I came across a question like that at Regions one year... Except I did know what it was asking about, so I said said "yes." I've never been sure if it was correct, though, since we don't get the tests back.

Since this is starting to die down...

1. What does CTD in a CTD device stand for?
2. Describe the sequence of atoll formation. Who proposed it?
3. What is a tombolo?

Erm... Sorry... Is it a site-wide issue, or are the hide tags not working only for me? But I can see it if I quote, so should be fine.

All correct. Your turn!

It's a site-wide thing. The only way to fix it is to go into your User Control Panel, and then go to Board Preferences. At the bottom, there'll be a box. It should say "scioly_old." Change that to "scioly," click Save, and they should work. It also changes the side that the user information is on and the font. The information is alright, but I personally despise the font.

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the font, but I definitely got used to it.

1) If a wind moves parallel to the equator, moving towards the east in the northern hemisphere, which way will it curve to(Equator or Poles)? Why?
2) What is Coriolis acceleration?
