earths crust top thin layer of earth that humans live on
weather day to day changes in temperature and precipitation of an area
humus dark, nutrient rich soil
magma molten rock
calving the process of ice chunks breaking off a glacier
permafrost permanently frozen soil
elevation as it increases, temperature s decrease
weathering process of breaking large rocks into smaller sediments
fossil fuels coal, oil, natural gas
calcification the soil has no water and plant dies of dehydration
leaching too much water in the soil and plants die because they are water logged
intuition mountains young, jagged, near arctic cities like Iqaluit
western cordillera young, jagged, near cities like Vancouver
Appalachians round, near cities like Halifax
policies that will reduce fossil fuels increase gas prices, cease developments of oilseeds, reduce amounts of gas cars
climate graphs graph of a city's temperature and precipitation
greenhouse effect sun rays hit earth in heat, C02 and other gases trap heat in the earth's atmosphere
rock cycle magma erupts and turns into igneous rock. erosion and weathering causes igneous rock to turn into sedimentary rock. Heat and pressure makes both these into metamorphic rock. convergence may turn any of these rocks back into magma.

crust (where we live) varies in height, up to 50km thick
Plates tectonics earth plates are in constant motion
divergence when two plates come apart, most common in oceans, creates new earth, most volcanos are on divergent plates
convergence when one plate slides underneath another in a process called subduction, crust is melted
continental creates mountains and ridges (including Everest)
transform plates move roughly parallel to each other in opposite directions can result in dangerous earthquake generally in range of 5.5-7.5
