Comparing rocks Minerals make up rocks. Rocks are formed in many environments upon and within the Earth's crust. There are three types of rock, each formed in a different `way. Igneous rock , formed by the cooling of magma (molten rock) inside the Earth or on the surface. Sedimentary rocks, formed from the products of weathering by cementation or precipitation on the Earth’s surface.
Due to stress they shift and cause the earthquake. that zone is more subject to seismic disasters. Tectonic, volcanic, collapse and explosion, are the four different types of earthquakes. A tectonic earthquake is one that occurs when the earth 's crust breaks due to geological forces on rocks and adjoining plates that cause physical and chemical changes. A volcanic earthquake is when a volcano erupts and shakes the plates.
Altogether, temperature, density, and convection currents work together to cause an earthquake. The layer of the Earth are made up of the lithosphere, asthenosphere, mesosphere, and the core. In the lithosphere, there is the upper rigid mantle, oceanic crust, and continental crust. The oceanic crust and continental crust is what makes up the lithosphere. Inside these layers, temperature and density all play a role in the layers of the Earth.
2 Nov. 2014. The Environmental Magazine published an article about factory farming, and its impact on the environment and climate changes. While many people go uninformed animals from factory farms are major polluters emitting a large percentage of greenhouse gasses in recent years. The side effects of raising animals in factory farms for food have large impacts on the environment, and public health. With the need for more animal pastures, and grazing land deforestation is occurring globally.
Tsunamis happen when the plates on the crust of the earth move, therefore moving the entire plate so that the water rises and is pushed forward, therefore causing a tsunami (Drohan, 2009, p.21). These tectonic plates are everywhere, under everything from the biggest mountain to the smallest hill. Though it is infrequent, volcanoes have been known to cause tsunamis. It happens when to volcano begins to erupt, but instead of coming out from the top of the volcano a lateral blast shoots out from the side. Next, a quickly moving avalanche of lava pours into the water near it causing the wave to travel to distant coastlines (Springer, 2005).
This type of eruption is driven by thermal contraction where the temperature difference between the two results in violent water-lava interactions. The eruption usually has bursts of tremors, geothermal activity, mushroom cloud formation, and a large amount of ash. These tremors can result in earthquakes and geothermal activity refers to the melting of the ice. When the volcano erupts, a mushroom cloud can be formed from 30 km wide and 15 km high. In addition, ash is formed by the magma and glacial ice.
Plate tectonics is a theory that Earth’s crust is composed of nearly a dozen plates, which have shifted around the surface of the Earth over time. This theory provides a reasonable explanation for how mountains formed, and why there are earthquakes and volcanoes. Additionally, this
Underneath the earth are plate tectonics, and when the earth drifts apart the plate tectonics move and cause many things to happen. Many of our landforms were created because of this. Three examples are volcanos, earthquakes, and mountains. To begin, volcanos are a great example of landforms being created by the movement of plate tectonics. When the plate tectonics move, it causes pressure inside the earth that creates volcanoes.
Climate change is the alteration of all the climatic parameters, including; temperature, precipitation and weather events. This is due to natural causes and the human actions on the planet. Usually climate changes are produced during decades, allowing flora and fauna to adopt to the new climatological conditions, however due to the manmade actions such as industries, it had a huge impact on the climate. It has created a consumerist generation, that has increasingly generated disposable products, all of this generates gas emission in the atmosphere contributing to rising temperatures and global warming. WHO’s response to this problem is to create a new work plan on climate change and individuals affected by this problem.
Internalizing Externalities: A Complex Approach This introductory section provides a brief overview of “internalizing externalities” worldview and its key characteristics. Every subject of economic activity affects environment surrounding it, which may include water, plants, soil, animals, people, other subjects and even weather and climate. The effects caused by economic activity are called “externalities” and they can be positive or negative. Regarding the environment, externalities are mostly negative: air and water pollution, extinction of species, weather and climate change. In response to the rapidly deteriorating environmental situation (as a result of industry development and extended manufacturing), some governments introduced special
