that moves carbon from the leaves of plants in the biosphere to the atmosphere happens in minutes and at a spatial scale as small a leaf’s surface. In this Lab, you will have the opportunity to explore how the global carbon cycle and subsets of the carbon cycle operate on very different spatial scales and timescales. In Part A, you will explore the role of food webs in a subset of the….

YOU are responsible for reading and understanding these instructions. If you turn in an assignment that does not follow these instructions, your grade will reflect it. You cannot say I didn’t warn you. The purpose of this assignment is to have you explore the type of scholarly research being done by human geographers. The project will give you an understanding of the breadth and depth of research that geographers do, point out important issues in this sub-field that are the subject of academic research, and give you insights on how geographers conduct research and present that research. This assignment requires you to focus on articles in peer-reviewed, scholarly journals rather than popular media. There are several things that distinguish scholarly articles from other types of writing. Firstly, these….
1.Many of the products you use everyday are derived from petrochemicals, substances obtained by the refining and processing of petroleum or natural gas. While there are great debates occurring worldwide about human’s use of petroleum as a fuel source, there are many products you might not think about that are manufactured using petrochemicals. List five products that are manufactured using petrochemicals that you would not want to do without.
2. Many of the mineral resources we use are extracted from extensive open-pit mines throughout the United States. These mining operations provide jobs and resources that our country needs. They also require extensive set-asides of both public and private lands and can destroy habitat for vulnerable species. How do we balance our resource needs and protect our natural lands and water supplies?

The topic of this Homework is climate change. Address the following questions in it:
What is the difference between weather and climate? Describe how Earth’s climate can change naturally. How do humans contribute to climate change? Do you feel you have personally contributed to climate change? Use the textbook or other course resources to list one consequence of global warming as predicted by scientists.
Most likely you, or someone you know, have experienced a natural disaster at some point in their lives. Specifically, describe all of the natural disasters that could occur where you live. This could be geologic (i.e., earthquake) or atmospheric (i.e., tornado). Be sure to include detailed information such as the name of plate boundaries involved, dominant atmospheric fronts, etc.
Have you experienced one of these disasters? How do these disasters affect the landforms in your area? Be sure to cite your textbook or course resources in your post.
Green Ninja Smart Energy Project and Contest (10% of course grade)
Overview: Apply engineering design thinking principles to reduce home energy use. You will a) design and implement an energy conservation plan, and b) test and possibly refine your plan over a one week period. Participating students will be eligible to win a variety of prizes! All written work will be submitted electronically on Canvas.
Note: If you live on campus, please do NOT create an online PG&E account using your dorm address. You can act as an energy consultant for a friend or family member. This also applies to students who live off campus but can’t directly access their own energy usage data.
Part 1: Access to Energy Data (25% of grade)
Summary: Students will A) get access to PG&E….
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…..
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.
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?
