yes, it is like oceanography, except this year it's on earthquakes and volcanoes instead of oceans. and it will prolly be as in depth as oceanography was.

dynamic planet actually rotates every two years

rivers -> glaciers -> oceanography -> earthquakes/volcanoes

you can get pretty in-depth with volcanoes. same goes for earthquakes. I would expect you to see diagrams like this on tests: Image


maybe you would identify parts of it, or they might ask you whats going on (such as if the plates are pulling apart or pushing together)

i've never actually competed in earthquakes/volcanoes because it was last an event before i was in SO (rivers was in when i started). maybe some SO alum know more about this event (when it was last an event)

i figure it will be similar to glaciers or oceans, the last time it was here was before i joined, but they usually cover whats mentioned in the rules, and have a good test over general knowledge with some diagrams and some more in depth questions, so it should be similar to dynamic planet the past few years

As far as i can tell, you can bring resources, including textbooks and binders. At least, you can if its anything like glaciers.

I believe that last year they only allowed a double sided piece of paper. I'm not quite sure though since I didnt do the oceans event. My coach asked me to make the cheat sheet for oceans last year. I'm probably going to do dynamic planet this year because way back in 7th grade we did a whole chapter on Earthquakes and Volcanoes and i was really good at it and thought it was really cool

it depends how they do it, because i know you could use binders both years for glaciers, and then a binder the first year and sheet of paper the second for oceanography

If people complained about the 1 piece of paper for oceans maybe theyd change it back, but probably theyd make a sheet of paper again (which kinda sucks, cause after listing the Richter and Modified Mercali scales, there's not gonna be a lot of room for stuff)

i think they'll do a binder the first year, then a sheet the next, because its usually the same people that do it each year, unless they graduate, so you learn it the 1st year, and then have to do most of it from memory the next

I really hope they allow binders. The single sheet of paper last year was a pain. :evil:

I also hope they do binders however both me and my partner are very knowledgeable about earthquakes and volcanoes so we will do just fine without binders. This will be the last year that both me and my partner for this event will be doing science olympiad so the whole learn the first year and do it from memory the next doesnt really work out for my team.

Still though, when you have the scales (richter and modified mercali) which theyre bound to ask stuff on, theres not much room to write stuff.
