Sediment Extra Credit

 

111 Physical Geology Extra Credit +10 points on your lecture exam.

  1. Collect a pint-size or larger Ziploc™ bag of sediment from a beach, river, lake, or desert environment. Be sure your name is written on the bag in permanent ink. Note that it is illegal to collect from national parks and most state parks and recreation areas.
  2. Provide detailed information on where the sediment was collected.

    For example:

    a. 100 ft south of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, about 5 feet up on the beach from the ocean.

    b. about ½ mile south of Exit 30 off of I-24 in Kentucky from the middle of Sinking Creek.

  3. I’d prefer sand-size sediment but gravel- to silt-size is also OK. NO clay-size muck. If you don’t know the difference between gravel, sand, silt, and clay, check out the Sedimentary Rocks and Processes notes.
  4. Do I get to choose which test the +10 pts are applied? No. If you turn in the sediment between the start of classes now and the date for Exam #2, you can designate which exam gets the points. But you must designate how the points are "routed" prior to taking Exam #2. If you turn in the sediment between Exam #2 and the date for Exam #3, the points will be applied to Exam #3. And so on. The points can not be applied to the comprehensive Final Exam or any lab exams.
  5. The final day to turn in sediment for Exam #4 will be the day that exam is given.
