1. You should be able to answer the following questions in preparation for your exam:

2. What was the main purpose of the Challenger expedition?

3. What is oceanography? Why is it considered an interdisciplinary science? What other science does oceanography incorporate? Give an example of each.

4. How does the relationship between the earth and sun determine the seasons? The equinoxes? The amount of daylight experiences at different latitudes and longitudes on the planet?

5. What are the parts of the hydrologic cycle? Define each? How do they cycle?

6. What are lines of latitude and longitude? How are they alike? How are they different? How do they change across the globe? Give examples of each.

10. What are Pangaea, Gondwanaland and Laurasia? Where were they located? What do scientists hypothesize about these land masses?

11. Compare and contrast passive and active continental margins? What causes each? What are examples of each? Where can they be found?

12. What are characteristics of vent communities? Where are they found? What organisms can be found there and what adaptations do they have that allows them to be successful in this ecosystem? How are they different from other marine ecosystems? How does primary production occur?

13. What is an active continental rift? What causes it? Where can they be found? Give an example.

14. What are the geological features of the ocean floor? What forms and characterizes each? What would I expect to encounter if moving from the shore to open ocean?

15. What are turbidity currents? What causes them? What can they cause? Where are they found?

16. What are the 3 different types of coral reefs? How are they formed? How are they similar to and different from each other? What types of organisms build coral reefs?

17. What devices are used to take samples of ocean sediments? How do they work?

18. What spheres are found on earth? Describe them? What are the layers of the atmosphere? How are they alike and different from each other?
