Exam 1 Review Session Geology 135 David Johnson Wednesday September 9th 730 930 Room 138 Tuesday September 1 2015 1St day of autumn September 1St 1st day of autumn September 23rel 002 Results of interaction 9 Regions are made based on these 2 factors 0 Human societies 0 Natural physical environment Functional environment 0 tangible piece of evidence of human involvement and human activity 0 Someone makes it people can find out its purpose way into the future Regions must representthe great clusters of mankind deBlij 0 He wants to show how two different regions are different from each other because of specific reasons and how they are also similar Transition Zones where realms meet 0 There is change 9 this leads to the creation of different zones ft 9 function of time these zones change over time and change shape 0 Ex a map of Africa that shows where there are Muslim people 0 North of the transition zone has mostly people who are Muslim 0 South of the transition zone has few people who are Muslim and much more with many other religions o In the transition zone at the North end there is more areas of those like the areas above the transition zone and near the Southern part of the African transition zone there are areas that are similar to the areas below the transition zone 0 There are areas where the transition zone is skinny and some areas where it is very wide This is important because this zone is one of the biggest areas of conflict in the World conflict between MuslimnonMuslims There are groups of people in this area which interpret Islam in not so good ways and in different ways than other people in these areas 0 Sudan is not Sudan anymore 9 it is divided up into Sudan and South Sudan 9 because in the south part of the transition zone the people are mostly not Muslim and the northern part have many Muslim people Product of mental perception 0 Midwest or Corn belt 9 what we believe these look like or what they consist of Boundanes o completely obvious boundaries that do not require you to have any other knowledge besides just looking at the map ex coast lines borders of a large desert o Determined by set criteria borders are set by set criteria not just the way it is on a map ex core regions Character 0 Formal uniform region 0 Homogeneity 0 Generally established because everything in that area is roughly the same Cultural Physicalnatural o Sameness o Functionalnodal region 0 The region is divided up into how the region functions most usedpopulated areas are in the center less useful areas are farther away from the center Ex Von Thunen Rings Defined by activities City suburbs hinterland putting things into crates and being able to move it from truck to train to ship globalized the commercial world ex Australia becoming a much larger wine producer due to containerization Thursday September 3 2015 0000 0 Most light that hits the Earth from the sun hits the oceans water 0 Projections to depict you can t have it all THESE ARE MAPS 0 Wrap different 2D surfaces around the globe the kind of map we make depends on how we wrap the flat piece of paper it touches the globe and it is called tangency surface is tangent or touches the Earth 0 Equal areas faithfully reproduced on the map but smaller 0 Equal distances 0 Equal shapes conformal shape is going to look like the real shape Ex square country looks like a square an area like Greenland looks like Greenland on the map 0 Problem we cannot have all of these together at the same time on a 2D su ace o No map will ever be 100 perfect 0 Types 0 Cylindrical Mercator Proiection tangent at equator Made by wrapping imaginary piece of paper around the Earth and it touches the Earth at the equator Lightbulb in middle of the globe projects light in all directions and shadows are formed onto the piece of paper of the countries Most common of the cylindrical projections however not the most perfect projection they don t all end up in a straight line You couldn t project the north pole because it would become infinitely big because it is at the top of globe the guy who made this bent the image to fit onto the piece of paper The closer you are to where the imaginary piece of paper is tangent to the globe the more accurate it is going to be tangent to the Earth at just the place where someone wants to go there has been a rotation of the Earth 0 Conic standard parallel latitude of tangency Globe that is transparent with a lightbulb in the middle and projected onto a different type of paper coneshaped it is laid down over the globe and touches the Earth in a circle shape could be a wider cone or a more narrow cone Standard parallel if you put the cone down straight on top of the globe at the same axis it will be perfectly tangent at one latitude line The place where the paper is tangent to the globe you want it as close to the standard parallel as possible closer to the standard parallel the more accurate the map is o Polyconic multiple standard parallels Many cones Ex 5 cones 9 5 parallels Space between the parallels are not as accurate as the data right on the standard parallels More parallels the more lifelike the map will be 0 Azimuthal tangent at a point Sitting on the pole usually North Pole All longitude lines radiate out from that and the latitude lines are concentric circles around the pole If you were doing something at the North pole this is the type of map you would want to use Technically a degenerate version of a conic map You don t have to center the cone on the pole you could make it tangent anywhere you want it 0 Area Cartogram a mapoid 03 Governments 0 Nations 0 Entities of affinity being drawn towards something Something we feel ourselves drawn towards o Historically nations mean people of a common birth In the past if you were saying nation you were saying what tribe you were a part of 0 Generally possess a functioning common government branched into statehood Ex United States is usually considered a Nation and State technically not really true 0 Increasingly there has been an acceptance of a common credo or proposition USA is the first place to do that Idea that to be part of our nation you have to have a common belief 9 gaining momentum 0 States 0 Political entities USA Germany 0 In order to be a state you have to have a a functioning government and b somebody else has to recognize you as a state 0 Stateless nations places where the people want to be a state and feel they have the entity of affinity but no one recognizes them as a state Ex Palestine Kurds not Arabic consider themselves a country but not one recognizes them as one 0 Didn t used to be states but the Treaty of Westphalia ended one of the series of wars in Europe 9 European governments agreed that there would be something called a state and it would be separate from the King or Emperor 9the person was originally considered the body of the whole counUy Highlighted in is something you should know for the test Don t forget there is a review session the night before the test on Wednesday
