The rules are most likely different.

Okay, thanks. Like, do you need to know what rogen moraines and H,N, and R channels?

I would learn about them

Everything from 2014 carries over except periglacial environments (aka permafrost and all that stuff). Unfortunately, some Dynamic Planet tests step a little outside of the bounds set by the rules.

Will we need to know the glacial stages (wisconsinian, illionoian)?

1. Regarding only using 4 sheets, What does no annotations affixed mean? The instructions are vague, I don't understand if we can add our own things like pop-outs/glue-on?
2. Why do we need calculators?

Thanks,

i am having trouble finding the correct answer for it but cant find it.

Same here. I can't find that or part m with ice sheet modeling.

I think it means "does wet(wet,dry,bare rock and sediment) bed rock help lubricate the glacier?" which is true. but i am still unsure about the

I just found this on Wikipedia's Ice stream page:
"Most ice streams have some water at their base, which lubricates the flow. The type of bedrock also is significant. Soft, deformable sediments result in faster flow than hard rock."
And that's all it had, but it may be a start.

1. Okay, I'm not sure, but I think it's where the sheet protectors themselves can't have notes.
2. We need calculators to calculate like ablation and accumulation zones, I think.

On second note, could you elaborate what you mean by calculating ablation and accumulation zones?

Does anyone know what the range of scores was for Dynamic at the MIT invitational?

I don't know the range of scores, but I can tell you that the highest score was 80.5. So try to beat that
