What are hypsometric curves, or can someone lead me to a good source?

What are some suggestions or resources to look into for the mathematical portion of this event? I've been having a lot of trouble with identifying the most salient equations and consistently miss the most points in those sections.

Encyclopedia Britannica is kind of Wikipedia, though you cannot edit it. It is meant to be used for students and therefore it usually summarizes the topic for you. .edu sites are from Universities and are generally more reliable. I recommend http://serc.carleton.edu/mathyouneed/hy ... index.html.

I actually don't know any on the top of my head. Try going to Soinc?

The consensus appears to be that such a resource (compiled, anyway) doesn't exist. My thought was there might be a lab manual used in undergraduate laboratories that contain these sorts of activities all together...appears not. The advice I was given was to look up different quantitative activities separately on the Internet. :|

A fair bit of the math is basic rate algebra. There are probably earthquake equations, I suppose.

I am new to dynamic planet so I am wondering if you know good links and places to start.

Some math topics:
Isostatic Adjustment/equilibrium
Viscosity and velocity calculations
Movement rates of plates
Earthquake magnitudes and other things
Some more things for another day.

I'm in division B, and movement rates of plates has popped up on every single test I've taken at a tournament this year (i think earthquake magnitudes came up once, but i'm not sure).

Hey does anyone know if glaciers remove land or increase land mass? Because I thought they eroded the land but according to the test on the test exchange the leave behind more land.
