Please complete two separate reports, one for milestone 1 and the second for milestone 2 using the provided rubric, also the screenshots have been provided. Only the report is needed. The website can give you an understanding of the exercises. Please let me know if you have any questions.
NOTE: Not all screenshots have to be used just the ones mentioned in the rubric. Most of the screenshots will not be used.

Find a map that displays a topic related to geostatistics and share it. Upload an image or screenshot of the map making sure to credit the author or creator. You may use a map from the internet, a book, an atlas, or another resource. Explain what the map shows and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the map. This should be a two paragraph though review of the map. Discuss the elements as well as what story the map tells and how well it tell it.

## Every student needs to prepare and verbally present one hazard research report d

Every student needs to prepare and verbally present one hazard research report during the semester. The objective of this activity is for students to get to know one another personally, discuss science in a fun context, and earn science discussion credit. A Hazard Research Presentation is a 5+ minute presentation. It is okay to go over the 5 minute mark by a short period, but please do not present for less than 5 minutes.
The topic of a Hazard Research Presentation needs to fit within one of the topics covered in the course (see schedule below—note that weather events like tornados and hurricanes and fires are NOT a topic in this course—to learn about these please take the dynamic atmosphere course.)
The student should select a major hazardous event that occurred either in their hometown or in a location especially meaningful to the student or their family. It is okay if the event to predates your birth. Please try to chose an event that no one else will present on. For this reason, the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake is off-limits. Please email your instructor for assistance choosing an event, if it is difficult to think up a unique idea.
Please keep in mind that this presentation should include geologic information that is uncovered by researching the event! Please keep your personal account to the first slide, to allow time for the science. Each presentation is worth 10-16 points total, depending on whether you chose a vitual or live option. The LIVE option earns more credit for less effort.
Each presentation should rely on lots of impressive visual photos and figures and maps. Please include a minimum of 5 slides including the following information:
1) Title / Introduction Slide—Discussion of the memorable event. When, What, Where? Tell us the story. Why did you chose this location? What happened? Recollect your personal experience of the event, the personal experience of a family member, and / or reports recorded by witnesses of the event. Please include a map of the region, including the nearest city impacted. (2 points)
2) Slide Two—Tectonic Setting of the chosen region. Where is the site of the hazard located with respect to the nearest plate boundary? Describe the plate boundary—what type of forces are present and what type of faults are most common given that plate boundary type? What is the rate of relative plate motion? Show us a map of the local and regional tectonic setting at this location. (2 points)
3) Geologic Setting—Describe the landforms… Is there a major river, mountain range, lake, volcano, ocean, etc.? How were these landforms created? What are the main rock types mapped in your area? Why are these rocks present and how did those rocks form? What is the long term history of geologic hazards at this location? Be sure to include vivid and information visuals. (2 points)
4) Cause of this Geologic Hazard—what happened to cause the incident and why? Please describe the chain of events from a science concept and geologic standpoint. [For example, if the event was a post-fire debris flow the chain of events probably is: a) the steep slope formed slowly over time, b) fire destroyed vegetation on this slope, c) roots that hold the soil together died off, d) major precipitation occurred, which rapidly coalesced on the ground as surface flow, e) surface water captured all the soil and rapidly moved it down the nearest channel is a massive slurry, e) this debris flow impacted houses and residents downstream.] (2 points)
5) What did geologists learn about geology from this event? How did the community adapt its safety plans since this event? What changes have people and businesses made to address future risk of similar hazards? (2 points)

Answer the following. Please answer and number accordingly. Each should be at least 250 words. Media sources must be cited. Can all be on same pages. Doesn’t need cover page or anything just answers numbered.
1.Current Event related to The Sub-Saharan African Realm
2. Current Event related to The South Asian Realm
3. Current Event related to The East Asian Realm
4. Current Event related to The Southeast Asian Realm
5. Current Event related to The Austral Realm
6.South Asia’s population is likely to be more affected by global climate change than any other world realm.  Do you agree or disagree?  Explain.
7.East Asia is a huge, physically diverse region. In the past, the region has been split between two economic models. Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan practice a model of free-market capitalism. China, North Korea, and Mongolia practice a form of communism influenced by the [ex-]Soviet Union. What do you think are the most important and interesting changes NOW under way in East Asia? How do you see influence and power shifting in the region?
8.What are some of the basic geographic, economic, and social differences between mainland and insular Southeast Asia? What is similar?
9.What are some of the basic geographic, economic, and social differences between mainland and insular Southeast Asia? What is similar?
10. The Pacific Realm: “a great drama of economic and political transformation will play itself out during the 21st century?” What does this mean and do you agree or disagree with the author’s statement?
11. In what ways would a teaching field of interest [or course of study] fit into one of the geography sub-disciplines
