3 Geomorthology Landforms (2a.) Written and visualsGeomorthology LandformsOrgan pipesRosette rockThe natural processes that have createdThe landforms of how they look today,Are the erosion, by the wind and rain. The sunMakes the pipes crack and crumble. The basaltIs pocketed with air bubbles formed from the lavaMillions of years ago.The natural Processes thatHave created the landforms of theRosette rock are alarge outcrop of basalt with a radialarray of columns formed by the,radial Cooling of a pocket of lava,probably in a spherical cave formedfrom an earlier lava flow.Tessellated PavementThe natural processes thatHave created the landforms ofThe Tessellated Pavement isThat its appearance looks likeIts been tiled. Instead of verticalfaces being visible as at theOrgan Pipes, the horizontal facesare visible. You can climb overThis pavement and view theJackson’s creek.
4 Yes, I think there is a more dominant sphere in (2B.) WRITTENYes, I think there is a more dominant sphere inThis Volcanic Environment from my understandingI found evidence in the Lithosphere system whichIs referred to as the earth as well as liquid rock(lava). At The organ pipes national Park I noticedA lot of lithosphere happening throughout thePark, by the organ pipes, Rosette rock and theTessellated Pavement.However throughout the national park there is are change in the spheres all spheres are noticed but this particular sphere stood out the most for me.
5 (2C) VISUAL LITHOSPHERE ATMOSPHERE BIOSPHERE HYDROSPHERE Because of the Rocks,Minerals and soil forExample the organPipes are all rocky.LITHOSPHEREATMOSPHEREBecause of the gases thatSurround the earthEspecially the pollution fromNear by; for examplethe Calder RacewayBIOSPHEREBecause of the living andNon -living organicMatter example birds andCan be plants.HYDROSPHEREBecause of the watercomponents like forExample Jackson’sCreek.
6 (2D) VISUAL EROSION ROSETTE ROCK HILL Over time, the Rosette rock Has changed. WhenThe eruption occurredIt was millions of yearsAgo the lava dried outAnd stayed this wayYou could see the lavaHas came straightdown from the hill above.The Weathering has gave itSome affect by the windRain and waterThis has caused erosion.Also from the sun it hasDried out and hasDepositioned the RosetteRock.SPIRALRED GUMSSHRUBSGREVILLEAJACKSONS CREEK

8 3B WrittenHABITATSFlora (plants): Some of the plants that I saw throughout the organ pipesNational park were Red gum trees, Shrubs, Bull rush, Grass, Prickly pear, Fungi,Other Trees and Grevillea.Fauna (animals): Some of the animals that I saw throughout the nationalPark were wallabies, birds and fish. Some other animals that I didn’t see butAre at the park are kangaroos, eagles, echidnas, rats, bats and platypuses.ARE ANY OF THE SPHERES MORE DOMINANT??Yes, I do think there is a more dominant sphere, for the same reason as ITalked about earlier I think there is a lot of lithosphere because of the amountOf rock being used by the organ pipes and although we know that it has beenA volcanic area from over many years ago.Although there is a mixture of spheres throughout the park.
9 Tessellated Pavement SUMMARY RED GUMS This environment changes over Time many ways, they includeShrubs over growing on the rocksAnd the rocks become loose overMillions of years.Erosion and weathering getsWorse over the years, with ourClimate always changing.Some animals that live around hereInclude, bats in between the rocks,Lizards and platypus and fish inThe creek.SHRUBSEROSION AND WEATHERINGJACKSONS CREEK

11 Management Impacts Effectiveness (4B) WRITTEN AND VISUAL RUBBISH What ever rubbish, you take into the park must come with you at all times to keep the environment looking its best.This is so that plants and animals can have a healthy environment.BUSH WALKSStick to the path, and not via off to other areas where your not meant to be.This is for your safety and so you can experience changes in the environment without getting hurt.SEATSSo that you can have a rest and a seat to have a listen to all the animals around you.If there were no seats provided people would have to be sitting on the floor.FENCESTo keep you out of places and its for your own safety and to not disturb the animals.Without fences, you would get people destroying the place and entering where they shouldn’t be.PATHSSo you know what way to go, and so people to wreck the plants and disturb the natural environment.Without a path, it wouldn’t be a national park, it will be more like a normal park, no animals would live there.(4B) WRITTEN AND VISUALThere trying to help and not pollute the environment by adding all these things into the nationalPark and allowing people to visit the park as long as they follow the process. Yes I think it is working as the environment there looks all clean and healthy.
12 4c SHORT TERM Expansion of farms And crops can Destroy the park. Weathering and erosionOn the organ pipesContinues.LONG TERMWater restrictionsAnimals become extinctCostsAnother volcanic eruptionPollution gets too much forThe environment.I wouldRecommendTo maintainThe natural feelOf this environmentBy providingBins as some peopleMight not obeyThe rules of notTaking There rubbishHome And dumpingit At the park thereforeWith bins they will at leastPut it in the rubbish pins provided
13 EvaluationDid you gather enough data in the field to complete your report thoroughly? ExplainYes I did gather enough data on the field trip however I could of gained a little more on the ManagementStrategies and found out a bit more stuff about that.What did you enjoy most about the field trip?Being able to get out and explore the organ pipes national park.What did you least enjoy about the field trip?Going back up top of the hillWhat did you like and dislike about writing this report?I liked editing the photos and describing them and I didn’t like doing the table and management strategiesPart.What could you suggest to improve this activity?I'm not sure, it was a pretty good activity overall, it left us with some challenges and made us think of whatWe learnt on this field trip.
