decay or the rate of other cumulative changes in atoms resulting from radioactivity. The various isotopes of the same element differ in terms of atomic mass but have the same atomic number..One half-life is the amount of time required for of the original atoms in a sample to decay.Such contamination can occur if a sample is exposed to carbon compounds in exhaust gasses produced by.In addition, any argon that existed prior to the last time the rock was molten will have been driven off by the intense heat.
Moreover, we will focus in on the Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming and relate it to climate patterns.
The Physical Setting: Earth Science is related to the field of science called Earth Science.
In this course you will be studying the different processes, relationships, mechanisms, and concepts that help us interpret our planet Earth.
Below are some additional resources to help you along the way, prepare you for your midterm exam and the Earth Science Regents exam.
The resources below vary in content, but may prove useful throughout the year.
We will also focus on agents of erosion and be able to identify their different geologic features.
