Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

So I'm at a dilemma for this event. Using the resources I have, I can sweep through most tests I've taken, but if it comes to something like the MIT test, I can't do much. What are some good resources for the application based questions in Dynamic Planet?

Can you give an example? Probably the only thing you can study for there is having a thorough understanding of the topics the questions cover.

Using Clapeyron’s equation as guidance and assuming the enthalpy of fusion is similar for all types
of ice, which of the ice types is the most dense ice? Explain your reasoning.

Something like this would confuse me. How would I do this without explicitly knowing which ice type is the most dense?

This is a really random question that has more to do with Thermodynamics honestly

Clapeyron's equation states that the steepness (derivative) of the melting curve on a pressure-temperature graph is directly proportional to the density of ice. Using a phase diagram (?), I think you could locate the densest piece of ice

Ohh ok. That actually makes sense. Thanks for the help.

Do we need to study glaciologists in this event? If so, which ones?

Also, where did you find the MIT invitational test?

Would anyone want to share tests for Dynamic Planet Divison B?

There is already a University of Florida test for divisions B/C on the text exchange and some other B/C full sets on the archive. By the way, do we need to study certain glaciologists for this event? If so, which ones?

Glaciologists are a very small section of what could be asked. Usually, if asked about any glaciologist at all, you will need to know Agassiz. Other than that, I only have information for Robert Boyle, Jean de Charpentier, Gerald Seligman, and Ignaz Venetz, but I have only seen them come up once or twice in all the tests I've taken.

Yes I know. Also you probably don't need to but it may come up.

How much do we need to know for each glacial period? Is it just general information or is there more information to know?

I'm just doing their order from youngest to oldest and whether it was interglacial or glacial.

Can somewhat explain what the difference between altimetry and radar is? In section 3.n. the rules mention that we must know methods of studying glaciers: Altimetry, radar . . . but as far as I can tell radar is a type of altimetry. Does altimetry refer specifically to laser altimetry, while radar refers to radar altimetry? Did I misunderstand something?
