    system towards the environment, which may help with improvements and the growth of the land by applying smaller amounts of water over a longer amount of time. This helps extend the watering time for plants in order to prevent soil erosion. If the irrigation needs have to be changed a drip irrigation system is very easy to modify and adjust to grazers and farmers. This type of system only delivers water when its needed to be given. When plant and land conditions get moist, this can help against the fight of funfal diseases to control the spread of disease. As well Many soil conservation policies, practices and other forms of educational programs have been sought to be very resourceful towards the fight against soil degradation in the United States. (Withgott, J., & Laposata, M, Fifth ed., p. 239). As technology grows and times goes on, it 's a good thing to invest in newer irrigation tools and methods that may be more beneficial to the environment in order to provide a safer way and quicker way to provide against the conflict of soil erosion and…

    Abstract The investigation was conducted see the effects of salinity on pant life more closely, with series of plants watered with different percentages of salt water. To determine how different salinity levels effect the plants growth, and also observe the other effects, if any, that may occur to the plant. The experiment was set up and each plant was watered with different levels of salinity, and measurements of the height and number of leaves was taken twice a week. The results concluded that…

    Introduction In a marsh environment, it can be assumed by many that the studied environment exhibits a descending pattern as the land meets the ocean in a liminal boundary. This hypothetical descending pattern is both literal – an idea of where the elevation of the land decreases as the marsh reaches towards the marsh front, and figurative – that data taken from sample sites at the marsh such as pH, amount of organic matter deposited within the soil, and amounts of specific sediments deposited…

    The only problem that doesn’t hold a solution is the clearing of ecosystems and loss of biodiversity. Most of the solutions involve soil conservation using policies and other farming techniques. Crop rotation helps to restore nutrients in the soil and minimize erosion. Contour farming helps to slow runoff and capture soil, also some plant buffer strips of vegetation on the borders to lessen erosion and water pollution(Brennan, Withgott pg. 239). There’s a few other types of farming techniques…

    The limestone that makes up the Nullarbor plain is a former seabed, made up of calcaneous skeletons of sea animals and red algae which were uplifted from the combination of continental uplift and lower sea levels, 15 MYA. (21) With the development of the Karst limestone plains, a thin clay soil layer formed. This was followed by a general drying of the climate which prevented significant erosion of the surface. A wet phase 5-3 MYA led to the formation of the Nullarbor caves as the limestone…

    sampling in determining soil nutrient levels. Soil samples collected from Flinders Campus were used to determine their pH, salinity, ammonium, nitrate, phosphate, and nitrite levels. Introduction Unless there is a specific problem detected, the most common reason for undertaking soil analysis is to detect the levels of essential nutrients (Guo, 2009). The commonly analysed nutrients in most samples submitted to the laboratory include macronutrients like potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen as…
