Effects Of Acid Acid Deposition
770 wordsAcid Rain is a type of air pollution, formed when oxides of sulfur and nitrogen combine with atmosphere moisture to yield sulfuric and nitric acids, which may then be carried long distances from a source before they are deposited by rain. This pollution may also be snow, fog, or a dry form of precipitation. Acid rain is currently a subject of great controversy because of widespread environmental damage for which it has been blamed, including eroding structures, injuring crops and forests, and th...

Million Years Ago Long Period Of Time
1,219 wordsFrom Water to Land (Revision) Abstract: The early tetrapods were the first vertebrates to actually walk the solid earth. They began their conquest of land in the Paleozoic era around 360 million years ago. The question many paleontologists have been asking for a long period of time is whether the anatomy for locomotion on land was developed in water for swimming purposes, or if it was adapted after the creatures became terrestrial. Recent findings of fossils indicate that the transformations of ...

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Greenhouse Gases
615 wordsAccording to the basic theory of microeconomics, mutually beneficial trades are possible with the presence of marginal abatement costs differences. In terms of the trades of pollution permits, the level of pollution remains the same as when it is regulated by law; but the amount spent on pollution control is lower. Thus, we say that the practice of tradable pollution permits increases efficiency. With the aim to protect the global commons of the earths atmosphere, the obligations established in ...

Million Years Ago Dry Land
722 wordsAbout four hundred and fifty million years ago, at the end of the Ordovician and in the beginning of the Silurian, the land was desolate and empty. Barren, hardly withered rock grounds, empty sand-, gravel- and clay plains, no green. Maybe some lichens. And at wet spots some algae with a couple of spider-like little creatures creeping around. In the neighbourhood of the mouth of rivers, where the water regularly flooded the land, it was probably green with algae. At such places, e. g. in Austral...

Planet From The Sun Human Behavior
569 wordsWritten Assignment # 5 The structure of the Sun is defined by the conditions of energy conservation, mass conservation, momentum conservation and the mode of energy transport. The Sun has many layers. The interior of the Sun includes the core, the radiative zone, and the convective zone. The photosphere produces the visible light we see, the chromosphere is the part of the solar atmosphere, and the corona is the outermost layer of the Sun. The sunspots are regions on the surface of the Sun. They...

Naturally Occurring Million Years
630 wordsChlorine, symbol Cl, is a greenish-yellow gaseous element. In group 17 of the periodic table, chlorine is one of the halogens. The atomic number of chlorine is 17. Chlorine is a greenish yellow gas, which combines directly with nearly all elements. It is a gas at normal temperature and pressure, but because it is highly reactive it is not found as a gas in nature. Instead, it appears as naturally occurring organochlorine compounds and salts. It is commonly found as NaCl (solid or seawater). The ...

1,164 wordsFire Fire And Ecosystems Introduction Fire is an important part of many ecosystems, affecting wildlife populations in various ways, such as by changing habitat, affecting food supply or quality, or by altering interactions of species. Fire suppression has allowed forested areas to achieve a climax state, which provides less forage for wildlife. While terrestrial wildlife is benefited by fire, large fires through the increase in sediment flow negatively impact aquatic ecosystems. Fire is essentia...

I guess a genie somewhere in this small world heard me and granted my wish, well sort of anyway.
