3 The Salton Sea is the largest lake in California. It covers approximately 343 square miles and has a maximum depth of only 43 feet. The Salton Sea is a salt water lake that was created by accident, when the salt flat known as the Salton Sink was flooded. In the year 1905, heavy rainfall caused several canals off of the Colorado River to swell, which caused water to flood into the Salton Sink, creating the Salton Sea. For a time, the Salton Sea was a popular tourist attraction with many resort towns around the massive lake. But eventually all of the agricultural runoff from surrounding areas polluted the lake.
Because is causing the water to evaporate quicker therefore, causing less water, since it is drying up the sea. Furthermore, this happening is also harming animals like the birds that migrate and if it dries up completely then can cause air
It is common knowledge that sea ice has been melting rapidly within the last decade. This rapid decrease in sea ice has many detrimental effects. This includes the rise in sea level, loss of arctic environments for animals, and the change in weather patterns. Ice is lighter in color so it reflects much of the sunlight that is put out. When open water is revealed from ice melt it is darker in color so it absorbs more sunlight, leading to that rapid melting of ice that we see today.
Finally, changes in environmental conditions are also responsible for the collapse of the East Coast Fishery. Water temperatures have dropped and ocean salinity levels have changed, causing fish to change their migratory routes, and avoid areas that are changing. People have suggested that the increase in the seal population has reduced the amount of fish because greater quantities of seals eat greater quantities of fish. In conclusion, a number of theories such as, overfishing, destructive fishing practices, and changes in natural conditions explain why the East Coast Fishery has
The Atlantic Ocean is the second largest ocean in the world. With an area of about 41.08 million square feet, the Atlantic Ocean covers 20% of the earth’s surface. The Atlantic Ocean is half the size of the Pacific Oceana and animals from Thresher sharks to King Salmon thrive there.
California residents will incur additional monthly service charges to their already large water bills, state reserves will need to be tapped into for the additional funding to run the facility. The two most looming questions though will be what energy sources will be required to fuel the plant and what overall effect of the plant has on the sea environment once the highly toxic salt brine is returned back into the
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
The cause of all this is the unregulated pumping of groundwater out of aquifers by California 's farmers in the Central Valley. As water is drawn out of these reservoirs, their structural integrity fails and they consequently collapse, causing the land above to sink. Once the aquifers collapse, their maximum capacity is reduced, so they cannot be fully refilled during wet periods. Less water will be stored and pumped, which is a major concern for drought years in the future.
California dry from all of its water people trying to sell or just moving anywhere else. The drought has been going on for many years and slowly California is running out of water. If the government of California does not do anything the people may start to attack farmer to get water or the government may go for the people. The farmers are using all the water and people are losing their water.
Now another natural cause of global warming is the rising of the seas. The biggest reason for sea level rising is that global warming is causing the air to be warmer and that 's causing glaciers and ice-caps to melt. Sea level rise would affect about 11 out of the 15 biggest cities in the world. The reason this is happening because gases are being released into the atmosphere which is causing the temperatures to rise, which causes the seas to rise. Sea level rising means more money that we have to spend for people living on the coastlines because coastal populations are growing and people are crowding into coastal areas and that area could be underwater in a few years if sea levels keep rising how they have been.
