Topographical Studies

EDISON — Eighth graders in Noreen Jafri’s earth science class at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in North Edison recently used topographic map symbols and their knowledge of contour lines to explore features of USGS (United States Geological Survey) topographical maps. The maps included geography of urban areas such as Morristown as well as the unusual interesting landscape of places such as the Delaware Water Gap, Devil’s Tower and Crater Lake.
