The primary aim of the courses was to make me a naval architect, but at the same time, these courses gave me a window to think about the alternative application of the knowledge besides building ships and offshore platforms. This discipline, I believe, offers students a perfect blend of engineering, architecture, and oceanography. I had basic all the courses like physics, chemistry, advanced mathematics, mechanics of structure, motion and control, and fluid mechanics. My willingness to help our coastal people and the study track made me more inclined to
Introduction: Marine Science The oceans are part of the thin, outer shell of the Earth and marine science is the study of this envelope, from the deep sea to shallow coastal oceans: their biology, chemistry, geology and physics together make marine science a richly inter-disciplinary science. The oceans are dynamic and vast, they contain most of the Earth 's water and carbon and surface heat, and much of its biomass, but they do not operate alone. In collaboration with the atmosphere, continents and ice (cryosphere), they form a working machine, driven mostly by energy derived from the sun and the Earth’s interior and other substances found in space (Garrison, 2013). Marine Scientists focus their work on both practical or applied problems and
As our world becomes increasingly technologically advanced, biotechnology plays an increasing important aspect of our lives. Many contemporary uses of biotechnology raise ethical considerations, regarding their safety, reliability and moral concerns. The Human Genome Project gave us the ability to identify and map the complete genetic blueprint of a human. It was the world’s largest collaborative biological project and determined the sequence of chemical base pairs, including multiple variations of each gene in the human body.
o Water Density: This is caused by the amount of salt in a body of water and its temperature. Water with higher salinity, or colder water, is more dense and likely to sink. Sinking water pushes the water below it up. The combination of sinking and rising in the same area causes a current.
The method of production and separation of propionic acid is a complex one and over the course of years, various methods have been explored, invented and commercialized. The earliest known work performed in the separation of propionic acid dates back to the early 1900’s. To make sure that the work that will be done for this particular project is in a direction that is not explored before, extensive research papers have been read-both form the past and the most recent as well, websites have been searched for possible methods of separation and purification of propionic acid, patents have also been studied. This extensive and long literature survey has given many interesting insights in the process and the conclusions that have been arrived to
In recent years composites have been the subject of many scientific and research projects, as well as many commercial programs. Growing global ecological and social concern, the high rate of depletion of petroleum resources and new environmental policy has forced the search for new composites and green materials, compatible with the environment. Moreover calotropisgigantea fiber is a waste product. In recent years, scientists and engineers have been working mutually to use the inherent potency and routine of the fibers and nanoparticles in combination with natural to produce a new class of bio-based composites. The special challenges for this type of bio-composites are their eco attributes that make them environmentally friendly, completely
Most of these advancements were made in the twenty years leading up to the novels present time. Advances in technology and science have completely transformed everyday life. Throughout the novel, there are many examples of changes made to
HISTORY OF ENVIRONMENTAL LAW IN INDIA Environment indubitably plays a vital role in our daily lives. Environment is being threatened with increasing technological advancement & industrialization. Hence, over the last few decades there has been increased awareness as to environmental protection. As a result of this, environmental jurisprudence in India has also seen a sea change.
Ali Elkanuni 040809006 November 24, 2015 Here Comes the Sun Analysis Introduction: Hydraulic Fracturing, also known as fracking, is the process in which companies use in order to extract natural gasses. High-pressure fluid is injected into rocks deep underground so that it fractures shale rocks to release natural gas inside. This natural gas is used for energy, gas and oil. There has been a controversy about fracking since it was introduced about 60 years ago. Although it was a great technological advancement, it has raised both health and environmental concerns in the areas fracking is occurring.
The lower parts have been submerged and desiccated, shown by the layers of travertine, strand formations, and beaches (9). Scientists can infer that the basin was once filled with seawater due to the discovery of fossilized marine shells, corals, and oysters in the rock (9). The fossils are now above tide-level showing a change in elevation of the region (9). Dr. Stephen Bowers, who studies the region, writes, "The water of the old Tertiary Sea, which once prevailed here, must have been extremely favorable to the propagation and growth of mollusks, especially oysters”. There is also evidence of volcanic activity around the area in the form of craters stemming from Pinacate, an extinct volcano (9).
• There were a variety of microscopic marine plants like the Margarita. • The most important animal group of the Cambrian were the trilobites. • The period marked a fast change in the variety and composition of Earth 's biosphere. •
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.
