- Geothermal Energy
- Sea floor spreading
- Laws of Thermodynamics
- a a triangular tract of sediment deposited at the mouth of a river, typically where it diverges into several outlets.
- b Transport of heat and work in the thermodynamic process.
First law- No amount of energy is created or destroyed but energy can be changed from one form to another(can't get more energy out of something than you put in).This law doesn't apply to nuclear changes in which energy can be produced from small amounts of matter.
Second Law- In a conversion of heat energy to useful work, some of the initial energy input is ALWAYS degraded to lower-quality more dispersed and less useful energy. (low temp. heat that flows to environment cannot break even in terms of energy quality.
- c the process by which molten material adds new oceanic crust to the ocean floor
- d A sudden and violent shaking of the ground, sometimes causing great destruction, as a result of movements within the earth's crust or volcanic action
- e Energy derived from the heat in the interior of the Earth. Obtained by deep drilling in suitable geological areas where volcanic activity can provide heat from the earths crust

- Saturation of soil with irrigation water or excessive preciptation so that the water table rises close to the surface.
- Land that is covered all or part of the time with salt water or fresh water, excluding streams, lakes, and the open ocean.
- The shifting of the continents due to the movement of the tectonic plates upon the asthenosphere.

5 True/False Questions
Reverse fault → a geological fault in which the upper side appears to have been pushed upward by compression
Mantle → The layer of the Earth found below the crust, contains the upper mantle and lower mantle.
Denitrification → Also called microirrigation, this is the most efficient (90-95%) way to deliver small amounts of water precisely to crops. It consists of a network of perforated plastic tubing installed at or below ground level. Small pinholes in the tubing deliver drops of water at a slow and steady rate, close to the roots of individual plants.
Doldrums → an equatorial region of the Atlantic Ocean with calms, sudden storms, and light unpredictable winds
Ammonification → the process in the nitrogen cycle where decomposers convert organic waste into ammonia
