External link to Discuss Florida’s environmental problems of fossil fuels, tourism, population growth, water, mining and waste. Explain how Florida’s problems fit with national and global problems. Please be specific and use supportive details.
External link to Explain the spill response and cleanup problems associated with water-soluble liquids, water-soluble solids, and water-insoluble liquids.
Florida is a state with many environmental problems that need to be addressed. These issues range from fossil fuel use and tourism, to population growth, water pollution, mining and waste disposal. Understanding these issues in the context of national and global problems can help us better understand the scope of Florida’s environmental challenges. Fossil fuel use is one of the main sources of air pollution […]
External link to Describe how you would use a decision tree analysis to determine if foam may be effective for vapor control?
Spills occur as a result of accidents, improper storage or transportation, or natural disasters. Spill response and cleanup problems vary depending on the type of material spilled. In this essay, we will discuss the spill response and cleanup problems associated with water-soluble liquids, water-soluble solids, and water-insoluble liquids. Water-Soluble LiquidsWater-soluble liquids are materials that can be dissolved in water. Examples include sugar, salt, ethanol (alcohol), […]
External link to Compare between environmental deaths and homicide investigations
A decision tree analysis is a system of making decisions based on the evaluation of multiple possibilities. It is an important tool for problem-solving and risk management, as it allows one to assess the outcomes associated with different options. In this case, it can be used to determine whether foam may be effective for vapor control in order to save lives and property and protect […]
External link to Find a significant natural disaster event that has occurred in the past (the more recent the better) and provide a summary of the event, including a description of the affects the event had on humans and society.
Environmental deaths and homicide investigations are two different kinds of criminal investigations, each with their own sets of legal considerations. The purpose of this essay is to compare the differences between environmental deaths and homicide investigations in order to better understand the complex issues that they face. The first difference between environmental deaths and homicides is in how they […]
External link to Provide at least two modern examples of how the United States has increased its food production, and discuss how these changes have affected the environment, and what impact they have on food safety?
The 2011 Tohoku Earthquake in Japan was one of the most recent and significant natural disasters to ever occur. The magnitude 9 earthquake struck offshore from Fukushima prefecture, Japan on March 11th, 2011 at 2:46pm local time. It was the largest recorded earthquake to ever hit Japan and the fourth most powerful in the world since modern record keeping began. At its epicenter just off […]
External link to Discuss some environmental problem, solution, or new findings from March 2015 to current.
The United States has long been a leader in food production, and over the last few decades there have been several technological advances that have increased US crop yields while also addressing environmental concerns. These two modern examples of how the US has increased its food production are precision agriculture and genetic engineering. Precision Agriculture (PA) is an approach […]
External link to What are the hazardous characteristics of e-waste?
Climate change is one of the most pressing environmental issues facing the world today. In March 2015, a United Nations report found that global warming was happening faster than expected and that it would be difficult to reverse its effects. This report highlighted how urgent the situation was and underscored the need for effective solutions to mitigate climate change. […]
External link to Discuss how the principle of sand filtration has evolved and the impact that it has had in conjunction with chlorination on the occurrence of waterborne diseases.
E-waste is defined as any item of electrical or electronic equipment that has been discarded by its owner. It includes anything from computers, televisions, and microwaves to cell phones and other digital devices. E-waste can contain a variety of hazardous substances, ranging from radioactive materials to lead, mercury and cadmium. While e-waste comprises only about 2 percent of all municipal solid waste in the United […]
External link to tropical rain forest or tundra?
The principle of sand filtration has evolved over the past few centuries due to advancements in technology and a growing understanding of how waterborne diseases spread. This process is used to remove contaminants from water, typically through layers of coarse and fine sand that trap particles as water passes through them. This filtration method can also be enhanced by […]
Primary net productivity is a measure of how much energy an ecosystem produces per unit area over a given period of time. It is typically measured in terms of the amount of carbon assimilated by plants as they photosynthesize and grow. This value can be used to calculate the gross primary production (GPP) and net primary production (NPP). Gross Primary Production is the rate at […]
