I wanted to chat about mnstr's test for a minute. Two points...
If I recall, the key says there are glaciers on every continent. There are glaciers in Australia? Additionally, solid to gas is sublimation; I don't think the other way around is. Or is that a glacier-specific deal? Thanks.

1. Yes! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:G ... _Australia

2. Yes, this is an error. Gas to solid is apparently called deposition.

I was having some trouble uploading my test last week, but I got it now. Shout out to mnstrviola for checking/proofreading it!

I'll be honest, I admittedly made it harder than my own knowledge and had to go on my gut/ slightly ambiguous internet resources for some of the questions. If you disagree with any of the answers, just tell my why and if it sounds reasonable enough I'll edit the test. It's all a learning experience ;)

Err, upon further research, there are no glaciers on the actual content of Australia. However, there are glaciers in Australian political territory (separate islands).

Also, thank you Shad160, winstonzheng, and possibly IdahoSciGuy for posting tests on the test exchange! :D

It also depends whether you consider Australia proper or Australia/Oceania, which would cover New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, both of which have glaciers.

Papua New Guinea does not have glaciers. The only still glaciated peak is Puncak Jaya in indonesia. :geek:

Okay, thanks. Forgot which side of the border Puncak Jaya was on.
