In The Cold Equations Barton the Pilot of the EDS ship finds a stowaway who boarded the ship illegally and says “These ships are given barely enough fuel to reach their destination, and if you stay aboard, your added weight will cause it to use up all its fuel before it reaches the ground. It will crash then, and you and I will die and so will six men waiting for the fever

“Round she spun, reeling under the impact, filled with reeking brimstone, shipmates pitching out her, bobbing around like Seahawks swept along by the whitecaps past the trim black hull and the god cut short their journey home forever” (Odyssey 12. 448-452). The harsh punishment describes the ship as a she who’s shipmates dive out of the burning ship like Seahawks as the Zeus again hinders Odysseus and his men from going home. The theme of disobedience is very prominent in this episode. The poor choices Odysseus makes as well as his foolish men.
During the trip, however, the Tsimtsum crosses path with a massive storm and begins sinking. The crew members throw Pi overboard, but Pi, amidst the chaos, miraculously is able to board a lifeboat. From the lifeboat, Pi sees “the ship [sinking, making] a sound like a monstrous metallic burp” (Martel 97). Pi witnesses his whole life and family sink into the great depths of the Pacific ocean before his eyes. This traumatic event scars Pi mentally with an unhealable wound.Very much like an archetypal hero, Pi leaves his familiar world and crosses the threshold into a foreign world as he prepares for his strength of will to be tested.
There are a couple different theories on how the island came about. Ballard says, the legend of Atlantis is the only logical reason this island is gone. Some proof is cataclysmic floods and volcanic explosions have happened throughout history, including one event that had some similarities to the story of the loss of Atlantis. About 3,600 years ago, a gigantic volcanic eruption ruined the island of Santorini in the
The Dragon, who is described as a worm, is thrown “over the sea cliff into the ocean / they tumbled the dragon, the deadly worm / Let the sea tide swallow the guarder of gold” (99). The Dragon is a character the soldiers couldn’t despise more, as it had just killed their beloved Beowulf. When it is said they tumble a worm over the cliff to be swallowed up by the sea, they paint a grave, hellish image of where they believe their despised enemy deserves to be. Beowulf is built a grand funeral monument, atop the cliff, as he wished, for all the seamen to see. Beowulf wishes to show these men, in the sea, that they too should aspire to
Pain is apart of life, there is no way around it. Pain can be caused physically and psychologically. In the poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, there is an Albatross that greets the crew, the Mariner unexpectedly kills the great seabird. His actions cause unfortunate events to everyone on board the ship, especially the Mariner. The Mariner experiences external and internal conflicts during his voyage.
Some of these movements will be below the ocean, which will automatically force out an enormous amount of seawater. All that water will shoot up and then come crashing down, with one side charging towards the west and the other towards the east. Within 15 minutes of the earthquake, that 700-mile liquid wall will hit the Northwest coast. It is predicted that the combination of the earthquake and the tsunami, will result in 13,000 people killed and the Pacific Northwest totally wiped out and destroyed. Not only is it terrifying that the odds of this big hit are one in ten, but also the fact that people are not even preparing for this natural disaster.
Natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis can have a devastating effect on the coral in that area. The 2004 tsunami in south East Asia completely obliterated everything in its path, destroyed hundreds of ancient coral reefs (anthozoa) in these tropical waters. Many species of coral, such as the stag horn coral; a hard species of coral that branches out to look like deer antlers, are today classed as an endangered species due to the severe decrease in the corals range. How viable are the artificial coral reefs (anthozoa) in replacing the natural reef environment? What are its advantages and disadvantages?
Deep sea mining is a relatively new mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean floor. in mining sites are usually an active and extinct hydrothermal vents at about 1,400 – 3,700 m below the ocean’s surface.The vents create sulfide deposits, which contain valuable metals such as silver, gold,copper, manganese.The deposits are mined using either hydraulic pumps or bucket systems that take ore to the surface to be processed. As with all mining operations, deep sea mining raises questions about potential environmental impact on surrounding areas. Environmental people have argued that seabed mining should not be permitted in most of the world 's oceans because of the potential for damage to deepsea ecosystems and
