  • Pennsylvania Jackfork Group Analysis

    Introduction The Pennsylvania Jackfork Group is located in the Ouachita Mountains, occupying Arkansas and Oklahoma. Several authors interpreted the Pennsylvania Jackfork Group as a classic flysch sequence in a submarine fan setting, dominated by turbidites. Shanmugam and Moiola (1995) reveal contrary evidence for the origin of these beds. They interpret the origin of these beds to be from debris-flow, slump, and bottom-current because slabbed samples from sedimentary features appear “massive” in outcrop, thin sections show variation in vertical grain size, individual units contained in the matrix, and the use of the term “turbidite” in relationship to process sedimentology. The purpose of this paper was to create a depositional model for…

  • Importance Of Water Quality

    used in a salt form, such as, disodium or calcium disodium EDTA. Turbidity Turbidity measures water clarity and how cloudy or muddy the water is, high turbidity levels from suspended and colloidal solids in the water, decrease the passage of light, and plant growth. This in turn affects the fish and invertebrate communities which feed on and live in the plants. Materials that can cause turbidity are silt, microorganisms, plant material and chemicals. However, the most frequent causes of…

  • Exploring Water Quality In Coastal Environments

    Introduction: Water quality is the scientific measurement describing the cleanliness of water and/or the condition of the water being studied. Factors that used to describe water quality are pH, Dissolved Oxygen, Temperature, Turbidity, Nitrogen, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Fecal Coliform, Phosphate, and Total Solids. Water quality is important to know because water is a necessary part of life, and people need to know how clean the water they’re using is. Water quality is important for…

  • 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,…

This conclusion provides support for the current study’s result that low self-esteem individuals were in a significantly worse mood than their high self-esteem counterparts. According to Kernis et al. (1989), the…
