How that is happening is the acid in the rain erodes the rock but it is not dangerous acid to us humans. When the rock gets eroded then it turns into ions which is an atom or molecule. When these ions are made they get carried away rivers or runoff streams and they usually end in the ocean. When these ions end up in the ocean they dissolved and there is two ions, chloride and sodium and they take up 90 percent out of all the dissolved ions in the ocean. Chloride and sodium are salty so that is why there is a lot of salt in the ocean.
Many people are familiar with tanker accidents, since they are highly publicized, and they release large volumes of oil into the ocean. Only a small percentage of global oil spills are related to tanker accidents due to explosions, hull failure, or running aground, however. These spills tend to be very harmful because of the sheer volume of oil released at once, and they pose a serious threat to marine animals and seabirds. Such disasters frequently bring attention to issues with safe oil handling, which can lead to reforms in petroleum regulation. Oil spills in the water can also be caused by natural seepage.
It is inefficient and impractical to tackle with the pollutants all at once. Ocean acidification and global warming are different results of climate change. The two share many common sources of the problem. However, people have more consensus on global warming as compared to ocean acidification. To alleviate the current trend of global warming, varieties of laws and actions have been in place.
A known mass of seawater (Mcw + Mf1 + Mf2) at temperature Tcw, and salt concentration Sf, is pumped into the condenser to condense the steam into liquid, where its temperature increases to Tf. The cooling water, Mcw, is discharged into the sea. The feed seawater 1, Mf1, and the feed seawater 2, Mf2, are chemically treated and de-aerated before being pumped to the primary evaporator and secondary evaporator, respectively. In the primary evaporator, the feed seawater 1 was heated up by the low-temperature heat source, where its temperature is raised from Tf to the evaporating temperature, Tp. In the secondary evaporator, the feed seawater 2 was heated up by the mixed steam from the steam ejector, where its temperature is raised from Tf to the evaporating temperature, Ts.
It has some similarities with the SINTEF concept. This concept’s solution is based on forming small hydrate particles from an associated gas and water before they enter the pipeline. The hydrate will then flow with oil in a three-phase flow from there to shore (production site) together with surplus gas (Gudmundsson 2002). This will eliminate the problems of hydrate and wax deposit in the pipeline in a steady state. In this concept, the production stream has to be cooled at the heat exchanger unit, and hydrates created, before it reaches the
The U.S. Navy is devoted to protecting international trade routes from such occurrences. Counter piracy teams are placed around the world to lend aid to any nation’s vessels, including America’s enemies, that come under attack by pirates. This allows for the quick and easy transfer of goods allowing prices to remain low internationally. The U.S. is one of many nations that cooperate to ensure the safety of international trade, but no other nation safeguards a larger portion of the world’s waters than the U.S. Navy. This is because no other nation has the manpower or economic means to do so.
Marine life is dying and as the result the oceanic ecosystem is threatened. Before, it was assumed that because the ocean was so big, vast, and deep, that the effects of dumping trash and littering into the sea will only have minimal consequences. But after decades of littering, we have seen the consequences. Oil spills, floating plastic, and toxic wastes
Moreover, the total amount of toxins and debris discharged by human beings is incredibly increasing in today 's world. Most of the waste produced on land is either intentionally or unconsciously discharged into the oceans. Marine pollution and aquatic debris can utterly destroy the oceans causing extinction of the marine creatures. Innovative techniques should be implemented in the law to prevent the marine environment from any further damage. In order to improve the marine environment, the government and the Environment Public Authority of Kuwait should take immediate actions that can influence the society and help in minimizing aquatic debris and pollution.
in this one, there is pollution (oil) in the water, and after the universal indicator was inserted there was just a little slight change in color, the color was like how it was in the first bottle, but this one had pollution (oil) in it bottle with half oil, salt water, and sand on bottom… this one as shown above it is very noticeable, it is easy to see the pollution (oil) on the top the sand on the bottom and the bold blue color in the middle, indicating that the the pH level had changed the most bottle with salt water and sand.. As depicted in this picture the second bottle, a slight change occurred and it was noticeable, when sand is present bottle with salt water… it is clear to see that the water only changed a slight, after the indicator was put Second trial/after 48 hours from left to right: bottle with salt water... the color changed a slight bottle with salt water and sand...the pH has changed a little more since the sand is present, so the change in color is
It is also ruining the amazing marine biodiversity that South Africa has. Pollution not only comes from industrial sector such as oil companies, but also from littering and sewage. Plastic pollution is one of the types of pollution that effect the marine environment. It is impossible to give an accurate estimation of the amount of plastic that is being polluted into the ocean. However, in 1975 the global fishing fleet alone dumped approximately 135 400 tons of plastic fishing gear and 23 600 tons of synthetic packaging materials
