Daughter of the Lake is a film that shows the life in a tiny village in the Andes that has been run dry due to gold extraction. The mine extracts not only the gold, but also the village’s water supply. Water is an important resources for for everyone in the village and, for selfish reasons, villagers are being raped of their resources. The director was able to show the great impact of their water source going away by focusing certain cinematic shots on wells that have run dry and on their land that now looks dry and arid. The film not only shows the direct impact of the people in the village going thirsty, but also how mining contributes to the deforestation and pollution of the world we live in. The people in this village have an important
Muddy waters, or McKinley Morganfield son of Ollie Morganfield and Bertha Jones was a well-known Blues Musician, guitarist born in Issaquena County, Mississippi. Waters father was a farmer who played the blues guitar and his mother sadly died when McKinley was only three years old. Upon his mother’s death McKinley was sent to live with his grandmother Delia Jones in Clarksdale, Mississippi. While living in Clarksdale with his grandmother, McKinley enjoyed playing in the mud it was then he was dubbed Muddy Waters.
If a lake is cut from the ocean and has no large fish as predators (only dragonflies), then the sticklebacks will have a better chance at surviving and reproducing because the sticklebacks will be better adapted to the environment (presence/absence of a pelvic bone) and have little to no predators. The hypothesis was supported. Before the experiment started, background knowledge was collected to better the knowledge of the lakes. Bear Paw Lake is an enclosed lake, meaning no predators could get into the lake.
8. Lake of the Ozarks The Lake of the Ozarks is a reservoir in central Missouri with a surface area of 54,000 acres and 1,150 miles of shoreline. The lake 's serpentine form inspired its nickname "The Magic Dragon". Bass Master tournaments and PGA Club Pro Championships have been held here. The lake is 92 miles long and was created when the 2,543-foot Bagnell Dam to provide hydroelectric power, stopping the flow of the Osage River.
Today, the Salton Basin is 35 miles long, 15 miles wide, and 30 feet deep (2). It is also around 228 feet below sea level (2). It’s current salinity is around 48,000 milligrams per liter, or 37 percent higher than the Pacific Ocean which allows only for salt-tolerant fish and birds to survive (2). The Salton Basin of Imperial Valley is one of the most biologically diverse areas in California with over 400 species and subspecies found there (2). Common mammals that can be found in the Imperial Valley are raccoons, coyotes, striped skunks, desert pocket mice, Merriam 's kangaroo rats, desert cottontails, Valley pocket gophers, and Round-tailed ground squirrels. Some of the mammals that live in Imperial Valley are nocturnal so it may be hard to
I know your answer. This lake spans over 51,000 acres and has more fish than any other lake in the state. The best thing about it is that its ice is always thick enough to hold ice mobiles as recommended. You should definitely set up a shelter in Willard isle and Cleveland bar as you seek to catch these two predominant species. North Dakota-Devils Lake
The effects on these resources are changes in the temporal and spatial extent of permafrost, snow cover, glaciers, and lake ice cover. For example, glaciers in Glacier Bay National Park, West of Juneau, have retreated 60 miles and lost nearly 1 mile in thickness. “As a result, less than 30% of Glacier Bay National Park is now covered by glaciers.” Another place experiencing the effects of climate change in Juneau is the Juneau Icefield, which is the 5th largest icefield in the Western Hemisphere and the source of the Mendenhall glacier and 140 other glaciers. Due to warming temperatures, the Juneau Icefield, which covers 1,500 square miles, is in danger of disappearing.
Children and adults rarely see eye to eye when it comes to differences in the past and present. This is because the idea of innovation is perceived differently by individual generations. In the essay “Once More to the Lake” the author E.B. White struggles with the concept of change, while his son accepts the concept of progress when returning to a family lake house. Through the use of imagery and symbolism the essay conveys how the men see the same place differently.
phosphates and nitrates ) - which is when fertilizers < such as those on farms > can seep through the soil or even run down the soil - called runoff - into the creek causing the water to have more nutrients than it should. ) Depending on how much pollution there is depends on how much algae there is ( the more eutrophication -there is the more nutrients in the water- results in how much algae there will be.) We were also testing on the pH scale ( which measures the acidity or alkalinity of water ) goes from 0 - 14 where 6 - 0 is higher acidity and 8 - 14 is higher alkalinity ( alkalinity is what neutralizes/destroys acid. ) 7 on the pH scale is neutral and that is the ideal water for the ecosystem. The pollution that we were testing for is where the acid came from to begin with.
Geologists have found that the oldest exposed rocks in the national park to date back to 75 million years. The formations resulted from sediments that were largely swept into the area due to the rise of the Rocky Mountains. This eventually resulted in a rising of land above sea level. The deposits consisted of different strata of dark shale beds, many containing fossils of marine life from the Seaway (Stoffer 2003).
Also during its retreat, the Laurentide Ice Sheet also left behind a desolate landscape that only contained the spores of lichen. Eventually, that lichen sprouted and attracted birds which in turn eventually brought all life back to this once ice covered land mass (PBS). Today some of the rocky outcroppings that the
In the beautiful Almaden Lake, a popular San Jose city park off Almaden Expressway, has fish that have the highest concentrations of mercury contamination in California. Based of new state studies. There are four other lakes in Santa Clara County Anderson, Uvas, Calero and Chesbro reservoirs ,rank with the top 20 lakes with fish have the highest mercury concentrations. Almaden Lake is a 66-acre park off the Almaden Expressway. It originated in the 1940s as a rock quarry on Los Alamitos Creek. These creek, Guadalupe Creek, also drains into the Almaden hills, which was once home to the New Almaden mercury mines.
Smooth, oval rocks lined the bank of the secretive lake. Discarded and neglected; overlaid with spongy moss and choked by fallen, decaying leaves from the unclothed and withering trees above. As the lake swelled around the ashen boulders, icy, black water lifelessly lapped against the long, thin beams of wood holding up a rickety pier. The structure was covered in splinters and ragged, iron nails, and as it reached out into the centre of the sombre lake, it became more and more distant. Half-cut beams lined the sides of the pier, as nettle patches hissed from the shore when the water drew too near. Small, stagnant puddles, on the uneven planks of timber wood reflected the dark, brooding sky above - rarely disturbed by the callous slices of moonlight seeping through the clouds, creating a specular reflection through a ripple in the languid water.
