surface.. The temperature of the core is estimated to be 9,800 degrees Fahrenheit, or about the same temperature as the sun. The diameter of the inner core is 758 miles, or roughly the driving distance from Oklahoma City to Chicago. Based on the way certain earthquake waves are unable to pass through, the inner core is believed to be solid, and composed of iron, nickel, and possibly some precious metals. oklahoma oil The outer core is composed of liquid iron and nickel. responsible for generating Earth's magnetic field.

The art is at the core of this resource, but you have to know its surroundings to understand it fully. The Patience S. Latting Northwest Library is part of the Metropolitan Library System; it opened in May 2012. Details like oil derrick skylights, route 66 signage, the cedar plank ceiling, and incredible vistas underscore a deep connection to all that makes Oklahoma wonderful. Now we can go to the very most central part: about the art! This solid layer of earth is the largest continuous region of the earth, and is believed to be composed of large amounts of silicon, magnesium, and oxygen. This region is under tremendous pressure and heat. Very little else is known about the mantle because it cannot be directly observed. http://bit.ly/WWNuBa The upper mantle has two main zones. The asthenosphere is the deep lower zone; it is highly viscous due to temperature and pressure. This layer slowly flows in convection circles. core asthenosphere lithosphere The lithosphere is the cooler upper zone, consisting of the top of the mantle and the crust. It is rigid and brittle, so it breaks apart more easily than the asthenosphere. These broken sections form tectonic plates. subduction, n: pushed another plate. below of a plate is when the edge down The cooler plate material is brought deep within the earth, then pushed back up as it warms. As the plates separate, new material comes up to fill in the gap. mantle, n: anything that covers completely or envelops Just like the earth recycles land, artists can recycle old materials into art. 2. mantle.

The continental crust is an average 20 to 30 miles thick, whereas the oceanic crust is typically 3 to 6 miles. The crust 'floats' on the mantle. Temperature increases as depth increases.

Because of differences in temperature, this layer reaches a height of 5.5-7.4 miles at the poles, and a height of 9.9-10.5 miles at the equator. In the layer above the tropopause, air gets warmer as height increases. In the layer below the tropopause, air gets cooler as height increases. Most of the water in the atmosphere is located below this layer. Most mixing of the air from turbulence caused by the earth's surface, happens in the troposphere and tropopause. Pilots try to fly just above this layer. Pilots fly in the stratosphere so they can be above the hard weather of the troposphere. Also, due to lower temperatures and air density, planes get better fuel burn. This allows the plane to travel longer and farther. The 'ozone layer,' or the highest concentration of ozone molecules, is located within the stratosphere. UV radiation breaks down oxygen molecules into single atoms... Chlorine atoms can get into the atmosphere when we use chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs. CFCs are commonly used as propellants in aerosol cans. A single CFC molecule can take as long as 80 years to disappear from the stratosphere. Even though international regulations are now cutting back on use of CFC's, our atmosphere will continue to be affected by them for many more decades. o F Altitude : This means less ozone is formed.

Like the tropopause is the border where the troposphere and stratosphere meet, there are areas where science and history meet.

There is so much space between gas atoms that they cannot transmit heat. High levels of solar radiation are absorbed in the thermosphere, resulting in a temperature that increases as altitude increases. Based on the amount of solar activity, temperatures can reach 2730 degrees Fahrenheit. The thermosphere contains the ionosphere, an area with a high concentration of electrically charged atoms, or ions. This charge enable radio waves transmitted from a tower to refract, or be bounced back down, to be received by your radio. the international space station is located in the middle of the thermosphere, usually 200-240 miles above the surface of Earth. Radio wave refraction occurs at an angle. the exosphere is sometimes considered a part of space, since there is no clear boundary. particle collisions are so rare that some are able to escape earth's gravitational pull tem the exosphere ends 620 miles above Earth's surface, halfway to the moon. alt of re sa the sta re atu per ys me ess rdl ga de itu Do you want to learn even more about the Faducci sculptures by visiting other places in Oklahoma? Oklahoma is located above the Mid-Continent Region oil reserve, which also includes states like Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. Early inhabitants of Oklahoma discovered oil and used it as medicine for
themselves and their animals. As time progressed, it was realized these 'health spas' were actually aboveground indicators of oil reserves. Oil wells were drilled, and several companies were formed, but the oil industry didn't take off until 1899 when a railroad connected Bartlesville to Neodesha, KS. This created a viable market for the large amounts of oil that were being discovered. The Oklahoma Oil Boom era lasted until 1950, when reserves finally began to deplete. Another boom came in the 1970s, though by 1982, oil production fell again. As oil companies began focusing on overseas production, have moved out of Oklahoma.

Remains were first discovered in the panhandle of Oklahoma. In Faducci's representation, the dinosaur wears red tennis shoes. A line of small iridescent stones trace its spine. Books featuring representations of other state symbols are falling from its claws. Lucille Mulhall is said to be America's first cowgirl. Born in St. Louis but raised in Oklahoma, she went on to compete in roping and riding competitions against men. She is holding books written by Oklahoma authors, including Joy Harjo and S.E. Hinton.

Old fur coats are cut into bear silhouettes to form a commentary on how growing urban areas are displacing animals from their natural habitats. These fish are made out of plastic bottles, which are then illuminated with a vibrant LED display to remind viewers to recycle. The artist carved away portions of old books to reveal a lonely landscape. "Mountains of disused knowledge" and the books that contain them eventually erode away into irrelevance and nothingness. 10b After a fire destroyed many books in an architecture library, what books could be salvaged were upcycled into a new circulation desk.

How does the artist use different shapes and different colors?

How will light affect the appearance of the mosaic? convection circle: the distance light has to travel through our atmosphere is the smallest at noon. As light travels, the molecules and particles in our atmosphere scatter shorter wavelengths. Blue and violet have short wavelengths, so they are scattered throughout our atmosphere. This is why our sky seems to be blue. As Earth continues to rotate, the distance from the sun to the ground increases. As the day increases, light has to travel through more of our atmosphere. The short blue wavelengths are scattered so much, the eye can't detect them anymore. Longer wavelengths, like yellow, orange, and red, are not scattered as easily.
So when the sun is setting and light is having to travel through the most amount of atmosphere, the sky takes on an orange, yellow, and red appearance.

sense of
spatial
visualization,
or being able to
mentally
manipulate 2D/3D
figures.

Angles can be an
important aspect of an
artwork, where changing
the angle of an object can
change the realism of an
object or even influence the meaning or mood of a work. vertex 0 o 90 o 45 o angle less than 90 acute right note the symbol that goes with it. o o 180 o 135 o obtuse between 90 -180 o o straight exactly 180 o reflex between 180 and 360 o o 360 o vertex full angle Naming an Angle C B A AB and CB create B,
because B is the vertex.
It can also be named ABC
or CBA.
The vertex point must always
be the middle letter. Points A and B create AB. Points B and C create CB. When two lines intersect, special angles are created. A B C D E Adjacent angles share a common side and a common vertex, but do not overlap.

When adjacent angles are created from a line intersection, the sum of the pair of angles will always equal 180 . These are called supplementary angles.

Complementary angles are two angles whose sum of measures add to 90 .

When two lines intersect, two pairs of vertical angles are created. Vertical angles are congruent, or they have the same measure.

The sum of the four angles created by two lines intersecting will always equal 360 .
