  • Concepts Of Lignocellulosic-Based Biomass

    The remaining biomass (algal residues) primarily made of protein and carbohydrate was subjected to anaerobic digestion, producing biogas for power generation. However, recent conceptual approach is considering the energetic yield form algal biomass for the co-production of other fermented products (e.g., sugar to ethanol, butanol or other biofuels), as it could improve the economics and sustainability of the whole utilization of algae as a feedstock [45]. Economic considerations and principles…

  • Case Study: The Great Barrier Reef

    (4) The East Australian Current keeps the temperature in the region of the great barrier reef in this range as seen in the **picture**.

  • Why Is Coral Bleaching Important

    The corals that make reefs around the world may look like one giant organism but they’re actually some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet, with many small features working together to support a variety of marine life. They are typically found in warm, shallow waters of tropical environments, especially in the Pacific Ocean. Thousands of jellyfish-like animals called polyps, connect together to form colonies. These colonies host algae, that provide corals with food, as well as their…

  • Effects Of Global Warming On Coral Reefs

    Global warming has many effects on the world, but it especially has an impact on the ocean. Global temperature rise can affect many ecosystems, and the species within them. Coral Reefs Coral reefs are valuable resources for ocean life. Coral and algae have a symbiotic relationship, with the algae living in the coral and being the primary food source for the coral. As a consequence, this symbiotic relationship provides habitats for small fish and plants due to the abundance of food found in the…
