So really how people perceive, understand and interact with the planet. So a geologist is someone who studies the earth. And you can actually think a little more broadly about an earth scientist.

Why Earthquakes Are So Hard To Predict

Hi, this is Alex, from MinuteEarth. San Francisco has been hit by a gigantic earthquake at the least once every hundred years going back so far as we all know. So the individuals of San Francisco know that someday in the subsequent a hundred years, theyre prone to get shaken again by way of a enormous quake.

Volcanic evolution of the Pacific Northwest: 55 million year history

Active volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest result from a varied tectonic setting. Ocean-ridge rifting produces submarine volcanism offshore. Northwest subduction of the young Juan de Fuca Plate creates the arc of Cascades volcanoes. Hot-spot volcanism drives the Yellowstone caldera system. Continental extension plus a northward migrating triple junction add to the complex volcanic history. To look at the development of volcanism in the Pacific Northwest we will go back 55 million years to a time prior to stretching of the continent by Basin-and-Range extension and when Mesozoic subduction, compression, and crustal thickening had waned. At the end of the Cretaceous, […]
