Florida economy depends on a range of industries, including tourism, ports, business services and health care, now they all magnify the impact of hurricane Irma. Hurricane Irma has not only devastated thousands of lives and destroyed billions of dollars of property worth in Florida but it has also created long term damage on the economy and on the people on a whole. It is said that Irma caused between $5 billion and $9 million in commercial and industrial real estate damage. As was told by Economist Diane Swonk of DS Economic, hurricane Irma could slow the overall U.S. Economic growth to a 1.8 percent and this is in comparison of a 2.8 projection before the storm. Unemployment is now tracking near or below the average national level.
Away from earth it is usually a gas. This moisture is a blessed treasure, and it is our basic duty to preserve it.” This means that we need to have marine biologists to help preserve the water and the world below it. Being a marine biologist means that you are willing to help not just animals but the world and the water we drink. As a marine biologist there are many opportunities and many risks to take. I know that when I grow up I want to become a marine biologist to help the Earth.
Another natural cause is oceans and hurricanes. Both the ocean waves and hurricanes accelerate erosion, which is a main cause to the marshes disappearing. Something New Yorkers should realize is that "80% of oil and natural gases produced in the U.S. travels through our marshes" as according to page 12. America 's economy could go so wrong if the marshes the oil processes through suddenly disappears. Also, a huge percentage of marine life loves in Louisiana 's marshes.
Overfishing is serious problem in the world today, more than half of the world’s population depends on the oceans for their primary source of food. Harmful fishing methods are unnecessarily killing turtles, dolphins, and destroying critical habitats. Global warming is increasing the temperature of the ocean water, reducing the generation of the base of the food web, plankton. The reducing of the plankton generation is causing major marine ecosystem change. Pollution is also a significant environmental issue HAL is facing.
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.
Today, water damage losses range from $2,000 to $30,000 with a mean of around $5,000. And especially for us here in Florida, the high humidity conditions that exist after water damage create the perfect conditions for mold growth. So, what can you do about it? For starters, you can be on the lookout for leaks. A leak can be slow and gradual, taking years to detect until significant property damage occurs, or there may be large leaks that quickly create a wide array of damaging results.
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.
More humans die in rip currents than shark attacks or natural disasters. Rip currents happen when the waves moves from deep to shallow water; which causes a break in the shoreline. A rip current can move 1-2 miles per minute, causing people to drown. It is important for lifeguards to help people when a rip current occurs. Life Saver by John DiConsiglio, Rip Current Safety by National Weather Service, and How to Survive Rip Currents by UNSWTV gives good ideas on how lifeguards can prepare.
Glick says “Tuvalu, a small country in the South Pacific, has begun formulating evacuation plans.” However, Tuvalu is not the only area where evacuations are being held for the sake of increasing sea levels. Subsidence, a process of gradual sinking of an area of land, is helping to accelerate the rate at which Southern Louisiana falls below the average sea level calling for evacuations from time to time (Glick). Once climate change is understood to have destructive effects on the environment, the government can then start participating in different methods to attempt to control
Drilling into Disaster: BP in the Gulf of Mexico Gulf of Mexico is one of the valuable place in which it has variety of marine life, such as fish, shrimp and other species The issues of incident on spill oil should be on concerned as it leads to this disaster for human being and environment. The case is discussed how BP company responses. It means how its board and management accountability, corporate responsibility, risk management, code of conduct and whistleblowing, compensation practices, and stakeholder communications react on this disaster. With regard to the disaster, BP CEO should have behaved appropriately because he should have responsibility on his job and should give his employees a better solution better than not saying anything. The problem was still there even BP change CEO to Dudley.
The earth is heating up 500 billion tons of ice will collapse. Then one and a half feet of sea level will rise and then the water would move 150 feet inland in Florida. If this keeps up the world will slowly but surely heat up. Without humans trying to help the environment the world could flood. Some of the problem is Human responsibility and how it is ruining the earth and how the environment and nature will fall because of Global Warming.
Hurricanes can be powerful storms that form over ocean water in the tropics. Hurricane Sandy occurred in 2012 along the east coast along the United States. Hurricanes cause wide havoc to many coastal cities and inland cities and are very dangerous. First, there are many causes of hurricanes. Hurricanes are a storm with violent wind in particular a tropical cyclone in the tropics.
She starts off by explaining what ocean acidification is and how it affects the shells of marine organisms. Madin also quotes Ries, the lead in the experiment conducted. This use of quoting gives me a primary source of information, which is strong in a paper. The experiment conducted is also explained in great detail because Madin gives us the number of tanks, the different CO2 levels, and examples of the organisms used. I can use this experiment in my paper to show how ocean acidification will shift the balance of the ocean.
