So it's kinda like a break/hole in an otherwise continuous arete? Which forms due to glaciation on both sides of the arete...

Thanks!

Does anyone know what was tested on the Nationals test, and how in depth it was in respective categories? I'm not sure if I need to look into till fabric analysis, stratigraphy, large-scale climate change/feedback, and some of the really obscure stuff. Also, in what format were the questions in?

About 1/2-1/3 of the test had topo maps...but that was the part that I did, my partner did the rest

I didn't think the test was that good. It was pretty easy, until the weird cross between geomapping and topo, that in reality had little to do with glaciers.

Did you take the same test as Div C...? I don't think so, because the coordinators are different (I think), and I know that last year at UCF, the B and C Dynamic Planet tests were different and run by different people.

I haven't really done glaciers (though, I've done Dynamic a few times), but I'm wondering what you mean by the Geomaps/topo cross? To my knowledge, Dynamic can definitely have topo map questions...just not to the same extent as Geomaps or Road Scholar (which I think is a bit deeper). So, just curious?

Well, in Division C, there were a few pages of questions that resembled Road Scholar questions. I can name a few, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to...

Topo is expected, but this was comparing geologic cross sections and different bedrock layers (some of which were deposited by glaciers). It was interesting, and it was only one part of the test.

Hm. I didn't see that part of the test. If it was on the C test, it must've been in the second 1/2-2/3 of the test...

Hm, that sounds like relative age dating (which does admittedly come up in Geomaps as per the rules). To be honest...I mean, at least in Div C I see Rule 4b seems to relate to that a bit.

Sorry if I'm kind of naive with never doing glaciers...but it sounds like to some extent it wasn't THAT unfair (and it seems like some other parts could be related). Either way it's done, and now you'll just study more for the future XD. As for "easy", it's all relative. Maybe I'll just go back to doing other things, but good luck for next year!
