Geology of the world and the Environment

Palo Duro Canyon, Texas, USA


Palo Duro Canyon is a canyon system of the Caprock Escarpment
located in the Texas Panhandle near the cities of Amarillo and Canyon.
It's the second-largest canyon in the United States at 120 miles long,
as much as 20 miles wide, and has a maximum depth of more than
800 feet. Its elevation at the rim is 3,500 feet above sea level.

Palo Duro Canyon was formed by water erosion from the Prairie
Dog Town Fork of the Red River. The water deepens the canyon
by moving sediment downstream. Wind and water erosion gradually
widen the canyon. Most of the strata visible in the Canyon were
deposited during the Permian and Triassic periods.

The sacred 'sisters' of ancient America
from BBC World's Table
"In Quebec, the tale of the "three sisters" isn't just
a myth about cooperation; it's a message from
Wendat ancestors that teaches modern people
about ancient, life-sustaining food."

Newton's Laws of Motion


Newton’s First Law of Motion states that a body continues to
be in the state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line
unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force. It is also
called the Law of Inertia.

Fossil-finding ants amass huge haul of ancient creatures
from National Geographic, credits listed in the article
.
Paleontologists have just discovered 10 new species of
ancient mammal thanks to the tiny mound-building insects.

As they build their mounds out of sand and gravel, harvester
ants regularly find and accumulate fossils mere millimeters
across, a boon to paleontologists.

6 Fascinating Places to See the Fibonacci Sequence
article from Mental Floss

The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which
each digit reflects the sum of the two preceding numbers,
as shown below:

So what? You may ask.So this: "The sequence is in
everything from cabbages to music to ocean waves.
It can also be found in the form of the golden ratio,
also known as Phi and expressed numerically as 1.618."

Photos and videos show the many ways the sequence
is shown in science, nature, music, finance, astronomy,
art... Sunflowers, pine cones, human fingers, snail shells,
ram horns, ants, a hawk's flight, ancient Greek temples,
financial techniques, the shape of galaxies*, orbits of
planets, Saturn's rings, and your ears!
(*Spiral galaxies like the Milky Way, Galaxy M81, and
the Andromeda nebula all resemble the golden spiral.")
It's everywhere!

CDR Mary Sears, USN WW II
Commander, Naval Oceanographic Office


"... the first Oceanographer of the Navy in modern
times was a short, rather shy and prim WAVE
Lieutenant (jg)...[The U.S. Navy] underestimated
the powerful natural force that is Mary Sears.
That tiny oceanographic unit soon became a
Division, and finally the entire Hydrographic
Office evolved into the Naval Oceanographic Office."
"...her research proved critical to the survivability
of U.S. submarines. Her intelligence reports,
“Submarine Supplements to the Sailing Directions,”
predicted thermoclines—areas of rapid water
temperature change. Submarines could hide in
thermoclines to escape enemy detection by surface
sonar. Her unit was charged with aiding the Navy
in strategic maneuvers through providing analysis
of tides, surf heights, and other oceanic metrics
to give the Navy a strategic advantage."

"The sea level scenarios and information contained
in this tool originate from a 2022 technical report
produced by the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flood
Hazard Scenarios and Tools Interagency Task Force.
This report provides the most up-to-date sea level
rise scenarios, available for all U.S. states and
territories, out to the year 2150. It is the latest
product from the Task Force, which includes the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration,
the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration,
Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Geological
Survey, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, along
with partners in academia. The information in the
report and this tool is intended to inform coastal
communities and others about current and future
sea level rise to help contextualize its effects for
decision making purposes." You can download the
entire technical report here.
How the tool works: Start the tool by
clicking on its url. Scroll to the bottom of the
popup page, and click Start.
Pick on of the blue dots along the coastal map.

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am the newest Brittany here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lillian and I are American Brittanies, both
rescues, and both South Dakota natives. When
we're not helping out on the site, we patrol outdoors,
chase rabbits and squirrels, woof at kids at the
playground, rack out on our beds, ask
for
treats, and hang out with our humans!
