Choose one of the following prompts to answer.Prompt 1Your friend has just bought a house, and he is going to be putting in a new driveway. The town he is moving to is located 10 km from the coast and has a temperate climate. The house is at the top of a hill, and the slope of the area that will become the driveway is steep and is surrounded by trees on both sides. At the bottom of the hill is a main road. The neighbors directly across the street have a sloping downward driveway to their house, which is located at a moderate slope. Your friend has five choices for a driveway: 1) Leave it the way it is and drive on the grass; 2) tear up the grass and cover it with sand; 3) tear up the grass and cover it with small pebbles; 4) tear up the grass and cover it with slightly larger rocks (12″); or 5) tear up the grass and pave it with asphalt. Discuss the pros/cons to each type of driveway with regard to what you know about the local climate, topography, sediment transport, mass wasting, hydrology, and future climate predictions. Which would you recommend your friend use for his driveway, and what should he be aware of if he chooses that option?Prompt 2The global hydrologic cycle was established well before humans began to take large volumes of groundwater out of aquifers to use for irrigation. What is the immediate fate of the water that is withdrawn for irrigation? Where does it go? What are the long-term implications for other components of the hydrologic cycle if we continue to use large volumes of groundwater for irrigation faster than it can be replenished? Address both the immediate and long-term impact. Refer to the components of the hydrologic cycle, including streams, rivers, ice, groundwater, evaporation, precipitation, and run-off. What impact does using large volumes of groundwater have on the human species? Think about the pros and cons and defend your analysis.Prompt 3Discuss the impact that Hurricane Katrina had on the greater New Orleans area. Why was this region impacted so heavily by this storm? Be sure to consider plate tectonics, topography, sediment supply, river course, sea level, climate change, and the human influence on the region. If you were advising the politicians and other decision makers in this region, what advice would you give them to better prepare the city and surrounding area for any future storm events?

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.
For this assignment l just want you to focus on the environment safety ( ie what ways that we are able to help sustain the environment we live in? is overuse for agriculture land an important factor that affects the environment ? runoff ,chemicals and so on .Make sure to cite the sources that you will use on the separate page.This is a research assignment so please don’t go copy and paste lt should be free plagiarism. e B.C.

Geology Questions1. The soil profile at a site consists of:0 8m Sand t=16kN/m3 Ko=0.58 12m Clay t=20kN/m3 Ko=0.3The water table is initially at a depth of 1m below the surface. The water table is to be rapidly lowered to a depth of 6m and maintained at that level permanently. Consider two points in the soil profile, Point A at a depth of 4m and Point B at a depth of 10m. Determine the effective vertical and horizontal stresses at Points A and B for two cases:a) Initial conditions where the water table is 1m below the surface.b) A long time after lowering the water table to 6m below the surface.Answer for a:Answer for b:2. A level site consists of a deep deposit of sand having a total density of 1.7t/m3. The water table is 2m below the surface of the sand. During a period of wet weather the site is flooded such that 2m of water covers the site. Determine the change in vertical effective stress at a point 4m below the surface of the sand as a result of this flooding.Answer:3. An element of soil is subjected to the normal compressive stresses of 100 and 40kPa as shown in Figure 2. Shear stresses are now applied to the planes on which these stresses act. What is the magnitude of the shear stress which must be applied to those planes such that the plane of major principal stress in the element is horizontal?Answer:4. The stresses shown in Figure 3 are applied at a point in a soil mass. Determine the angle that the plane of major principal stress makes with the x-axis.Answer:
