Local data on disaster losses. Nelson snelson tulane. The links above will now take you to the revised version of the Syllabus. The amount of casualties certainly does, but the damage will be the same no matter when the earthquake occurs. Scientific Report. A balanced perspective. The best evidence that global warming is occurring is that average global temperatures have increased over the last years.
I f you want to see your final exam or have any questions about your scores or grades, please feel free to come by my office, Room Blessey Hall, or you can send e-mail. It is probably best to make an appointment, as I am in and out of my office now that the semester is over.
What truly is amazing is that many of the comments below are the same comments I posted after the previous semester's final exam and have been posted on this web site during the entire semester. So, I can now retire. Two primary goals that I have in this course are to provide information that will help save your lives and to bust myths people have about historic events or the way things operate.
This is absolutely false. All levee breaches occurred on the same day that Katrina made landfall August 29, I am still puzzling over how I can get this myth out of people's heads. All levees that failed in New Orleans were on human made navigation and drainage canals. Many of you still think that the amount of damage that an earthquake causes depends on the time of day.
The amount of casualties certainly does, but the damage will be the same no matter when the earthquake occurs. Cinder cones are small.
What about eruptions from volcanoes like Yellowstone or Long Valley? The best evidence that global warming is occurring is that average global temperatures have increased over the last years. The evidence does not come from metling ice or the amount of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere.
The evidence comes from measuring temperatures and this evidence cannot be disputed. This point was emphasized many times in class, in homework, and on the mideterm. The letter I, as in Isaac, is not the 5th letter of the alphabet, it is the 9th, and thus Isaac was the 9th tropical storm or hurricane of Life or Death Questions.
Several questions on the final exam were designed to see if you learned some valuable life or death lessons. The results are discouraging. That's 28 deaths in a course in which you were supposed to learn how of avoid deaths by natural disasters.
Some people died more than once, but I did not keep track of those statistics. Hopefully those of you who potentially died in these situations will read about your errors here before reality strikes. Congratulations to those of you who are graduating, and best wishes for a great summer to all.
