For this case study, I selected these indicators because they met indicator evaluation criteria for UNCCD (15) and the SMART concept – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-related. The indicators estimation will depends on the Remote Sensing (RS) data. As explained in (16a), the RS (Landsat) data is suitable for quantification of spatio-temporal desertification or (ESAs) because it allows researcher to go back and examine the change. Here, I should mention that desertification is a slow process which takes years to happen (17a). For the RS data, I will request the Landsat data for Biskra for three years.
This research is helpful because it will allow business owners and tourists know when a red tide will occur and when to stay away from waterways. Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done about the marine life until they are actually affected by it. The United States is working on creating a building to focus on the prediction of red tides: Its goal is to improve existing models to explain more accurately and then predict the complex progression of a red-tide bloom. Successful forecasts could, for instance, allow fishermen to scoop up shellfish before a bloom takes hold, warn businesses to brace for a drop in beach tourism or alert managers to which environmentally sensitive areas they should be monitoring most closely (Schrope 24).
There are many examples of geo visualization technologies that the United States can adopt. These include the digital globes such as Google Earth, 3D scene- and movie-rendering packages (Jubb, Paul and Wenju 260). These technologies can be applied to create a number of geo-visualization products to enable a better understanding of the complex array of scientific data and models being created to inform policy-makers and land managers on climate change. Through such communication technologies, the United States will be in a position of telling understanding land use data and land
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.
Using coordinates or simple objectives allows the ability to make proper determination. Geographic data allows identifiable information to be offered to subscribers with the encouragement of geographical indicators. Display tools offer a realism of visual effects and the most applicable advantages. Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, spatial statics and Geographic Information Systems (GIS): Systems of these nature offer geographers collaborative and analyzed information far more unique than traditional research techniques (Geographic Information Systems as an Integrating Technology: Context, Concepts, and Definitions,2015). Lastly, geographic reality and space relation must be gathered using input and output of data and formulaic sequences, but the tools make them applicable to user.
It can result from an increase in births, a decline in mortality rates, an increase in immigration, or an unsustainable biome and depletion of resources.. Can speeds up the process of natural land subsidence. This process includes the increase in population size, Increase in water needs, High water necessities, Increase in groundwater Pumping to fulfill the water need, Over-pumping of ground water, Speeds up the process of natural land
Elia Kazan’s 1954 film On the Waterfront is a crime drama starring legendary actor Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy, a former prize-fighting boxer turned dock worker employed by Johnny Friendly (portrayed by Lee J. Cobb), the corrupt leader of the local dock workers union. After witnessing the murder of a fellow co-worker and friend, Joey Doyle, Terry is faced with the difficult decision of speaking against Friendly, a long-time family friend and the boss of his older brother Charley, in court in relation to the mob-esque activities of the dockers union, or keeping his mouth shut in an effort to preserve the relationship, and also his own safety.
Assignment: Coastal management • Explain what is coastal management • Discuss the types of coastal management and when they are used • The pros and cons of the types of coastal management Word limit is 2500 including references. Why is it important to defend the coast? Coastlines today, tend to be very heavily populated areas that are of high economic value due to tourism as well as key access point to ocean fisheries resources and sea transport routes. However, coastlines are particularly prone to flooding, whereby these fragile ecosystems take a long time to recover if they are degraded or destroyed.
Ocean City is proud of its dazzling white sand beaches as well as its temperate weather. It is also famous for the Boardwalk, the entertainment and shopping center here. The Boardwalk also houses a lot of the world 's well known players in hospitality industry. Here are a few of the deluxe Ocean City hotels and accommodations particularly found in Boardwalk.
Now another natural cause of global warming is the rising of the seas. The biggest reason for sea level rising is that global warming is causing the air to be warmer and that 's causing glaciers and ice-caps to melt. Sea level rise would affect about 11 out of the 15 biggest cities in the world. The reason this is happening because gases are being released into the atmosphere which is causing the temperatures to rise, which causes the seas to rise. Sea level rising means more money that we have to spend for people living on the coastlines because coastal populations are growing and people are crowding into coastal areas and that area could be underwater in a few years if sea levels keep rising how they have been.
INTRODUCTION The Cretaceous Period, spanning 65.5-146 million years ago (Mya), was a world different from what we are familiar with today. Planetary changes during this period included the extinction of dinosaurs and drastic global warming. The breakup of the super continent Pangea had started about 30 Mya, and seaways had begun to form and cover landmass that had once been a part of the super continent (Geologic Time). Today, scientists know that one of these landmasses, the North American continent as we now know it, was at one point covered by a vast inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway.
The gold coast is situated in South East Queensland 80km for the capital city of Brisbane which is located in the subtropical climate. This means that these regions are the warmest parts of the two temperate zones. The weather at the gold coast has 245 days of fine and sunny days nearly each year. However in the subtropical region it does tend to get humid and are often followed by tropical storms. The average rainfall for the Gold coast is 1400 millimeters of rainfall each year. This normally occurs during the summer months during December to February. However statistics show that January and February experience the highest amount of rainfall. During the summer months the average temperature that the Gold Coast reaches is normally 20- 28
While its geographical position close to the equator would correspond to a tropical climate, with dense vegetation, several factors make the Peruvian coast extremely arid desert. On the one hand, the presence of the Andes to the east prevents wind and moisture laden clouds reach the coast; secondly, the presence of the Peruvian or Humboldt Current, cold water, generates a phenomenon typical of the Peruvian coast, which prevents the presence of tropical rains, providing instead moisture accumulation by way of a dense mantle: the fog.
According to the NOAA tide data the sea rises Between 0.8 to 3.3 mm Per year with an average rate of 1.8 per year. Greenland and Antarctica together hold enough ice, that if it all melted sea levels would rise more than 80 meters. Rising tide data published by NOAA has suggested that low lying coastal areas will be affected the most by this problem. Places Like the low lying parts of the Netherlands, Brazil, Egypt, America, Japan, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and
