I uploaded a Dynamic Planet test I made relevant to this year's topic :)

EDIT: fixed the test, no longer another copy of the key.
Thanks for the test but do you have the key for the multiple choice? The answer key you uploaded only had the short answers

I'm posting here to remind myself to write up a couple of tests based on what I've seen this year. If I still haven't uploaded something by the end of the week, someone please yell at me to get to work :)


EDIT: So, just posting here was pretty much the motivation I needed. I wrote the test today, but creating the answer key is one hell of a tedious task. I'll be done soon

Does anyone know how much sea level would rise if all the glaciers in the world today melted?
It was in our regionals exam, and I couldn't find a single solid answer on the internet.

I have seen ~120 feet on many sites, however this is not constant, but I don't think it would be right for a test to ask for a specific number unless one had been agreed upon by the hydrology/glaciology community.

With questions like these, test proctors should accept any answer within a reasonable range.

How much stress have people been seeing on periglacial landforms?

The accepted value is 70 m, as far as I have seen.

As for periglacial processes, I have only seen questions related to permafrost thus far. Not to say other questions may not come up, but that is what I have seen so far.

I've seen at least 7-10 questions (Invitationals and regionals) but they weren't exceptionally difficult...such as definition-of-a-term and name-the-picture kinds of questions. My partner and I came across gelifluction, pingos, taliks, and talus slope.

I just posted the Frankenmuth Invitational Dynamic Planet test on the test exchange, hopefully it is helpful.
