Topography homework Name ___________________________
20 points total

Instructions: Read the links in the drop box besides these are my additional suggestions:

1) Download the worksheet and keep a clean copy of the file on a safe place like your homework
file. You have created it on your computer desktop.

2) Most of you do not know how to read topographic maps, if you do go ahead and get it done.
But if you do not know, then read the information in the two links. You do not need to buy the
book!

3) Print a copy of the worksheet and get a light brown or green coloring pencil. Locate the 0
elevation contour line and color all the area above sea level this is elevation greater than 0.
Positive values indicate above sea level, negative values below sea level. So now you can see the
island of Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rico Trough or Trench as well as the Hawaiian Islands.
These depth values are in meters.

4) Find the highest positive values Max elevation and Max depth highest negative values found
across the straight lines (vertical cross sections) across the contour lines. This thick straight line is
the line of the vertical section or profile. These sections depict the variation in elevation along the
line. The panels: A, B, C and D are their graphic representations.

5) To select which cross section is the right one look for the starting height or water depth at the
beginning and end of the lines. Then look in between too!

Questions:

1. Answer the following questions regarding Figure (1) below:
a. What is the maximum depth you would reach if you traversed along the

path shown below (2 pts)? ___________________
b. What is the maximum height you would reach if you traveled along the

same path (2 pts)? ___________________
c. Between what 2 depths would you experience the greatest slope (2 pts)?

d. Choose which subpanel in Figure (2) best represents the cross-section
shown below (6 pts). __________________
