Landscapes of NYS

Landscapes of NYS

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 Castle Learning Week #19 Aim: Landforms are the result of the interaction between erosional and uplifting forces.

Objective: You will be able to use the ESRT to differentiate between landscape regions based on elevation and type/age of bedrock throughout NYS.

Do Now: What type of landscape regions are A, B and C? A is a mountain: Note the uplift and contorted layers

B is a plateau: High elevation, but flat, level layers C is a lowland: Flood plain, flat, low elevation, meandering stream

Exit Summary: NYS Landscapes

Give a specific NYS location for each type of landscape region and explain the two key factors responsible for identifying each type.

ESRT Page 2 ESRT Page 3 Landscape:

Forms from the interaction of erosional and uplifting forces. Mountain: A large mass of rock that rises above its base.

Plain: A level expanse of land, usually devoid of trees. Plateau: An elevated level, expanse of land.

Dissected Plateau: An elevated expanse of land broken by a river or canyon. Stream Drainage Pattern:

The path of streams/rivers in a watershed. Procedure A: Area Elevation High Elevation = Red [Mountains] HIGH

Middle Elevation = Yellow [Plateaus] MEDIUM Low Elevation = Green [Lowlands/Plain]

of landscape region and explain the two key factors responsible for identifying each type. Procedure B: Surface Drainage Systems

Trace and label watersheds listed on page 124 on Map 2

on page 126 using page 3 of your ESRT as a guide.

Procedure C: Geographic Ages and Bedrock Geology Use page 3 of your ESRT to list the age and type of bedrock at each specified location.

For example: High/mountain elevations are: Age: Middle Proterzoic Type: Intensely Metamorphic

Age Period/Era Type Sedimentary

Metamorphic Intensely Metamorphic Watersheds
