It's not really possible to answer that, as there are so many. Itis also dependent on your definition of mineral. Some are quartz,feldspar, and horneblende.
From space they look like saw blades or spiral galaxies with holesin their centers. On the ground they are similar to ordinary stormsexcept there is little or no lightning and the winds are stronger.Severe coastal flooding may result from the storm surge.
Puerto Lopez de Micay, a small town near the coastline of western  Colombia, may be a new contender for the wettest inhabited place in  the world.  Between April 1960 and February 2012, an average annual rainfall  of just over 507 inches has been recorded at the weather  observation station...

Depends on the location of the forest.   Gray Wolf: The iconic predator of the American North. Wolf  populations have sprung back in recent years after decades of  decline.     Jaguar: The largest feline in the Americas, the jaguar once ranges  into the Southern US. Now its range is...
Taylor Swift's telathon for Haiti raised $58 million dollars.
It would not be here according to science the sun will is come a red giant and overcome the earth and destroy it.
Kimberlite pipes are typically quarried using open pit mines.
Minerals crystallize out from the water surrounding the grains andact as cement.
That's a very broad description. Some places have a lot of ice andsnow in winter, others have it most or all of the time. Nothingwill grow under permanent ice and snow. In the tundra, where onlythe top couple of inches of soil thaws in the brief summer, youtend to get only simple mosses. In places...
A volcanic crater is a generally circular shaped depression.
According to the  United States Geological Survey, more than 3 million earthquakes  happen each year. That's one earthquake every 11 seconds!  Obviously, many of these earthquakes have little or no effect on  human civilization - most are too weak to notice, and many others  occur in completely...
Radium is a decay product of uranium and is constantly being  produced. U-238 has a half-life of about 4.5 billion years, so  there's still quite a bit left of the original amount on Earth.
ya it may be possible that by the using role scoper results in soil  erosion
Hot Ice, Sodium Acetate, is made from vinegar and baking soda.
They sent supplies like food water clothing etc
This is due to different soil compositions.
Particles tend to move faster, further apart and gain more energy.
It didn't really have a name, but there had been no real scientifictheory and most people's ideas were based on stories from theBible.
This question alludes to a common misconception. Warm and cold air  do not have magical properties that let on "hold" more water vapor  than the other. The answer lies in the dew point temperature (DPT).  At 90 degrees a parcel of air can have a DPT of 90 degrees thus  allowing a greater volume...
Well lets see there is black carbon,carbon dioxide emissions and draining rivers if you need help with anything else don't hesitate to ask
the area around the Pacific Ocean. It has a port.
  == By who lives in it. ==     Examples:     Consumers, primary producers, decomposers, omnivores, carnivores, herbivores.  
It can if exposed to the requisite conditions and circumstances of  weathering and erosion.
   High Temp:  26.1°F *      Low Temp:  10°F      Average Temp:   16.9°F  (  24 )     Dewpoint:   4.4°F  (  24 )     Sea Level Pressure:  1031  mb  (  24 )     Station Pressure:  997.3  mb  (  24 )     Visibility:  14.8 ...
It would be about 200,000,000 feet short from the moon.
Predominantly due to friction. Major earthquakes (the ones you hear  about on the news) occur at collision (where two tectonic plates  are smashing together) and conservative (where two plates slide  side-by-side) boundaries.   Rocks (which obviously make up tectonic plates) can undergo two ...
The equation for this problem is pi squared •2 divided by mass
There is technically not a 'Rainy Season' for Alaska, as Alaska's  Summer's are only slightly rainier than the rest of the US. May is  relatively dry, with only a 25% chance of rain, but as the Summer  progresses, the likelihood of rain increases, as in Autumn, the  average chance of rain on any...
rocks: igneous rocks,metamorphic rocks,sedimentary rocks  ect.................
Definitely not under a tree, lamppost, or power lines. If you are  stuck outdoors, a car is one of the safest places to be. Because of  the rubber tires, you can't be struck as long as you are inside it.  Indoors, stay away from the windows in case a tree is struck and  falls onto your house.
It occurred on Boxing Day, 26 th December 2004.
The rotation causes the days, 24 hour periods  of light and dark based on your location on the Earth. The rotation  is important because without rotation of the earth, we would not as  easily be able to tell, or keep track of time. What we consider to  be the passage of time- 1 minute, 1 hour, 1...
vous me faites dur comme la pierre
It sound like you have a sever case of Athlete's foot. You cantreat it with antifungal creams, but it is best to consult a doctorto be sure of the diagnosis and as it is so severe.
California,Australia,Asia,Latin America and north america
Vesuvius is about 1,000 feet deep and 2,000 feet across.
Both.   While most of the landmass of Earth is made of igneous and  metamorphic rocks, most of the rocks that we can actually see (i.e.  those on the surface) are sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks are formed  from deposition by forces like rivers, waves and glaciers.  Sediment, however, comes...
About 90'' of potatoes on the coastal regions.
It helps the soil hold more rainfall so there will be less runoff and ruin the crops.
First, pebbles can be the result of larger rocks breaking up. Some  of these large rocks were bedrock under a huge continent. A long  time ago, the continents used to be one and then drifted apart to  their current locations and are still drifting to this day. During  this process, the "plates"...
Grandeur happenings hath become in thy absence. People now come out  of the caves and use this invention (that Al Gore tries to take  credit for), called the internet. Go to this thing called "Google."  If you don't know what "Google" is, just Google it. Type in  weather. Click on a weather site...
Fossils are not found in water, but rather in the sediment deposits  which includes the bottom of a body of water. Fossils are  especially prevalent in shallow marine environments where they may  become well preserved.
Mica is an interesting silicate mineral. The silicate series is:  quartz --> mica --> asbestos.   Quartz possesses three dimensional Si-O bonds which results in a  crystal that is strong in every direction. Consequently, quartz is  an exceptionally hard mineral.    Mica, on the...
well i live in ramallah,palistine the weather here is not really that cold its like in the 70s or high 60s there might be a slight chane of snow in the begging of february
No, she died in the camps.
Most earthquakes occur along the Pacific Ring of Fire, which isalong the top half of the pacific plate. . +++ . Perhaps the second major area is the Eastern Mediterranean andneighbouring countries, involving a complex of continental plates,with NE Africa rifting and the Mediterranean closing. . "Top...
They do not. Glacierelectric is simply the name of a company.
Sugars with increasing carbon units tends to be less soluble in water like polysaccharides.
If the planet was exactly in between Mars and Jupiter, it would  take 3645.029 days. 
Humans burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) release carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas. This is causing global warming. Any warming of the earth will lead to changes in climate. Scientists predict this will mean that storms, floods, droughts and other weather events will happen...
Everything it can to humanity.
more likely during the spring or summer
Science cannot predict when earthquakes will occur, nor in any  particular place. What they can do is look at the record of what  earthquakes have occured and where and produce statistics that say  if this pattern continues then it is likely there will be an  eathquake of this kind of magnitude...
Canada is not a peninsula.
It is the main water source for many city's
The water is a better ground than land, so it finds the water near the islands
Atlanta in May has the most rainfall in Georgia.

Whoa! step back for a second and think. this person is abusing you. you no longer have any responsibility to look after their welfare, the person forfeited that when they began abusing you. you should feel absolutely no responsibility for his welfare -- financial or otherwise. Get the OUT of there!...
The movement of water up a tree is best explained by capillary  action.
The Alaska earthquake of 1964 occurred along a subduction zone,  which consists largely of reverse faults.
Otavia antiqua, a sponge has been dated to ~760 Ma.
some lidgit scienist who iscovered that salt lowers the melting  point of ice and decided to sprkle it on roads
Infertile soils lack abundant plant nutrients, especially for  agricultural crops. It doesn't mean they're unsuitable for plant  growth, but the only plants that naturally grow on them are those  that can either do with few nutrients, or can get their nutrients  from pools that are unavailable...
Here are the ones that I can find records for:    1972-1973  1982-1983  1986-1987  1991-1992  1994-1995  1997-1998  2002-2003  2004-2005  2009-2010  
No one really invented it. For many years, salt has been known to  lower the freezing point of water. This happens when the salt's  ions dissociate in water. The act of lowering a freezing point (or  raising a boiling point) is called water's colligative property.  Generally speaking, the more...
They were created in the beginning.
The size and shape of a mineral is its form.
No, the only thing that will happen is the ice/snow beginning to  melt.
Parana river and urguay river
Depends on the size of the earthquake that causes it
Condensation of water vapour.
the stem and the leafs change to the colour of the food colouring so it turns red for example because the roots are absorbing it then it goes to the stem and through the vain
