After some glacial formations occurred during the last glacial period the valley was carved into what it appears as today around 10,000 years ago due to the melting of the glaciers. After the glaciers had finished melting they formed the alluvial flood plain that composes the valley’s floor. In comparison to the other similar valleys found in the region, the Hetch-Hetchy valley has much more round and smooth walls due to its higher abundance of glaciation....   [tags: returning the valley to its former glory]

How a Rainbow is Formed

- A rainbow is one of the most amazing things that can be seen in the sky. However, many people do not know how rainbows are formed. For a start, I will start by explaining how rainbows are formed. A rainbow occurs as a result of refraction and dispersion of white light, as it passes through a prism. Since a prism has two indexes, their difference causes light to diverge in different angles as it comes out of the prism. This splits the white color into many components, which are different colors. Since a raindrop contains two refractive indexes, it produces the different colors when hit by sunrays....   [tags: Light, Prism, Refraction]
