31
32
9.7Elements on Earth move among reservoirs in the solid earth, oceans, atmosphere and organisms as part of biogeochemical cycles.
33
D19Explain how chemical and physical processes cause carbon to cycle through the major earth reservoirs.
34
D20Explain how solar energy causes water to cycle through the major earth reservoirs.
35
D21Explain how internal energy of the Earth causes matter to cycle through the magma and the solid earth.
36
37
9.8The use of resources by human populations may affect the quality of the environment.
38
D22Explain how the release of sulfur dioxide (SO2) into the atmosphere can form acid rain, and how acid rain affects water sources, organisms and human-made structures.
39
D23Explain how the accumulation of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere increases Earth’s “greenhouse” effect and may cause climate changes.
40
D24Explain how the accumulation of mercury, phosphates and nitrates affects the quality of water and the organisms that live in rivers, lakes and oceans.
41
42
9.9Some materials can be recycled, but others accumulate in the environment and may affect the balance of the Earth systems.
43
D25Explain how land development, transportation options and consumption of resources may affect the environment.
44
D26Describe human efforts to reduce the consumption of raw materials and improve air and water quality.
45
46
9.10Earth-based and space-based astronomy reveal the structure, scale and changes in stars, galaxies and the universe over time.
47
ES1The differences and similarities among the sun, the terrestrial planets and the gas planets may have been established during the formation of the solar system.
48
ES2Evidence from Earth and moon rocks indicates that the solar system was formed from a nebular cloud of dust and gas approximately 4.6 billion years ago
49
ES3Evidence from geological studies of Earth and other planets suggests that the early Earth was very different from Earth today.
50
ES4The sun is a typical star and is powered by nuclear reactions, primarily the fusion of hydrogen to form helium.
51
ES5Asteroids and meteorites had a significant role in shaping the surface of planets and their moons and in mass extinctions of life on Earth.
