6 How old are the oldest rocks in New York State? (Hint: Oldest Rocks are at the bottom of the bedrock map key; younger as you move up!

7 2. In what landscape region are they located?

8 3. In what landscape region do you live?

9 4. Where is the HEAD of the Hudson River located? 5. Where is the Mouth of the Hudson River located?

10 LocationLatitudeLongitudeLandscape Region Niagara Falls Rochester Mt. Marcy Massena Ithaca 43˚ 10’ N 79˚ W Erie-Ontario Lowlands 43˚ 10’ N 77˚ 40’ W Erie-Ontario Lowlands Adirondack Mountains St. Lawrence Lowlands Allegheny Plateau 44˚ 5’ N 73˚ 55’ W 44˚ 55’ N 74˚ 55’ W 42˚ 25’ N76˚ 30’ W

11 7. Other than the Hudson, name two rivers that flow in NY: 1. Delaware River 2. Susquehanna, 3. Niagara, 4. Mohawk, 5. Genesee 6. St. Lawrence River

12 8. Based on the landscape ( and therefore elevation), which direction is the Genesee River flowing?

13 9. The FINGER LAKES were created after glacial ice melted as it retreated and was contained in narrow valleys. These lakes are dammed by natural sediment deposits located at the downhill end of the lakes. Which direction would you find these dam deposits?

14 10. Based on the Bedrock map, what rock TYPE (not name) is the most abundant in NY? Sedimentary Igneous Metamorphic

15 11. Do you think that this is true for most of the world? Explain why or why not? Sedimentary rocks found as a veneer covering due to Weathering & Erosion Granite makes up most of the continental rocks
