    Domoic Acid Toxicosis – Toxic Algae Poisoning in California Sea Lions Jasmine Bagha AHS F050A 08/04/17 Introduction Harmful algal blooms (HABs) which were once a rarity in marine ecosystems are now reoccurring events that devastate recreational areas to deep water ecosystems (Anderson et al., 2016). Specifically for California sea lions (CSLs), HABs through bioaccumulation lead to domoic acid (DA) poisoning. Domoic Acid is naturally occurring in algal blooms; however, due to anthropogenic

  • Water Pollution Essay

    1343 Words  | 6 Pages

    Since the industrial revolution, humans have centered our population masses near lakes, rivers, and coastal areas around the world. The industrial revolution has given us the ability to move mountains and alter the landscape to suit our needs; moreover, we have utilized these natural sources of water for irrigation of our farmlands and the drainage systems of our waste for hundreds of years. "Harmful algal blooms are a major environmental problem in all 50 states. Also known as red tides, blue-green

    1. Soccer is one of the most demanding of all sports. The game is played on one of the largest fields of any sport, for the longest sustained time and with the least amount of breaks. Players in a soccer team are in continuous activity as they compete for loose balls, move to encourage teammates, rotate positions and run to make a space or test opponents. Running, jumping, sprinting movements in relation with sudden changes of acceleration and route outweigh the play. The power of the game ranges

    Stoichiometric Reactions with Phosphoric Acid By Jaime Conklin Partner: Deanna Ryan CHE 120-03 Instructor: Mr. Cusumano September 30, 2015 Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to examine the stoichiometric relationship between reagents and the identity of the products by using three acid/base neutralization reactions of a triprotic acid, phosphoric acid, and varying molar equivalents of sodium hydroxide. The data will be used to determine the formula weight of the products

  • The Effect Of Temperature And Ph Levels On Enzyme Activity

    926 Words  | 4 Pages

    group of protein and protein can break easily by acid, base, and hot temperature. To experiment our question, we used catalase solution, 3% H2O2 solution, 0.1 M HCl solution, 0.1 M NaOH solution, a beaker, an O2 gas sensor, sensor interface on a Chromebook, pH paper, and safety gloves. Therefore, we conducted experiments to test how enzyme activity in different conditions. Plus, we predicted that if temperature increases or enzyme have contacts with acid or base, enzyme activity will decrease. We

  • Meat Tenderness, And Consumer Perceptions

    Meat Tenderness, and Consumer Perceptions Introduction The current climate of the relationship between the food-producing industry and consumers is volatile. Current self-appointed consumer leaders such as Vani Hari, known as the “Food Babe” ( pressure food industry sectors for changes in products. Reasoning for these changes largely reside in the practices of fear-mongering, using terminology outside the knowledge of the readers these leaders attract, exacerbating worst-case scenarios

    Determining the pH of Household Items March 22, 2016: Sara, Sam Introduction: Everyday household items can be seen as just “household items”. However, it is often not realized that we could actually determine the pH very easily. It could also be important to know the pH in everyday life. For example, it is important to keep track of human pH levels. Some people are curious to see the pH of their own body, which is a great use to keep acidic levels leveled. Another use in real life is determining

  • The Depth Of The River Affect Its Overall Ph From Mid July 2015-

    801 Words  | 4 Pages

    Question: Does the depth of the river affect its overall pH from mid december 2015- to early january 2016? Knowledge Probe: According, pH is a measure of the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. Solutions with a high concentration of hydrogen ions have a low pH and solutions with a low concentrations of H+ ions have a high pH. A pH of 7 is the most neutral you can get and 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the most basic. each level is 10 times more basic/

  • Investigating The Relationship Between Ph And Water Hardness

    2502 Words  | 11 Pages

    The purpose of this investigation was to determine the relationship between pH and water hardness. Water samples from above the Mount Morgan mine site and below the Mount Morgan mine site were also compared. 8.1 Analysis of the Data It was hypothesised that the water sample from above the mine site would be of better water quality than the sample from below the mine site. It was found that this was, in fact, the case. As seen in Table 7.2, the above sample had lower acidity, hardness and conductivity
