Which statements describe Global Information Systems (GIS)? measures sound to pinpoint the location of underwater objects collects information from the Environmental Protection Agency
is a useful tool for creating evacuation plans in the event of an earthquake measures the speed of planes and trains
can be used for disease control
can be used for drought prevention

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

  • collects information from the Environmental Protection Agency
  • is a useful tool for creating evacuation plans in the event of an earthquake
  • can be used for disease control

Explanation:

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are equipment and technological means to study terrestrial space. They are used by researchers, companies, NGOs, governments, intelligence services, among others. GISs result from the combination of three different types of technologies: Remote sensing, GPS and geoprocessing. They are extremely important for society and for science as a whole. Among its many functions we can say that through them:

  • we can collect information from the Environmental Protection Agency
  • create evacuation plans in the event of an earthquake
  • uses it to control disease.
Answer 2

Agricultural products that are produced extremely long distances from the US can be sold in American markets today due to __________.

Answers

Answer:

Agricultural products that are produced extremely long distances from the US can be sold in American markets today due to refrigeration and preservation.

Explanation:

Preservation refers to a process that preserves food for a longer period without spoiling. Preservation inhibits microbial activity and enzymatic activity, allowing food products to be marketed throughout the year, regardless of geographical location, which offsets local variations in production and seasonal differences in availability.

The most common preservation methods are freezing, sugaring, drying, salting, lactic acid fermentation, smoking, acidification, vinegar preservation, sealing, heat treatment, irradiation, use of preservatives, pasteurization and UHT heating.

Technological methods used to prove that plate tectonics occur include: a.
earthquake tracking and satellite images
c.
ocean floor mapping and satellite images
b.
volcanic activity tracking and satellite images
d.
ocean floor mapping and earthquake tracking

Answers

The correct answer is D. ocean floor mapping and earthquake tracking

Tracking earthquakes is helpful because it shows where it came from and what caused it, as well as how it affected the environment, while ocean floor mapping is useful because it shows how the bottom of the sea changed over time which happens due to tectonic activity.
