Tidal flooding at the right amount can bring moisture, nutrients, and dissolved oxygen. These help the marsh plants to grow abundant leaves and robust roots. Roots and old leaves form the dark peet which protect the shores and provides homes for abundant wildlife. Some of the animals that frequent salt marshes are ribbed mussels, American black ducks, mummichogs, snowy egrets, great blue herons and sharp tailed
The focus of Cheathem’s historical study is in the South. Specifically, the antebellum South during the 1800s. His book titled “Andrew Jackson. Southerner” also concentrated on life in the heart of Dixie. His in-depth knowledge of the time period and mastery of the Jackson family is evident through this book.
The pressure of the open Atlantic with the added pressure above from the ever changing gulf of Maine create a diverse set up of bits and ends of curious patterns. The water surrounding cape cod has many shoals and banks popular for fishing. Banks and shoals are described as large sand bars shallowly submerged in ocean waters. A bank is a larger shoal. A great number of banks and shoals spread all the way from Newfoundland

2. Methods and Materials 2.1 Study Area Apalachicola Bay is a wide estuarine system located in the Florida panhandle and covers an area about 539 km2 (Figure 1). The bay is relatively shallow with an average depth of 3.0 m. It is one of the most productive natural systems in North America, and highly recognized by the state, federal and international organizations for its pristine water quality and unaffected estuarine habitats (ANERR, 2008). Apalachicola Bay was formed by the deltaic processes of the Apalachicola River, which is a relatively unpolluted alluvial system. The bay is surrounded by four barrier islands: St. Vincent Island, Little St. George Island, St. George Island and Dog Island.
THE EXHILARATING EVERGLADES – TAKE A RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE! A World Heritage Site, a Wetland of International Importance and an International Biosphere Reserve, the Everglades is one of Florida’s most special places. Covering an area of 1.5 million acres it’s the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and consists of a mix of sawgrass marshes, estuarine mangrove forests, tropical hardwood hammocks and is home to a whole host of exotic wildlife. If you have had your fill of theme park frolics, it’s well worth heading south and taking in all the wonders of this most unusual of places with its wide array of exotic animal life. However, you need to plan your trip well because there are actually three separate entrances to the
REFLECTION ESSAY 2 Introduction In the following essay I intend to elaborate on the five main themes of geography as they relate to Weeki Wachee, Fl. “The geology of Florida makes Weeki Wachee a unique playground. The state is a patchwork of springs that discharge fresh water from underground aquifers” (Ayers & Matson, 2010). Ultimately, I plan to describe not only the changes the area has gone through, but the impact these changes has had on the community. General Overview Although, Hernando County consists of many small towns with an insurmountable amount of history the following essay is about Weeki Wachee, which is 4.4 miles north of Spring Hill, Fl., my current residence.
Landforms Haiti is a beautiful place with palm trees and beaches it is perfect for a holiday. Haiti has rivers running through it to all sides of Haiti and into the Caribbean and Atlantic sea. There are also mountains that separate Haiti. One of those is Massif De-la-nord an ancient mountain range with a city that has been around for a very long time. Arbonite and Pedernales are 2 of the biggest rivers in Haiti.
Florida Keys The Florida Keys is a stretch of multiple tiny islands off the coast of Florida into the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. National Geographic states that in that long strip of land “there are approximately 1,700 little island in the Florida Keys”. Some of the islands we may know are Key West, Key Largo, Marathon and Big Pine Key. These keys are a big tourist attraction primarily for fishing, scuba diving. Boating and snorkeling.

Looking at St. Augustine Inlet utilizing different models Angela Antigua Advanced Research Methods for Engineering Introduction Knowing the hydrology and hydrodynamics of an inlet is very beneficial to know when looking at various things in an ecosystem or establishment. From a biological aspect, the hydrology can affect phytoplankton biomass and composition in an estuary. From a coastal engineering aspect, knowing the hydrodynamics can help us better understand sediment transport. For this study, data from St. Augustine Inlet will be analyzed using various models such as CMS and ADCIRC. The ultimate goal for my thesis is to compare models to see which would suit best when looking at tidal inlets.
These banks contain coral rubble, seagrass and macroalgae with other invertebrate taxa, which play a key part in the ecosystem. The bank systems contain essential fish habitats, which provide sheltering and foraging grounds. Past studies have indicated these fish assemblages showed a high diversity and biomass of coral reefs. Most of the biomass in the Florida Keys ecosystem is made up of species that stay in channels for most of the day. These signs show that the bank systems are important for the FKNMS for providing a structural support and high productivity for the biodiversity.
Our beautiful state of Florida is one the richest states when it comes to the diversity of ecosystems. Especially when it comes to our aquatic life such as freshwater and saltwater ecosystems. The state of Florida is one of the states that its water supply is gathered from many different rivers, streams, and springs throughout the whole entire state. All of the aquatic ecosystems are connected in some sort of way. No matter the running water below the surface, the ground water, and or the water on the surface all help our drinkable water supplies, every single industry present in our state, help keep wildlife habitats thriving, improve our agricultural success within our communities.
