Type “Hawaii” into the search bar of Google Earth and examine the chain of Hawaiian Islands. On a separate sheet of paper please draw yourself a map of the islands and label the following on your map (making sure to include the names), which will be used to answer the following questions.
Islands to include:
Big Island, Maui, Kauai, Nihoa (23 03 32.79N 161 55 11.94W)
a. Put a North arrow on your map. b. Label the ages of each of the islands determined by radiometric dating of the lava.
Big Island- 0 (active), Maui – 1.1 million, Kauai- 4.7 million, Nihoa- 7.2 million years
a. Place a dot at the center of each island and measure on Google earth the distance between the center of an island and its adjacent island in centimeters (for example measure the distance between the center of the Big Island and Maui). b. Look closely at each island in Google Earth and record their maximum elevation in centimeters. Remember elevation can be found by placing your cursor over a point and reading the elevation on the lower right of the image by the latitude and longitude. The elevation will be given in meters, but can be converted to centimeters by multiplying by 100. (Hint: tilting the image of the island will help to find the highest point.
How fast was the Pacific plate moving during the last 1.1 million years between the formation of the Big Island and Maui in cm/year? To calculate this divide the distance (in centimeters) between the two islands by the difference in their ages. Please show all your calculations including unit conversions.
How fast was the Pacific plate moving from 7.2 million years ago to 4.7 million years ago between the formation of Kauai and Nihoa in cm/year? To calculate this divide the distance (in centimeters) between the two islands by the difference in their ages. Please show all your calculations including unit conversions.
in today’s time we would call corned beef. With advancements in the food industry, the Navy Seals of today can drink a blend of ingredients that can provide around 2,000 calories in a bottle just like a smoothie. Most food for the military personnel doesn’t taste good, you must substitute the taste for its nutritional value; we have to make sure what our soldiers eat keeps them healthy and strong. During WWII a poster came our stating “Food is a weapon, don’t waste it! But wisely, cook carefully, eat it all and follow the national wartime nutrition program” which was stating ration your food the soldiers over seas can win the war for you so you can have your families back since most people over 18 and healthy were drafted into the military because we were short soldiers due to the bloody battles. I want to prove that the food they serve the soldiers is not enough to sustain them for several days, at least bring some flavor to their mouths because they are fighting for us; we shouldn’t make them feel like they are in a prison cafeteria where people are punished instead of being honored. The nutritional value of the food matters a lot. If the soldiers do not have the nutrients they need to survive in the climate that they are in or the terrain they have to go over; your going to have a lot of deaths by starvation and exhaustion. Most of the ration packs consist of about 2,800-3,000 calories per day for a soldier. The military ration packs of WWI were a older concept of canned foods. It usually consisted of “bully beef” or corned beef, mesh stew or bacon if your lucky, vegetables, and biscuits which were more like dog treats than anything a human is supposed to eat. Usually the meals did not look very appetizing because at the time we needed more money to use for weaponry and vehicles than for the food. It was usually packed into cans which weren’t the easiest things to get open with the can opener “keys.” If you were issued the Trench Ration you were in for a rough time, it was extremely heavy and most soldiers did not want it. It was most likely stored on the shelf of the trench because it was so heavy. It consisted of canned salmon, canned bully beef and canned sardines; there was a lot of food in this pack. With the Emergency Ration, it was generally used for emergencies. The Emergency Ration would consist of 3 bee>GET ANSWER
