Overview

The Challenging Part

The most challenging requirement of this honor is probably this:


4. Take a picture or make a sketch of each of the following geological features:

a. A bed of sediment that is coarser at the bottom and finer toward the top (This is called normal graded bedding.)

b. Ripple marks in sand or mud (Show with an arrow the current direction if possible.)

c. Gully erosion

d. Mud cracks (These can usually be found after a heavy rain or flood when mud starts to dry.)

e. Soil profile along a stream bank or road cut (You should be able to see how soil usually becomes lighter colored downward from the surface of the ground.)

f. Sand bar (Sand bars can be found in rivers or streams, or along the ocean.)
