    WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ADDED TO THE GCI?
    It seems like there haven't been very many submittals to the GCI for a few years. Those that have been submitted seem to be dominated by geosphere topics such as plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes and deep time. I was unable to find more than a dozen that might be suitable for an introductory geoscience course on natural resources and the environment, so I submitted a question in the hydrosphere category. My question is how long does it take for proposed questions to appear in the GCI and what criteria are used to validate them (to close discussion)?

    greenhouse effect cause - energy
    Answer B is also correct - the key is the composition of gases in the atmosphere, which are able to absorb more heat now (from sun's radiation as well as reradiated from Earth) due to the increased CO2 and other anthropogenic gases.

    Water in rivers
    This seems like a really low-level question for any college student - I'd be embarrassed if my elementary school son was unable to answer this one correctly. Is there a better way of classifying questions according to academic level? I don't think this is suitable for a college level course.
