How are diamonds made? Diamonds are made of carbon. They are made of highly organized carbon, to be specific. Scientist think that the diammond's recipe goes like, frist, bury carbon dioxide 100 miles into Earth. Second, heat to about 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, squeeze under pressure of 725,000 per square inch. Lastly quickly rushes towards Earth's surface to cool. There are two ways to make diamonds in the laboratory. The first way is called high pressure, high temperature (HPHT). These diamonds are not as pure as natural diamonds though. The second way is called chemical vapor deposition. In this method it turns its back on intense pressure but creates diamonds more flawless than what nature can actually produce.

"The ring of fire is a ring of volcanoes around the Pacific Ocean that result from subduction of oceanic plates beneath lighter continental plates." The ring of fire has 75% of the world's volcanoes and 90% of the world's earthquakes happen there, 89% of the world's largest volcanoes happen in the Ring of Fire. It has been estimated to have about 452 volcanoes around. It runs from Chile to New…show more content…
"The earthquake epicenter is a point on the Earth's surface directly above an earthquake."

How do scientists find the epicenter of an earthquake? To find the epicenter, scientists study the P waves and S waves produced by all earthquake. The P waves and the S waves are recorded on a seismograph. Then the scientists use the difference between the times that the sets of waves arrived to find the distance where the rocks broke off at the beginning of the earthquake. The seismologists gather the data from at least three seismographs to find the location of the earthquake. The point where the three circles intersect on the map is known as the epicenter.

What makes leaves sprout in the Spring? Even when we are Spring and the leaves begin to sprout all over again, this was all started in autumn. As the day gets shorter and the temperature decreases during Fall, the trees prepare itself to shut down and sprout all over again in the Spring at the same time. The most important components to this in autumn is the day length. As the night gets longer, the plant takes in the night as it lengthens or as the day shortens and prepares itself to shut down. This also causes the same thing in tropical forests. The only difference is the day length may not decrease as much as in Canada. One component that helps in this is the decrease of temperature and also water
