The ocean. Many picture deep blue water and beautiful wildlife, but that wildlife is in danger and the ocean isn’t all water anymore. Big plastic patches are found in many of the world’s oceans, and marine life is ingesting the plastic which often leads to death because the animals choke on it, get poisoned by the plastic, or starve to death because plastic is the only thing the marine life is eating. Animals such as turtles and seals also get caught in the plastic and can’t get back into open water leading to starvation or severe injuries. The Hawaiian Monk Seal, which is already on the brink of extinction, often gets caught in the plastic and dies, the other problem affecting
The ocean it covers over 70 percent of the earth’s surface and more than 500 million people go to its surface during the summer yet we have not seen 95 percent of the surface in detail. This is where oceaogahers come into play. An oceanographer is someone who studies the ocean whether it is to find a pocket of oil deep in the ocean or to find new species of fish deep down in the sea or the migratory patterns of fish for fishermen to be able to catch that type of fish all year.
Astonishingly, Did you know that we have better maps of the moon than we do of the ocean? (#7) It’s true! Scientists are working to make drones to explore the deep sea. Ocean Exploration is a developing science that incorporates the use of marine biology and drone technology. Ocean Exploration technology will be an overall benefit to society because 1. exploring the ocean is easier than before and 2. ocean exploration can help with monitoring the deep sea.
Earth's oceans are dying. “About 80% of the ocean around the world is polluted with chemicals industrial and residential waste, all of which comes from the land” (“Marine Problems…”). Pollution is mainly coming from the people. Marine pollution should be stopped because it is the cause of many problems and if something is done about it, people will see an increase in sea life and healthier waters. It makes its way into the ocean and kills marine life. Ocean pollution is affecting the way of fisherman and their everyday lives. It is also very bad on the community because pollution is very bad on tourism. Ocean pollution should be stopped because it is poorly affecting marine life, it is not good for fishermen, and is very bad on tourism.
If people do not start to act soon, hundreds of species around the world will be extinct by the year 2050. Healthy coral reefs mean healthy oceans, and healthy oceans mean a healthier earth. Water covers 70% of the earth’s surface and less than 1% of that is coral reefs. Without coral reefs, water is dirtier and wildlife is less abundant. Coral reefs are also important to the development of new medicines. Without coral reefs, scientists might never find a cure for diseases like Cancer, and Alzheimer’s. A Greek goddess that could protect coral reefs would be very beneficial because without the reefs, there would be many problems. This goddess would protect the reefs around the world and hurt people who were threatening the safety of them. The destruction of coral reefs is such a devastating issue because the reefs help to give animals homes, who have had their habitats destroyed and limit the furthering of medical research.
There are four named oceans in the world: Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and Arctic. Roughly 70% of the earth’s oxygen is produced by marine plants and only 27% by rainforests. Over 80% of ocean pollution comes from land based activity. This activity can include, but is not limited to, burning oil and not recycling plastics. With knowing those statistics, people should undoubtedly be more concerned with our ocean’s health and well being than what they currently are. Yes, there are a copious amount of websites that accept donations but there are other ways that do not involve breaking the bank to save and protect the oceans. By using reusable plastics, reducing our carbon footprint, and buying ocean-friendly products and food, the oceans dying process could not completely stop, but slow down drastically.
Recycling and going green has been at the forefront of everyone's mind for the last 10 years. It has become a major concern to able to preserve the planet and reverse some of the damage that society has been inflicting over the last two hundred years. Everyone's concerned with emissions and electric cars but the world is in fact over two-thirds water. So naturally what society should be concerned about should be the oceans in the pollution and negative human impact that people have placed on them. Part of the problem as an initial estimate of the amount of plastic is not accurate. Not to mention incredible environmental and ecological effects the plastic has on marine life. Ocean plastic has reached a critical level where human intervention needs to take place.
Throughout many decades there has been a huge environmental problem, not only putting marine life at risk but also human health. Ocean pollution is a big threat to the habitat and still today we haven’t stopped throwing trash, chemicals or toxins into the oceans. During the 1940’s, a technical service of the Army dumped a lot of chemical warfare into the sea, believing the type of gas will dissolve in the water becoming harmless in minutes. At that time, fishermen were able to catch a lot of fish, it wasn’t until they were out of luck and all they could see were dead fish floating on the surface. Many people think that oil spills and trash are the only types of ocean pollution, but they’re also forgetting about chemical, bacterial and thermal pollution. Polluted seas can be the cause of many diseases or infections, especially if people don’t take big measures like telling their kids not to “accidentally” drink water from rivers or lakes when swimming. Marine animals are a big part of our food chain if they carry diseases or toxins we’re also in big danger. Today, there have been many people who have been trying to stop others from polluting the oceans, but they still haven’t been able to convince the whole world to end ocean pollution. The government, instead of wasting money on unnecessary things like building walls or building more towers and creating more trash they should build trash contractors that will help with the trash floating around in the seas. There are
I examine how rising or falling tide can affect the water level of Corte Madera Salt Marsh in this report. The data is from Wednesday (June 19th) and Thursday (June 20th). My hypothesis is that tide and water level have positive relationship. From the result, I learn that the water level and tide have positive relationship. However, when tide changes its direction, the water level is likely to stay or little change.
Looks amazing does not it, The Great Barrier Reef can be seen from the International Space station conversely it is home to over 1500 species of different animals not even counting the coral in the Great Barrier Reef. Moreover one of the seven wonders of the world. Although it looks spectacular you should contemplate this will not last long! Enough for YOU to visit The Great barrier reef
Welcome to the marines I hope you have fun, get good information, and learn a lot. Have you ever been to the marines, if you haven’t you really should you will have a blast. I will explain the climate and location of this biome. I will also explain the plant species and animal species of this biome. Lastly, I will explain the environmental concerns and how humans can help the biome concerns. I will even add a bonus with some fun facts for you.
In 2018 English Broadcaster and Naturalist Sir David Attenborough said, “The Great Barrier Reef will be dead by 2100.” Sir David Attenborough is not far off as already two third of the great barrier reef has either perished away or currently dying. Smart.Co is here to help Australia fix the great barrier reef with the plastic problem one by
Receptacle's for the Ocean Spa. There's two styles of receptacle's in and if for any reason you might need to remove one, were gonna go over the process. This here's the Super Swim Pro...and we'll just sit back and watch. A fine bit of heat, not too much heat you don't want to overheat and heat up the acrylic and make it boil. There in pat. You'll see when this opens up its hollow and were trying to pry the top piece or all of it together. Alright, you don't want to grab it with your hand immediately, cause it'll be hot; you'll burn yourself; beware. Got something moving out the excess plastic weld kicking around there so were going to want to sand that down, not all the way to the center, but just these outside edges, try to sand it down to
Everything in this world we use comes from the ocean in some way. The air we breathe, the water we drink, even the products we use day to day, would not be possible without the ocean. That's why the issue of ocean pollution is so important and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. We depend on the ocean for so much in our life, without it we would surely become extinct. People seem to think that since the ocean is so large and vast, we can dump as much waste as we'd like into it and it will never have an effect on us. However, since we've been polluting the ocean as far back as Roman times, the evidence of ocean pollution becoming a major problem is all too clear.
