For this assignment, please select ONE of the two exercises below.
Option 1:
Locate a dripping water faucet (or set a faucet to drip). Collect the water that drips from the faucet over a selected period of time (in a container sufficient to hold the water). Calculate the amount of water (in gallons) lost per unit time. Calculate how much water would be lost in one year from this drip.
Determine the cost of water per thousand gallons of water (from local water board or a water bill). Calculate the cost of the drip per year from the information you have.
Determine the amount and cost of the water you use in taking your shower regularly. You will need to set the shower faucet as you normally do; record the time in minutes it takes you to shower; determine the amount of water used (by catching it and measuring it somehow) in one minute; and then calculate the savings per year using the procedure outlined above for the dripping faucet.
Lastly you are to measure the amount of water used by taking your regular shower and comparing it with the amount of water consumed in taking a “military shower” (alternately turn the water off and on to save as much water as you can).
Discuss how you could reduce your water use. Are there more efficient appliances or fixtures? Are there behaviors that you could employ that would reduce your water consumption? Choose at least three changes and explain how you could make them.
Copy and paste the questions above (from #4 and #5) into a Word document and answer each as completely as possible; include the basic calculations you made. Then, add your Word table or Excel file as a table to your paper. Upload your final paper to the Assignment page for this module.

Geography field trip report -Research Paper

Order Description

Field Trip Objectives:
● Perform stream gauging at a number of selected sites representing a gradient of urbanization and associated storm water inputs
○ Relate the collected observations such as depth, point of maximum velocity and channel width to stream morphology and erosive potential
● Observe and take note of how the valley has been shaped by erosion and human modification, and determine if there is a gradient of impact from north to south
● Examine differences in water velocity, stream channel shape and discharge
● Take note of sources of pollution and any mitigation measures evident

Specific aspects of the Field Trip:
Your teaching assistant will lead you to your specific site, assign tasks and supervise activities. Students must record their own data in their field notebook. We will identify and discuss many important features as we traverse the river valley. Make sure to take careful and detailed notes, as these will assist you to write your field report. Pay particular attention to the following:
● river bank characteristics
○ reinforced vs. natural, vegetated vs. barren
● presence or absence of a riffle/pool dynamic indicative of a natural stream and suitable habitat

● presence or absence of aquatic vegetation
○ including riparian vegetation which shades water and reduces stream temperatures
● evidence of flooding and erosion
○ debris, mass wasting, vegetation stripped during high flow conditions
● evidence of pollution
○ i.e. foaming or discharge from storm drains
● stream channel characteristics
○ depth, flow speed, flow direction

Stream Gauging Equipment:
Measuring tape (100’), Metre Stick, Stopwatch, Orange peels, Drop weight 

Stream Gauging Procedure:
● Measure the width of the channel – record this in your field notebook
● Divide the width into 1m intervals (or as directed by your T.A.)
● Consult a simple diagram as follows – use the profiles provided below to construct the diagram

● Use the drop weight to determine the depth of the steam at each interval
● Determine the velocity of the stream by dropping an orange peel floater and measuring the time required to cover a defined distance (10 or 20 metres is sufficient). Repeat for each interval
○ Note whether the floaters deviate laterally from their initial placement in the stream, if they do, attempt again
○ Record the results in your notebook. You do not have to record the results in their final format – they may be converted later. For example, you might write that our floaters took 22 seconds to travel 10 meters – you can convert this into meters-per-second in your field notebook later.
● Apply the formula to calculate discharge for each interval. Sum the values to get the value for the stream as a whole. 
Q = V x W x D
Where Q is the discharge, V is the velocity, W is the average width and D is the average depth of the flow.
This final stage should be completed later in your field notebook. Please ensure that you have collected all the pertinent data before you leave the site. 
Use the following space to construct rough diagram of the stream

History of Climatology of Tornadoes in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area

Order Description
This all needs to be put into one powerpoint slide. I will give you my data that i got from noaa and tornado history project. I will give you an example of an example poster. You need to go off of that because the finished slide you make should have the same set up as the example poster. You need to only use the data that i give you which is in an excel file that i will upload to you. You need to calculate the mean, median, mode, correlation, regression, standard deviation, variance, etc. and put into a table on the slide. You need to make graphs/charts like the example poster show that i will be uploading to shortly. YOU CAN ONLY USE THE SOURCE THAT I GIVE YOU IN MY ANNOTATED BIB WHICH I WILL UPLOAD TO YOU.
An illustrated poster is a presentation of the research problem, data, methods, results, discussion and conclusions displayed on a poster board. In addition, a short (3-5 minute) oral presentation will be given. The oral presentation is followed by one-on-one or small group discussion with audience members. All students who plan to graduate during a given semester and who chose this option will present their illustrated posters during the same scheduled time period. Department faculty will be in attendance to hear presentations, discuss posters one-on-one with students, and participate in evaluating students’ work. Illustrated posters will be graded using a standard rubric. The rubric tells you the criteria used to evaluate your senior assignment; consequently, you are strongly encouraged to review this rubric prior to beginning your senior assignment project.

Effective posters marry good research with good visual display. They include clear, easily identifiable objectives, an appropriate size font, good graphics, and strong organization. Below are some websites that can help you plan your poster. Keep in mind that you will submit a draft of your poster mid-semester to ensure that you are on the right track.
Poster Guidelines

Your faculty supervisor can give you advice on how to create, save, and print your poster. Below are some general guidelines to follow.

Content: Your poster should include (1) author and affiliation (your name, supervisor’s name, and the Geography Department); (2) title; (3) background or introduction; (4) methods and materials; (5) results; (6) conclusions; and, (7) acknowledgements.
How to create your poster: You can use a variety of software programs to create your poster, including PowerPoint.
Poster size: 34″ x 44″ (printed on a large format printer in color).
How to print your poster: posters should be saved as PDFs. You can print one (and only one) copy of your poster on the department’s large format printer. Your faculty supervisor will advise you when your poster is ready to print, and must assist you in printing the poster.

Is Peace Out of Reach: Has peace in the Middle East become nothing more than a pipe dream? As Bob Simon reports, a growing number of Israelis and Palestinians feel that a two-state solution is no longer possible. (http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=4752349n)
