  • Analysis Of Albert Bierdstats Among The Sierra Nevada Mountains In California - 983 words
    Albert Bierstadts Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California is a scenic canvas oil painting on display at the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. Created in 1868, this enormous painting is approximately six by ten feet in size (Honour and Fleming, 2000). The subject matter of this piece is typical of Bierstadt, who is known for his detailed landscapes, especially those of the Rockies and Sierras of the American West. Collectively, Alberts works are manipulated and slightly idealized scenes based on actual places he visited. Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902) was born in Germany and at the age of two, he moved with his parents to Massachusetts. In his early twenties, he studied ...

  • Why Are Different Climates In Different Places - 640 words
    Why There Are Different Climates In Different Places Why Are There Different Climates Different Places The main factor that determines the climates of any place is its distance from the equator. This is because sun never rises high. Therefore the places close to the equator remains warm. Temperature typically decreases as altitude increases. At high altitudes the air is less dense, and it does not absorb and hold as much heat. On the average, the temperature drops about 3.5 Fahrenheit for every 1,000 feet (2 Celsius for every 300 meters). Thus snow may fall on a cold mountaintop and stay there without melting while rain falls in the warmer valley below. Land warms up rapidly when heated by t ...

    DAVID McCULLOUGH, Host: Good evening and welcome to The American Experience. I'm David McCullough. At the start of spring in the year 1846 an appealing advertisement appeared in the Springfield, Illinois, Gazette. ''Westward ho,'' it declared. ''Who wants to go to California without costing them anything? As many as eight young men of good character who can drive an ox team will be accommodated. Come, boys, you can have as much land as you want without costing you anything.'' The notice was signed G.

They were racing against time and the weather, desperate to get over the mountains and into California before snow blocked the heights. There was no sign of Stanton or McCutcheon or of the relief they promised to bring from Sutter's Fort. With the death of Snyder and the banishment of James Reed, the Donner Party was coming apart. On October 7th, Lewis Keseberg turned an aging Belgian emigrant named Hardkoop out of his wagon. No one else would take him in. The old man fell farther and father behind and was last seen sitting by the road, unable to walk. On the night of October 12th, Paiute Indians killed 21 o ...

  • Ansel Adams - Early Morning, Merced River - 1,123 words
    Ansel Adams, b. 1902, was important to photography through history and through his works helped contribute to the respect photography is now given as a fine art. He first discovered photography when he received a Kodak #1 Box Brownie in 1916 from his father as a birthday present. At the time he aspired to be a concert pianist as he was an amazing musician, however, when aged 14 on a family vacation to Yosemite National Park, he discovered the Sierra Nevada mountains and returned there at least once every year of his life, thus inspiring his style of photography and subject matter. Photography in its early stages was not considered by critics as a true form of art, but photography was seen as ...

  • Broad Analysis Of Igneous Rocks In Earth's Geology - 375 words
    Out of the three different types of rocks, igneous rocks are by far the most abundant rock on the earths surface. From the oceans to the mountains, you will find igneous rocks everywhere and it is easy to see why. Igneous rocks are a result of solidified magma. Magma is found underneath the earths surface all over. Mountains are usually volcanoes; either extinct, dormant or active. Volcanoes contain magma. Magma is cooling all the time. This would mean that the rocks that form from lava spews, or pyroclastic debris would be igneous. Since volcanoes are also found below sea level, oceans would also have igneous rocks in them. In the article Mantle Plumes and Moutains written by J. Brendan Mur ...

  • How Mountains Are Formed - 372 words
    How Are Mountains Formed? Mountains are formed over long periods of time by forces of the earth. Mountains just don't appear in any place. Most are formed when plates, or huge pieces of the Earth's crust, pull and push against each other. Great mountain ranges are formed by the movement of tectonic plates. Convection currents deep in the mantle of the earth, begins to well up towards the surface. As the pressure increases, it sets the crustal plates in motion. There are different kinds of mountains - Volcanic, Folded, Fault-block, and Dome mountains. Volcanic mountains are formed when magma comes up through cracks in the Earth's crust and explodes out lava and ash. The Hawaiian volcanoes, Mt ...
