    A 2010 survey of 14 industrialized countries found that skepticism about the danger of global warming was highest in Australia, Norway, New Zeeland and the United States, in that order, correlating with high per capita emission of carbon dioxide(Wikipedia). Furthermore there are so many ways society is damaging the ecosystem, some of these issues are brought upon by nature, but the majority of them are caused by man-made pollutants. One issue that is becoming large scale is global warming.…

    The most likely causes for the dead zone in the Great Lakes are the amount of phosphorus nitrogen and fertilizer running off into the lake. When the lake becomes rich in these nutrients and you add warmer temperatures into the equation you can expect an algal bloom. Once the bloom dies the decomposition depletes much of the oxygen in the water which is severe because of the size of the algal bloom. This coupled with things such as low water inflow and temperature of water are the most popularly…

    imbalance in biogeochemical cycling and lead to problems such as cultural eutrophication and fish kills. Biogeochemical cycling is defined as the chemical element flow between the living and nonliving components of the ecosystem. This is the cycle of nitrogen, phosphorus and carbon being converted into organic substances of plants and animals that are released back into the environment. There are three ways that human activities cause an imbalance of biogeochemical cycling on a daily basis. The…

    how it interacts with herbicides. The lab showed the participants on a small scale how eutrophication occurs and how it doesn't take a long time for algae to take over an area. Nitrogen and Phosphorus are usually found in fertilizers but not always at the same time. A study done said “ Concentrations of phosphorus and nitrogen in surface waters are being regulated in the United States and European Union. Human activity has raised the concentrations of these nutrients, leading to eutrophication…

    The FTIR spectra of four phosphazenium salts and P5+ are shown in Figure S1. Four phosphazenium salts have characteristic absorptions at 2850 and 2930 cm-1, belonging to the stretching vibration of -CH2- and -CH-, respectively, and this peak in the P5+ represents the absorption of –CH3. All the five compounds exhibit absorption at 960, 1230, and 1442 cm-1 corresponding to the stretching vibrations of P–N. In the FTIR spectrum of Cy4P1+BF4-, the peaks at 1633 and 3432 cm-1 belong to water because…

    to all lakes over time as the weathering of rocks and soils from the surrounding area that leads to an accumulation of nutrients in the water. It can also be caused by run-offs of fertilisers. Three of the key components of modern fertilisers are nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. After a rainy season these nutrients that were not absorbed, run off into waterways such as dams, lakes, rivers, streams, ponds and even sometimes swimming pools. The fertiliser triggers the growth of plants that are…
