  • Nutrient Management Plan Of Lake Okeechobee

    A nutrient management plan will be implemented for farmland that borders Lake Okeechobee since this lake is the main cause of algal blooms. [9] The following factors will be used to assess nutrient content on land and will be used to determine how much fertilizer can be used. Livestock population: monitoring livestock population can help estimate potential nutrient content Feed management: Animal feed has various nutrients that can pollute soil and water Farming practices: Farming practices can add unwanted nutrient pollution from the use of fertilizer and other chemicals. Animal and water waste handling: Animal waste contains nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen, which can pollute surrounding waters. Proper handling of waste can help alleviate nutrient concentration. Soil testing for nutrient concentrations: A variety of soil tests will be used…

  • Loughberry Lake Lab Report

    This experiment was designed to test what the limiting nutrient was in Loughberry Lake, as well as examine the trophic state of the lake. In order to find out what the limiting nutrient was, we performed a few different tests. We began with a secchi disk test to see the transparency of the water. Then, we took water samples that we later used to test the turbidity levels of the water after adding varying amounts of phosphorous and nitrogen. Phosphorous was the limiting nutrient in the lake,…

    Although, some seas may have greater concentration. For instance, the Dead Sea and the Great Salt Lake have a much higher salt concentration. First, the concentration level is raised to 25.8% NaCI after going through the condensers, which are heat transferring device that converts vapor into liquid. The reason for the conversion is to later be easily able to remove any impurities in the mixed water solution through the process of crystallization. Second, through the sun and wind’s energy, salt…
