 The latitude of a point in the Northern Hemispere may be determined by measuring the 1 apparent diameter of Polaris *2 altitude of Polaris* 3 distance to the sun 4 apparent diameter of the Sun Distances north or south of the equator are measured in degrees of *1 latitude* 2 longitude 3 parallels 4 meridians What is the latitude of an observer if the altitude of Polaris is 43 degrees? 1 23 degrees North *2 43 degrees North* 3 47 degrees North 4 90 degrees North A person knows the solar time on the Prime Meridian and the local solar time. What determination can be made? ! the date 2 the altitude of Polaris *3 the longitude at which the person is located* 4 the latitude at which the person is located Ship X and Y are sailing along the equator . The difference in local solar time between them is two hours. What is their difference in lonigitude? 1 0 degrees 2 15 degrees *3 30 degrees* 4 45 degrees The diagram (on page 30) represents a portion of the map of Earth's grid system. What is the approximate latitude and longitude of point A? 1 15 degrees N, 30 degrees W 2 15 degrees S, 30 degrees W 3 15 degrees S, 30 degrees E *4 15 degrees S, 30 degrees E* According to the ESRT which city is located nearest to 43 degree North latitude and 76 degree West longitude? 1 Utica 2 Niargra Falls 3 Watertown *4 Syracuse* What is the approximate latitude and longitude of the largest crater? (diagram on page 31) 1 35 degrees N, 111 degrees W 2 39 degrees N, 83 degrees W 3 44 degrees N, 90 degrees W *4 47 degrees N, 104 degrees W* Upon what measurement is Earth's latitude and longitude system based? *1 star angles* 2 magnetism direction 3 gravity intensity 4 apparent solar diameter As a ship crosses the Prim Meridian, the altitude of Polaris is 65 degrees. What is the ship's location? 1 0 degrees longitude,65 South latitude *2 0 degrees longitude,65 North latitude* 3 0 degrees latitude,65 West longitude 4 0 degrees latitude,65 East longitude What is the highest possible elevation represented on this map? (diagram on page 35) 1 39 m 2 41 m *3 49 m* 4 51 m A stream has a source at an elevation of 1,000 m. It ends in a lake that has a elevation of 300 m. If the lake is 200 km away from the source, what is the average gradient of the stream? 1 1.5 m/km *2 3.5 m/km* 3 10 m/km 4 15 m/km What is the temperature at point B? (diagram on page 36) 1 10 degrees C 2 16 degrees C *3 20 degrees C* 4 28 degrees C Which points would probably have the same tempertaure? (diagram on page 36) 1 A and H 2 B and F *3 C and E* 4 D and E Which graph best represents the temperature change along the isotherm from point B to G? (diagram on page 36) answer-4 A countour line that has tiny comblike marks along the inner edge indicates the presence of a 1 mountain 2 steep cliff 3 river valley *4 depression in the ground* What is the air temperature at position A? (diagram on page 37) 1 18 degrees C 2 21 degrees C *3 32 degrees C* 4 24 degrees C The most likely direction of heat flow is from (diagram on page 37) 1 F to A 2 B to D 3 C to E *4 E to F* The greatest temperatur gradient exsists between (diagram on page 37) 1 A and D *2 B and D* 3 C and E 4 E and F The average temperature gradient between points x and y is closest to (diagram on page 37) 1 0.5 degree per meter *2 2.0 degrees per meter* 3 3.0 degrees per meter 4 1.5 degrees per meter
