8 What is the Asteroid Belt? C1 $300 http://www.semp.us/_images/biots/Biot443PhotoA.jpg

9 C1 $400 The hypothesis that Earth-like planets are rare because they must be found in this zone in the Galaxy and position in their solar system.

10 What is the Habitable Zone? C1 $400 http://www.star.le.ac.uk/edu/Extrasolar.shtml

11 C1 $500 The Earth’s Eccentricity (elliptical orbit), obliquity (tilt) and precession (wobble) can be correlated to the ice ages and warming periods between

12 C1 $500 What are the Milankovitch Cycles?

13 C2 $100 The Himalayas are an example of this type of plate boundary

14 C2 $100 What is convergent plate boundary? http://courses.unt.edu/hwilliams/GEOG_3350/examreviews/exam1images/Fg17_23c.jpg

15 C2 $200 The spreading on the Atlantic sea floor is a type of this.

21 C2 $500 In the theory of plate tectonics, the plates are part of this, riding on the viscous asthenosphere.

38 C4 $300 What is metamorphic rock? http://www.tuttomosaico.com/2005/images/TS-MARBLE-ALL1.jpg

39 C4 $400 Rock formed from particles of weathered rock, cemented together with minerals. Most fossils are found in this type of rock.

40 C4 $400 What is sedimentary rock? http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/age-dinosaur-bones-2.jpg

41 C4 $500 This convergent boundary is how Mt. St. Helens was formed (because of these two types of plates).

42 C4 $500 What is the result of continental and oceanic plates meeting? http://www.alancolville.com/plates/cascades.jpg

43 C5 $100 This protects us from solar winds.

44 C5 $100 What is the magnetosphere? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomagnetic
