Google Earth is an interactive 3D satellite image and virtual mapping software program that allows you to navigate to and view various locations on the planet from a
bird’s-eye view. The program provides satellite images of the Earth’s surface and is interfaced with Google maps. To navigate to different locations, you simple
double-click on the location you wish to zoom in on, or you can type in location names or coordinates in the search menu at the top-right of the screen. In some areas
you can enter ‘street view’ and navigate streets as though you were traveling in a vehicle along that road.
In this assignment you will use Google Earth to navigate to four different stream locations. Answer each of the questions about that location using the attached
worksheet. Save the worksheet and submit it as an attachment to this assignment for grading.
Stream features are the component parts of streams. You learned about some of the most common stream features in the Stream Components & Processes video in Connect.
This assignment applies what you learned to the identification of stream features in real-world contexts using Google Earth.
1. Use the Google Earth search menu to navigate to:
N 40 27.445 W 79 59.170
To do this, just type the above latitude and longitude coordinates into the search menu or copy and paste the text. At the bottom right of the screen you should see
that the eye alt (the altitude at which you are viewing the landscape) is about 4000 ft. Use the zoom slider at the top right of the map to zoom out to an eye alt of
approximately 32 miles. Here the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers flow together to form the Ohio River. The Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers are both _________________
of the larger Ohio River. Add this answer to the attached answer worksheet.
