Timer The final Jeopardy answer is: C1 final Why are waves usually bigger in the ocean than in a small lake?
C1 final The size of a wave depends on the area of the water and the strength of the wind. The wind may blow the same strength over the lake as the ocean, but the ocean has a larger surface. So, the wind blows over a longer distance as it moves over the ocean, producing larger waves.
C2 $100 The part of the ocean floor that drops steeply.
C2 $100 What is the continental slope?
C2 $200 The large flat area on the bottom of the ocean.
C2 $200 What is the abyssal plain?
C2 $300 A point of land formed when soft rock wears away.
C2 $300 What is a headland?
C2 $400 A temporary pool of ocean water.
C2 $400 What is a tide pool?
C2 $500 How does a jetty work?
C2 $500 A jetty traps sand carried by long shore currents.
C3 $100 What causes waves to form.
C3 $100 What happens when wind blows over the surface of the water?
C3 $200 How does water in a wave move?
C3 $200 In a circle
C3 $300 What happens to water pressure and water temperature as you descend?
C3 $300 Pressure increases, temperature decreases
C3 $400 The type of currents that cause sand to move.
C3 $400 What are long shore currents?
C3 $500 Why might some beach property owners oppose the building of jetties?
C3 $500 People on one side of the jetty would benefit while the people on the other side would have the sand eroded away with no way of it being replaced.
C4 $100 A dangerous current that can pull a swimmer away from shore.
C4 $100 What is a rip current?
C4 $200 This forms when waves wear a hole in a headland.
C4 $200 What is a sea arch?
C4 $300 Beach restorations replace this.
C4 $300 What is sand?
C4 $400 Where do estuaries happen?
C4 $400 Where a river empties into an ocean.
C4 $500 If you were at the shore during a hurricane and the winds were strong and gusty, what kinds of waves would you observe?
C4 $500 The strong, gusty winds would cause waves to surge stronger and higher than normal waves. The waves would be choppy and capped with white.
C5 $100 Time when you can see more of the shoreline.
C5 $100 What is low tide?
C5 $200 Storm surges are caused by these.
C5 $200 What are hurricanes ?
C5 $300 The two major currents in the northern hemisphere.
C5 $300 What is the gulf stream and Kuroshio?
C5 $400 What features might you find on the abyssal plain?
C5 $400 Volcanoes Trenches mountains?
C5 $500 Rainwater flows along the side of the street, carrying leaves and twigs and depositing them where the flow turns the corner. Which makes the flow slow down. Is this a good model for long shore currents that carry beach material? Explain?
C5 $500 YES, long shore currents drop their sediments at a place where the current slows, just as the flow of rainwater deposits leaves where it turns the corner.
