Just had an invite where the DP test was more like a Geomaps test and there were stimulus questions. They had you read a passage and then answer questions based on the passage. :-|

Hi guys I'm in dynamic planet. I'm interested in glaciers and right now I'm working on the vocabulary. It's very important :)

So I am in this topic and need to learn it in about 2 months. How much information is there to cover? Where should I start on the Sci Oly page? What topic?

SciOly wiki is here, but your best bet is to also go to the Wikipedia glaciers page here. Get as many terms as you can and begin taking tests to find out what you don't know. I personally wouldn't read a textbook, but it can give you a lot of general knowledge as well as fill in gaps in your notes.

According to the rules, glaciers, glaciation, and long-term climate change

All of that pretty much. Not a super broad topic, but you have to know your knowledge well to be successful. Something I have seen my students struggle with is identifying features based on topographic map images, since they aren't really familiar with them.

Thank you but I have some more questions:

on the test, will there be only some vocab terms and what would I need to know in context with maps and things of such...

From the tests I've seen so far and the invitationals I've been to, I've only seen one topographic map. You will need to know all the vocab strongly, but maps aren't the most important thing. That said, there may be maps at some invitationals/regionals/states/nationals, so I'm sure a decent understanding would be helpful. Just don't make it your main focus.

Does that mean that if I study some Quizlet terms, it will be enough...about 100 terms?
