    implies, freshly dyed jeans are loaded into large washing machines and tumbled with stones. Adding pumice stones gives the additional effect of a faded or worn look. The pumice abrades the surface of the jeans like sandpaper, removing some dye particles from the surfaces of the yarn. Pumice has been used since the introduction of stone washed jeans in the early 1980s. However, stone washing with pumice has some severe drawbacks.

    The volcanologists of today monitor changes in levels of seismic activity from the observatory on Vesuvius, because they know that the “increase of activity in the deep storage of magma causes both earth tremors and volcanic eruptions.” Scientists, through measuring seismic activity, can predict an approaching eruption months in advance. They also know that the activity of Vesuvius is recurrent, and that the “longer the intervals between eruptions, the greater the eventual explosion will be.“ The

    Introduction In the week one lab, members of the class were to classify six unknown rocks into one of the three rock types: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. We were then to use that knowledge, along with other features of the rocks, to determine the rock name. This paper will identify each of the six samples based off the observations of each sample in the lab. The paper will go on to discuss the main properties of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock. This paper will conclude with

    Understanding Volcanoes The Earth has a long history of volcanic activity. Currently, there are approximately 1,500 active volcanoes worldwide (USGS, 2014). Whether erupting on the Earth’s surface or deep in the ocean, volcanic activity can result in devastating natural disasters. A thorough background regarding volcanoes and their formation mechanisms, historical data, and damaging impact from previous eruptions is needed in order to understand the complicated science behind volcanoes.

    Mono Basin Volcanism The last basin in the Basin and Range before the Sierra Nevada Mountain range is the Mono Basin. The Mono Basin consists of landforms such as the Mono-Inyo Craters, Black Point, Negit Island, Paoha Island, Mono Lake, Devils Punch Bowl, Panum Crater, and some others (Hamburger et al; 2004). All of these landforms were created by volcanism. Actually, the Mono Basin is in one of the most volcanically active places in the world (Forest Service; 2004). Paoha Island, Negit

    There are three different types of rocks. We should know about • Igneous • Sedimentary • Metamorphic Sedimentary rocks are made of fragments of other rocks; igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary. They are made when an older rock erodes or weathers to produce sediment, for instance sand on a beach. The sediment is then compacted and cemented together to produce a rock. Sedimentary rocks can also contain individual grains of minerals which have been eroded out of older rocks. Igneous rocks are formed

    For more than 100 years, scientists have sought to unravel the remarkable story of Crater Lake’s formation. Before Crater Lake came into existence, a cluster of volcanoes dominated the landscape. This cluster, called Mount Mazama (for the Portland, Oregon, climbing club the Mazamas), was destroyed during an enormous explosive eruption 7,700 years ago. So much molten rock was expelled that the summit area collapsed during the eruption to form a large volcanic depression, or caldera. Subsequent smaller
