Stevens, Jan. 26, 93 Society has been presented with a broad spectrum of cause and effect relationships within the water based ecosystems. Without a conscious effort to rehabilitate our water systems many rivers and lakes are doomed. We have to look after this precious resource. Fortunately many new controls and clean up programs have been introduced. Rivers are being devastated due to physical and ec...
  • Clear Stream
    388 words
    Alone with Nature Arriving at the lusciously dense forest at daybreak, you gaze at the fresh dew delicately dangling on the foliage. You stroll through the winding dirt trails towards the steady flowing water while the birds proudly recite their early morning songs. Reaching the free flowing stream you bend down and see your clear reflection in front of the orange-yellow sky. Goosebumps rise along your arms as the streams icy depths run through your fingers. The cleansing water quickly refreshes...
  • Waters Of Life
    985 words
    Water, the median of life. Growing up in a small town nestled tightly in the arms of the wasatch front, I learned early the importance of nature. There was a fine line drawn between religion and the outdoors, and the quest of my life was to determine an appropriate balance. Water, signifying the line between the spiritual and physical, played an important role in my secular teachings. Cutting through the center of town it was the very phenomenon that had grown to love, the river. Soul restored a...
  • Particle In A Stream Bed The Water

    Write-up on Water Forces Day 1.) There seemed to be quite a difference in the flow patterns between land with a small amount of slope and land with a steep slope. It seemed that when we would run the water down a small amount of slope the water would barely run anywhere and would almost just puddle up and not do much. However, with a steeper slope the water would run a lot more quickly and would form a stream down the sand into the runoff container. It would form accurately and you could definit...
  • Water Quality At Stream Crossings
    582 words
    Forest Roads And Their Effect On Water Quality Roads are often necessary to perform certain tasks in the forests. When roads are made, they often pose the problem of erosion, and damage to nearby water sources. The two articles I read on this topic were both from the August 1999 issue of the Journal of Forestry. Both discuss the different techniques and methods for trying to limit the amount of silt that contaminates roads due to disturbance. The first article, What We Know- and dont know- about...
  • Conductivity Of Water
    229 words
    The measure of the capacity of water to allow an electrical current is called conductivity. Conductivity in streams is affected by many factors such as the elements or compounds found in the water, the temperature of the water, the geology of the area, and the pollution in the water. Each of these factors affect the conductiity in some way. Many inorganic dissolved solids increase the conductivity of water. Examples of these include: chloride, nitrate, sulfate, phosphate, sodium, magnesium, calc...
  • Anchors Body Surface Many Stream Plants
    1,279 words
    The nature of all aquatic environments depends upon the following factors which exert their effects in varying degree: i) The depth of water Has an important secondary effect by reducing the penetration of light and hence the degree of colonisation by plants. ii) Light Water absorbs light of long wavelengths, particularly the blue part of the visible spectrum. Since this would not normally be sufficient for photosynthesis, many freshwater plants possess adaptations so that light does not become ...
  • Raft And Head Down Stream
    534 words
    "This could be your last meal", my mother jokingly said before we left that day. The day was bright, and the sun gleaming. The group packed into the muggy van, it was stifling hot, and downright uncomfortable. On a hot summer Missouri day, in the middle of July, your shirt clung to your damp skin. The mission: White Water Rafting. The drive to the river, where we would begin our incredible journey, seemed to last endless miles. The humidity was almost unbearable; the van had absolutely no ventil...
