Transcript of Death Valley Presentation

By Oona Oglesby By Kayla Gray Death Valley By Oona Oglesby & Kayla Gray
Period 6
Group Volcanic Activity is An opening in the earth's crust through which molten lava, ash, and gases are ejected Mountain Forming is the geological processes such as tectonic plate movement and volcanic activity, by which mountains are formed. Water: The limestones and sandstones found in the Funeral and Panamint Mountains indicate that this area was the site of a warm, shallow sea throughout most of the Paleozoic Era (542 - 251 million years ago

Mountain Forming: forces gradually fold, warp and fracture the brittle crust. This widespread rock deformation and faulting occurred through most of the Mesozoic Era

Volcanic Activity:Hot, molten material beneath the surface welled up and erupted at these weak points.

There are many reasons Death Valley is unique in comparison to other parks. One thing that is unique about Death Valley is the annual rainfall is 1.5 in. per year. Another unique fact is the highest mountain in the park, Telescope Peak is 11,049 ft. tall. one more cool fact is that the valley is 156 mi. long and 6 mountain ranges surround it. Water Volcanic Activity Mountain Forming Conclusion Water-A chemical compound consisting of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen.

http://www.death-valley.national-park.com/ Introduction
Death Valley was established October 31, 1994
It is located in Southeastern California and parts of Nevada Facts about Death Valley:
1.The climate is arid
2.Summer temperatures frequently exceed 100 Degrees Fahrenheit
3.Contains salt pans which indicate that the area was once a large island sea There are many reasons Death valley is unique in comparison to other parks. One thing that is unique is the rainfall is 1.5 inches. Another fact is that Telescope Peak is the highest mountain in the park, it is 11,049 feet. Death Valley is 156 miles, and six mountain ranges surround it. Water in Death Valley has left many memorable ancient seas and you can clearly see them at the park, but all the seas have disappeared in the ice age 10,000 years ago.

In the future, there will be the same marks that there are to this day because there are no more seas that will be in Death Valley for a LONG time. Death Valley lies between the inter-connected part of the Earth's crust which causes it to fold and warp and fracture the brittle crust. That is also how the Rocky & Sierra Mountain were formed and that is also is how there mountains are be created now In future the way that the mountains are being formed now is how they will form in the future, and there will be many more mountains! Death Valley is arid because it is surrounded by mountains on all sides Unique Facts: Unique Facts: Death Valley used to be a large lake before the Ice Age 10,000 million years ago happened The volcanoes appeared in the northeast of Nevada and then blanketed all around Death Valley with ash and cinder, then a chain of volcanoes like Furnace Creek and Shoshone, started to bury the Black mountains and ancient rocks In the future many new volcanoes will build up because of Death Valley's weak crust, more molten material will come on land and cover the surface. Unique Fact: Recent volcanic activity has been seen in the Northern part of Death Valley at Ubehebe Crater http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Volcanic+activity
