You will calculate the approximate volume of the mass wasting deposit shown at the foot of the Pahsimeroi Mountains.
1. How thick is the deposit at the end (the “toe”) of the deposit? (Take the 6800′ contour to be the top of the deposit):
2. Although the deposit is somewhat irregular, assume that it is square or rectangular in shape. Estimate the length of the two sides of the deposit that are in contact with the mountain front (the northwest [NW] side and the southwest side [SW]), then calculate its surface area:
3. Assuming that your answer to the previous question above represents the uniform thickness of the deposit (a simplistic assumption), calculate the total volume of the deposit.
