because this method was developed to enable the most accurate and impasionate evaluation of the situation.
Type your answer here... They all knew that the structure of the DNA was like a twisted ladder.
Mapping of the ocean floor led to the discovery of the mid-ocean ridge system where new oceanic crust is formed, confirming Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift.
Scientists found out about normal polarity and reverse polarity. Normal polarity is when the North Pole is south and the South Pole is north and reverse polarity is the opposite. The magnetic bands are different colors for normal and reverse polarity. This can cause sea-floor spreading.
the answer is u smell crap the real answer is they use steps in a process so they can repeat it again
scientists use the scientific method so that they can understandwhy and how things happen such as an bean, plant, the sun andothers
Scientists use the scientific method to help them prevent hugemistakes that they can't fix. It helps them get an accurate answer to a question.
oceanographers DarkFoxy: and marine biologists or is that the same thing.... well either way its another term
The general study of the ocean (its form, environment, and living creatures) is done by an oceanographer , often called "marine scientist." The specific study of living things in the ocean comes under the purview of a "marine biologist" and there are various specific studies of flora and fauna. …An "oceanographer" or "marine scientist" studies the ocean (itsform and the life within it). The science is called oceanography, oceanology, or marine science. (MORE)
Oceanographers study the ocean and its creatures while marine biologists study the animals in all types of water.
Political Scientists are just like any other scientist, except that they study politics. They use things like official records to trace patterns in what they're studying. They use different types of historical documents as well. They also use secondary sources like scholarly journal articles, survey… research, statistical analysis, case studies and model building. Anything that will show them information about politics over the course of a certain amount of time will be a good method for a political scientist to follow. (MORE)
Paired bands (paired either side of the mid oceanic ridges) of rocks with magnetic reversals which indicate that the sea floor has spread away from the ridge. see link below Alternating bands
An EEG can be used to monitor the brainwaves during sleep, the 4 different waves are beta, alpha, theta, and delta. Beta waves are more common during waking hours, as well as REM sleep (hence: paradoxical sleep), alpha waves typically occur during the period before light sleep, IE drowsiness. Theta …mostly occurs during light sleep. Delta is the typical wave type for deep sleep. (MORE)
it dont do any thing so .... Way to go man, helped a lot ð
It helps them determine the frequency of shifts in the magnetic orientation of the Earth, and initially led to the confirmation of seafloor spreading at the mid-ocean ridges.
They've found lots of things, but geologically the most significant find of the 20th century was probably the discovery of the volcanically active Mid-Atlantic Ridge which led to further studies and discoveries indicating the processes of plate tectonics.
Because it helps map the ocean floor and have a better picture of it. Because it helps map the ocean floor and have a better picture of it
They send down a sound wave (whose velocity they know) and measure how much time it takes for it to return. Velocity=Distance/time Distance=Velocity*time They divide the distance by 2 (since the sonar wave has to return as well.) They make thousands of these measurements to make a map of the oce…an floor based on these distances. (MORE)
because it's hard for scientists to be able to get clear pictures down at that level, 1000's of feet below the surface because the pressure is so high, it's so far down, and it's so dark. when sonar came out scientists were able to know what was down there without actuallly taking pictures. It's lik…e with a bat. The bat doesn't actually have to see what's in front of it to know what's down there because, by using it's sonar, it's able to sense the vibrations off of the objects. (MORE)
sonar they use a sonar LIDAR or Sonar a sonar SONAR sends out ultrasonic sounds to the bottom of the sea and analyses how they bounce back sonar Sonar. with sonar by using soundwaves that create a image based off of the height of the object Bathymetric sonar and LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging). …Side-scan sonar A sonar (MORE)
okay so clearly I'm on here because I don't know the answer so willsomeone please answer this question.....
We look at the ocean floor to study the mantle because the ocean floor is made from rocks that were once part of the mantle but have be changed. These changes can be undone to a certain degree, and can allow us to study at the very least the major changes of the shallow mantle.
We dont have the technology to do so because it is to dark and deep.
The study of oceanography allows scientists to study the oceanfloor and sea life. They study the floor using instruments such asa deep sea exploration vehicle.
Scientists use the scientific method when there's a problem thatcan't be solved. Because it is a logical, orderly way to solve aproblem or answer a question.The scientists follow the steps ofscientific method. 1.Observation 2.Gather info about the problem3.Formulate a hypothesis 4.Experiment 5.Recor…d data based on theexperiment 6.Formulate conclusions 7.Report research methods (MORE)
in cash flow statement using indirect method actual net profit from income statement is adjusted for non cash items to arrive at actual cash from operating activities.
A Hydrologist studies the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and an Oceanographer studies the ocean, either of whom might find themselves contributing to studies of waves and currents.
The most common method use to detect planets involve measuring the change in light intensity of a star. By observing and measuring the light output of a star over a period of time, regular, periodic fluctuations in the intensity of the light output can indicate a planet orbiting the star. As the pla…net pass in front of the start, the measurable light is less. (MORE)
While studying the ocean floor, scientists found alternating bandsof magnetism. Each band is magnetized with a polarity that isopposite the surrounding bands.
When social scientists study rates of homosexuality in a population what do they primarily use as their method of measurement?
what measurement is needed? its simply a number of people that are homosexuals. a percentage of the total population i suppose Response Its generally anywhere from 4-12% of a country's population. For the U.S. its about 10.1%
echo location is used to study, and map the ocean floor. submarines and camaras can also be used.
Most scientists in the world use the scientific method because it is the best way to ensure that an experiment is done correctly and that the results can be reproduced.
There are many various factors a Scientist can study in the ocean. A Marine Biologist would study marine life, how marine life acts, etc. When your studying the ocean, it's like your study a whole nother earth. Factors like temperture, reactions, sound travel and ancient history are also popular for… scientific research of the ocean. (MORE)
The reason why is we can't tunnel to the center so we have to use the indirect methods to study the interior.
There are a couple of instruments or methods they use. They are : drogues, Argo float, flow meters, Doppler Acoustic Current Meters, satellites, radioactive chemicals, and rubber ducks.
The study is referred to as Oceanography; I would think the scientist would be, perhaps, an Oceanographer.
it's molten. Meaning that any metals plastics or organics would melt instantly. so they can't do it any other way, it's too hot.
Indirect measurement is a technique that uses proportions to find ameasurement when direct measurement is not possible.
They used this method to make sure all data is 100% ture, and so the final results stay the same.
They send down a sound wave (whose velocity they know) and measurehow much time it takes for it to return. Velocity=Distance/time Distance=Velocity*time They divide the distance by 2 (since the sonar wave has to returnas well.) They make thousands of these measurements to make a map of theocean f…loor based on these distances. (MORE)
Political scientists use a variety of social science methods. Broadly, there are three categories: qualitative, quantitative, and philosophical methods. The first two are primarily analytical and they focus on observing, describing, or predicting a political process. Some examples of qualitative… and quantitative methods include surveys, factor analysis, statistical inference, and mathematical modelling. In philosophical methods, the political scientists tries to construct an explanation of a political process from theory instead of primarily data. (MORE)
because the coldness,water pressure and deepness of the ocean floor the info wasnt accurate because its hard to observe under those conditions
I belive it was dropping a small stone tied to a Very long string and seeing how much it went down, then it would be that deep, (if the rock dropped 3 feet it is 3 feet deep there)
i think the ducks went to a scientist house and the scientist ask the duck '' do you wanna help me do a experiment with me or for me?
-- The nucleus of the atom compared to the size of the whole atom is similar to a bunch of grapes compared to the size of Texas. -- If you want to SEE an atom, you would need to shine light on it and then magnify the image formed by the light that reflects from it ... exactly what you have to… do if you want to see your hand or your car. Unfortunately, the wavelength of your visible light is something like 70,000,000,000 times bigger than the atom, so it's like trying to feel the shape of a mosquito with a feeler that's 40,000 miles wide. -- You could use light with shorter wavelengths, but then the photons of light would carry enough energy to strip the electrons away from the atom, and the act of looking at it would change what it looks like. -- And finally, you'd need a microscope with a magnification of something like 100,000,000,000,000 to make an atom look the size of a mosquito.

Rosalind Franklin & Willins were the first to spot light on the DNA structure by using the technique known asd X-Ray crystallography
The four methods that scientists use to study homologies include using HSPs in Viterbi algorithm, bi-directional Viterbi algorithm, biased hidden Markov models and using HSPs to position target regions. They also use Data sets which include Training data set of human genes and Validation and testing… data sets of homologous genes. (MORE)
The first thing that you have to do is ensure that everything is clear from the room, since sanders typically create quite a mess. Then you'll need to rent a drum and edge sander. Lastly you'll be alternating between the two sanders depending on what section of the floor you'll be working on.
I think they dropped a waterproof thing in the ocean and it sent sonar and the sonar detected items
To study earth's interior, geologist often rely on indirect methodssuch as evidence from seismic waves, not fossils.
