a. In the third column, rank this data by year from the largest amount (rank of 1) to the smallest (rank of 9).b. In the fourth column, calculate the probability, in percent, of the flood recurring using the formula: rank/( n + 1 ) × 100 ; where n = the number of years with available datac. In column five, rank the recurrence intervals. This is determined by the following equation: RI = (N + 1)/M Where: RI = the recurrence interval N is the number of years the floods are on record M is the rank of the flooding event (largest flood M = 1) Because there are nine years of data, this calculation becomes 9 + 1, divided by the rank number you assignedAnalyze and Conclude 3. In your completed data table, how is the recurrence interval related to the rank andprobability of each years maximum discharge? (3 pts)4. Based on your answer to question 3, what maximum discharge might residents along the Big Thompson River typically expect? Explain. (3 pts)5. Does knowing the recurrence interval enable you to predict floods on the Big Thompson River during the next nine-year period? Explain why or why not. (3 pts)6. In many areas of the world, accurate stream recurrence interval data now extend over one century. After a record (rank 1 flood) in these areas, the media often refer to it as a once in a century flood, or a 100-year flood. In your job as a watershed manager, does this mean that prospective home and business owners are safe from another event of that magnitude for more than the average human lifetime? Explain. (3 pts)7. Looking at Figure 3 on the page 6, describe the difference in flow characteristics discussed in Section 10.5 (in your text) for stream water flowing in the middle of the canyon and the same water as it flows out of the mountains and across the Great Plains just below the Rocky Mountains.

Research ProjectOverviewThis is an independent research project. You are supposed to select a region in Asia and an issue thatis of particular importance to that region (and of interest to you). You are required to research theissue and write a research paper of approximately 7-15 pages that discusses the nature, origin, andoutlook for that issue. You may consult the instructor for possible research topics or/and talk to alibrarian for useful academic references.ObjectivesThe objectives of this research project are threefold: 1) to encourage you to explore, in some depth,geographic issues in a region of Asia; 2) to help you develop some basic research skills (e.g. dataacquisition, library searching, etc.); 3) to help you develop your written communication skills.Project ScheduleFeb. 16: project guideline providedMay 7: research paper due. Please submit it on Canvas by 11:55 pm.May 14: virtual research presentation. Please post your PowerPoint presentation on the VirtualResearch Presentation Forum by 11:55 pm.WorthThe research paper is worth 12% of your course grade, and virtual presentation is worth 5% of yourgrade.What to include in your paper?In your research paper you should firstly introduce the region of your study (e.g. where is it, what is itlike, who lives there, etc.) Then you need to analyze the nature of the issue, describe the research dataand methods (if any), characterize geographic patterns discovered, provide possible explanations forthe observed patterns, and discuss the future outlook or policy implication of the issue. In otherwords, in addition to describing what the issue is, and what its impact is on the region, you need to2think about and discuss when and why the issue arose in the first place, and what is likely to happenin the future (i.e. worsen or improve?).You can find a short list of possible topics on pages 2-3, which you are free to do, but there arehundreds of other possible issues as well.ReferenceYou are required to consult sources such as books or journal articles. You should make reference toat least one academic source other than the textbook. You must clearly cite any sources you use.The referencing system you use is up to you (e.g. APA citation style or MLA citation style), but itmust be consistent, and the reader must be able to determine exactly where you got the material from.Students may ask a librarian for useful academic sources (a 24/7 online reference assistance service isavailable at: http://library.fullerton.edu/services/ask.php).Formatting RequirementsYour research paper should be of about 7-15 pages in length (including the title page andbibliography but excluding tables, figures and maps). You may place all your tables and maps afterthe text and bibliography. If you have multiple tables and/or maps, they should be clearly numbered(e.g. Table 1, Table 2, etc.). Your paper should be typed and double-spaced in 12 point font with oneinch margins. You should include a title page which clearly indicates the course code (GEOG 340)the title of your research project, as well as your name and student ID.Virtual Research PresentationStudents are supposed to do a virtual presentation by posting a PowerPoint (5-8 slides in total) ondiscussion board. In PowerPoint students may show their main research findings and share interestingfacts and pictures about the issues studied. The first slide of the PowerPoint should contain studentname and title of research, and the last slide should contain the major references used. Be creative inmaking your virtual presentation!Possible TopicsPlease note that the topics below are only some suggestions to get you going. There are a lot of otherpossibilities and you can choose anything that interests you. Make sure it relates to a specific region.1) The socioeconomic consequences of population aging in Japan2) Chinas One-child Policyhttp://library.fullerton.edu/services/ask.php33) Developing sustainable tourism in Thailand4) Population growth in Bangladesh5) Ethnic conflicts in Sri Lanka6) The rise of Pearl River Delta7) Gender discrimination in South Asia8) China and India the population super giants9) Major languages in Pakistan10) Chinese Feng Shui and its manifestation in landscape11) Special economic zones in Thailand12) The impact of the Olympics on China13) Religions in India14) The development of Hsinchu – Taiwan’s Silicon Valley15) Tsunami impact on aquaculture in Indonesia16) The White Revolution in India17) Entertainer immigrants in Japan18) Urban development in Manila19) Environmental transformation in newly industrializing countries of East & Southeast Asia20) Bollywood and its film industry21) Deforestation in Malaysia22) Ancient civilizations of Harappa and Mohenjo-daro23) Sustainable agriculture in Monsoon AsiaPlease feel free to share your research topics or research ideas on the Research Topic Sharing Forum.

The Trivia forum is a place where students post mini written reports and find a warm introduction to each week’s new topics and highlights, including information on current geologic events that are mentioned in the news. The Trivia forum is a great place to pose questions pertaining to that weeks topic. Forums provide an opportunity for written communication and interaction with classmates and your instructor. All iLearn forums will open for the second week of class.Engage in easy conversation about geologic hazards to earn added science discussion credit! Students may earn participation credit for posting: (1) a mini report that provides an answer to a posted question, or (2) a mini report followed by a relevant geology question. This is an all-semester long project. Students may post anytime between 1 February and 3 May. Students are NOT required to tune in and post every week. Please see the rubric on iLearn for important guidance. This policy allows students to skip forums during illness, travel, or personal reasons without consequence. Only (15) total participation points are necessary for an A in this semester-long activity, and each post can earn as many as 5 points. If partial credit is earned on a post, it’s okay to post again to earn more points! This will provide ample opportunities for everyone to earn a perfect score and shine! 🙂 The total number needed for an A in participation this semester is 15 points.Please take caution that contributions contain NEW information. Questions added to the Trivia forum must begin with a mini report and ask about the geologic or scientific details of a specific geologic hazard. Comments that contain information / questions / answers already posted by another student will not achieve a score. Posts that contain negative material or reworded homework questions will be deleted.
