  • Surface Currents Southern Hemisphere

    In the worlds oceans, the surface currents move the oceans surface water. This occurs in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. From a diagram of these surface currents, a number of conclusions can be made about the general patterns of the surface currents. One of these conclusions includes that they go clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counter-clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. The Northern Pacific circulation goes around in a clockwise rotation. The same thing happens in the North ...
  • Main Cause Of Water Pollution

    There are many main cause of pollution, which come from many different ways are lakes are being polluted. (Lakes have been used as dumping grounds for refuse for centuries. ) (Edward F. Dolan) An author said, "Oceans are like humans, they can absorb small amounts of contaminants but get sick when it is too much to handle." (Edward F. Dolan) Part of why are lakes and oceans are being so polluted, is that people didn't realize the effect it would have in the future. Only know people are realizing ...
  • Oceans In Danger Global Warming

    Water takes up a larger percentage of the surface of our Earth than does land. The earth's oceans are vital aspects to our environment and it is necessary that we take care of them. On another note, global warming is an issue that is having effects on almost all aspects of our environment. Global warming itself means a gradual increase in the temperature of our Earth's atmosphere over large periods of time. There is evidence that global warming has occurred in the atmosphere, however, now we are...
  • Ocean Pollution In The Third World

    Ocean Pollution in the Third World In this introduction, I will try and accomplish this project about the Oceans on the earth which affect the Third World countries and countries all around the world. This topic was very interesting because there were lots of information and overall learning about this problem and the problem is getting better everyday. This topic is about the pollution in the oceans on this earth and what is the effect on the Third World countries and on the rest of the countri...

    Oceans Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that has liquid water. The ocean contains ninety seven percent of the earth's water and covers almost three quarters of the planet. There are four different oceans, the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, and the Arctic. Tides and currents occur in all three of these oceans. Many different kinds of fish and mammals also make their homes in these oceans. All of these oceans are connected to each other in some way. Humans find oceans to be very interesti...

    Oceans The ocean covers Seventy-one percent of our planets surface. Life is concentrated, however, in about four percent of it, and it is this four percent that is being polluted by the tons every day. Everyone needs to understand that the oceans are not endless, and not bottomless. They also much see that the ocean contains much marine life which are essential to our eco-system. And in order to preserve this other world of life, we must stop polluting the oceans, and begin to clean them up. Alt...
  • Dimensional Argument Against The Snowball Earth Hypothesis
    1,122 words
    A most recent inquiry into climatic change during the ice age and it's possibility of reoccurring is the Snowball Earth Hypothesis advanced by Paul Hoffman of Harvard University. Snowball Earth Suggest that before the Ice age, continents ice free at the poles enhanced the reabsorption of carbon dioxide through erosion of silicate minerals, reducing the greenhouse effect making the earth colder until it reached a runaway point. This effect is Hoffman calls albedo, when the atmosphere becomes so c...
  • Global Warming Greenhouse Oceans Ice

    The process of warmth circulating and the natural greenhouse effect are well balanced. Every change in the concentration of greenhouse gases leads to the aggravation of greenhouse effect which in turn leads to the aggravation of global warming. Global warming is increasing the melt of ice in the Arctic region. Today scientists do not challenge the destructive force of human activity. Now, they are deeply convinced that the slightest change in the ability of Earth to absorb warmth, including the ...
  • Oceanography As Viewed From Space
    1,229 words
    Oceanography as Viewed from Space Introduction At first thought, studying the oceans from space seems to be a bizarre idea. Space observation helps oceanographers do research with manned and unmanned space systems. The space systems can be satellites and / or space shuttles that observe various features of the ocean such as sea-surface winds, sea-surface temperatures, waves, ocean currents, frontal regions, and sea color. Technological advances have greatly improved the ability of oceanographers...

    Ocean Solutions Solutions to Save the Ocean Many years ago nobody would have thought that the ocean would ever need saving. The covers over 90% of the earth's surface. People would wonder how something so collosal ever be effected by their actions. Unfortunately, the oceans do suffer from mankind's careless, selfish acts. There are numerous ways to begin to clean up the oceans. These solutions range from individual action to government action. The individual can begin to help stop the leaking a...
  • Plates Ridges Ocean Rocks

    two oceanic plates were colliding into each other. Consequently, forming new oceanic crust along with over tremendous distances?" A noted English geophysicist, Harold Jeffreys, argued that it was physically impossible for masses of solid rock to move without breaking up. Plus, the driving forces from the ridges. Collision of two plates causes some crust to be destroyed or diminished in size. The results are different depending on the type of plates e movement of the Earth. Enormous blocks of so...
