Air samples have been collected at the Mauna Loa Observatory (ML.O) on the main island of Hawaii since the late l and analyzed to determine the concentration of carbon dioxide (Co,) in the atmosphere. Located at 3397 m above sea level on the north slope of the Mauna Loa Volcano, this remote sampling site is high enough so that contamination is minimized. The location of MLO is shown by the yellow-filled circle in Fig. A1.2.1, which is a map that uses the geographic coordinate system of decimal latitude and longitude. One of the orange lines through the site extends north meridian--an arc of equal longitude-and the other extends east-west along a parallel-a circle of equal latitude (Fig. 14 ocated at 3397 m above sea -south along -19.60N bi Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) of NOAAs Earth Science Research Laboratory parallel Geographic coordinates of the MLO Latitude Longitude: +-19.50N 155.50°W 155.60W Figure A1.2.1 1. Latitude 19.50 N is the minimum latitude shown on the map. Carefully measure the distance along the orange line 2. Measure the total map distance along that same orange line from the 19.50 N parallel through the MLO site to the 3. We know the difference in latitude from the bottom of the map at 19.50 N to the top of the map at 19.60 N and call al -cm from the l 9.50°N parallel to the MLO site. We will call that map distance al, 19.60 parallel and call that map distance bI. bcm that distance dI. d- 4. We would like to know the difference in latitude between 19.50 N and the MLO site and will call this unknown quantity cl. The ratio of al to bl is the same as the ratio of cl to dl. Use what you learned about proportions by reading the text earlier in this chapter to find el el 5. Determine the latitude of the MLO site (19.50N +i 6. Just in case you come across this situation again in the (near) future, write a general equation to solve this type of equation directly using the variable names a, b& , and de Follow the same general procedure to find the longitude of the MLO site. 7. Map the distance from longitude 155.0w to ML.O (az), recognizing that longitude 155.50 W is the minimum cm. longitude shown on the map: a2- 21

Determine the longitade of the ML.O site (155.50w+ Part of the USGS 7.5-min (Fig. 1.3). We are going to build on what you learned Oa the topographic map, put a dot in the center of the blue oval representing the Grand Prismatic Spring n part A to find the UTM coordinates of the center of the Grand nute topographic r quadrangle map of the Lower Geyser hasin, Wyoming (2015), is reproduced A to Prismatic Spring. 13 12 931 4931000m Grand Prismatic Sprin Ex 930000mN 512000mE 513000mE Figure A1.2.2 I. Regarding a first look at the map in Fig. A1.22 (a) What is the minimum easting on the map? (b) What is the minimum northing on the map? (e) Is the central meridian for this zone to the east (right) or west (left) of this map area? (Refer to Fig. 1.5 for mE. What edge of the map is bounded by the minimum easting (top, bottom, left, right)? minimum northing (top, bottom, left, right)? assistance mN. What edge of the map is bounded by the 2. The yellow squar re that surrounds most of the map in Fig. A1.2.2 represents a horizontal area on the ground at Yellowstone National Park that is 1000 m by 1000(kmIkm) in dimension. We can use a side of that square like a bar scale. As accurately as you can, measure the length of a side of the yellow square on the map in cm; well use the variable name a3 for this map length. a3 the variable name 63 for the ground distance along one of the sides of the yellows square-I scale of this map can be found by dividing 63 by a3-well call that result ed. The f that I length unit of any sort (em, for example) on the map represents e3length units of the (b) We will use km-but wwits as we used for a3. That is, 63 is the number of cm in 1 km. There are 100 cm in 1 m, and expressed in the same 1000 m in 1 km. 63 of fractional scale is (c) The fractional That means t (cm) on the ground.
