  • Where would the theory of plate tectonics predict that earthquakes would occur?
  • Compare the features caused by stream erosion, wind erosion, and glacial erosion.
  • What is the principle of uniformity? What are the underlying assumptions of this principle?
  • Describe how the principles of superposition, horizontality, and faunal succession are used in the relative dating of sedimentary rock layers.
  • Describe how you could use a garden hose and a bucket of water to make a barometer. How high a column of water would standard atmospheric pressure balance in a water barometer? Explain your conclusions.
  • Compare and contrast (a) evaporation and (b) condensation.
  • Evaluate the requirement that differential heating must take place before wind will blow. Do any winds exist without differential heating?
  • What are the significant similarities and differences between a river and an ocean current?
