The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is a marine mammal belonging to the baleen whale suborder Mysticeti. Reaching a maximum confirmed length of meters (98 feet) and weight of tonnes ( tons), it is the largest animal known to have ever existed. The blue whale’s long and slender body can be various shades of grayish-blue dorsally and somewhat lighter underneath.

Peru's capital city, Lima, is located on the Pacific coast. TOPOGRAPHY. Peru is divided into three contrasting topographical regions: the coast (costa), the highlands (sierra), and the eastern rain forests (selva). The coastline is a narrow ribbon of desert plain from 16 to km (10 to mi) broad.   Reconstructions of (a) Rodinia formed by amalgamation of older cratons in the global, ca.

Failed rifts are inactive mid-ocean ridge segments abandoned during processes that change the spreading geometry of lithospheric plates (Table 1). Morphologically, they resemble active ridge crests, and it seems in some cases that their failure or abandonment was closely coupled to the propagation of a neighboring active rift.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Eastern Pacific Ocean and Hawaii. Boulder, Colo.: Geological Society of America, (OCoLC) In the present configuration of tectonic plates, the northeast Pacific region is dominated by the huge Pacific Plate.

Along its eastern edge, the Pacific Plate presently interacts with two medium-sized oceanic plates, the Juan de Fuca and Cocos Plates, and a few related small platelets: the Yakutat, Explorer, South Gorda, and Rivera Plates (Fig. Hey, J. Sinton, F. Duennebier, "Propagating rifts and spreading centers", The Eastern Pacific Ocean and Hawaii, E.

Winterer, Donald M. Hussong. The boundary between the Pacific and Juan de Fuca Plates in the northeast Pacific Ocean is marked by a series of spreading centers (Fig. 1) and their connecting fracture zones (transform faults). The longest ( km) of these, the Juan de Fuca Ridge, is bounded on the south by the Blanco Fracture Zone and on the north by the Sovanco Fracture Zone.

Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact theories speculate about possible visits to or interactions with the Americas, the indigenous peoples of the Americas, or both, by people from Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania at a time prior to Christopher Columbus' first voyage to the Caribbean in (i.e.

during any part of the so-called pre-Columbian era). Such contact is accepted as having occurred in. The Pacific Ocean is vast and many of the magnetic anomaly identifications are old (pre‐s), poorly documented, and subject to larger data source and digitizing uncertainties than the more recent identifications found in many of the other ocean basins.

The Hawaiian–Emperor seamount chain is a series of volcanoes and seamounts extending about 6, km across the Pacific Ocean.

The chain has been produced by the movement of the ocean crust over the Hawaiʻi hotspot, an upwelling of hot rock from the Earth's the oceanic crust moves the volcanoes farther away from their source of magma, their eruptions become less frequent and less. The sea otter (Enhydra lutris) is a marine mammal native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific sea otters typically weigh between 14 and 45 kg (31 and 99 lb), making them the heaviest members of the weasel family, but among the smallest marine most marine mammals, the sea otter's primary form of insulation is an exceptionally thick coat of fur, the.

Most hydrothermal deposits that have been found on intermediate- and slow-spreading ridge crests are focused along faults, fissures, and volcanic structures within large rift valleys that are several kilometers wide.

The fault scarps along the margins of rift valleys are common sites.

Pyrite oxidation begins with the oxidation of sulfur by oxygen yielding sulfate, ferrous iron, and acidity. The rate-limiting step is the oxidation of Fe 2+ to Fe 3+, which occurs only very slowly at low pH chemically, but is catalyzed by bacteria that speed up the reaction rate by a factor of Once underway, the process of pyrite oxidation may continue until the source is exhausted.

After Cl −, SO 4 2− is the most abundant anion in the ocean. Under the mildly reducing conditions of the Archean ocean, dissolved aqueous sulfur in the ocean would have been in equilibrium between a reduced form, probably sulfide (H 2 S), and the hydrated, oxidized form H 2 SO 4.

The latter (sulfuric acid) would equilibrate with the. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 52 () Elsevier Scientific Publishing Company, Amsterdam - Printed in The Netherlands [5j VOLCANISM AND VERTICAL TECTONICS IN THE PACIFIC BASIN RELATED TO GLOBAL CRETACEOUS TRANSGRESSIONS SEYMOUR O.
