Fertilizers

A fertilizer is an organic or inorganic material, natural or synthetic, that is added to a soil to supply plant nutrients essential to their growth.

We can clasificate them in inorganic, which are synthesized using one product that produces amonia, and in organic fertilizer, which come from organic materials like manure, worm castings, compost, seaweed or saltpeter.

But a use of fertilizers in excess can cause serious enviromental effects like: Eutrophication, Blue baby syndrome, soil acidification, persistent organic polluant, radioactive elment accumulation… The use of fertilizers contributes to Global Warming too, to the pollutants and soil degradation.

Al degradate soil by fertilizers.

Carbon Cycle

The Carbon Cycle is a complex series of processes through which all of the carbon atoms in existence rotate. The carbon cycle was initially discovered byJoseph Priestley and Antoine Lavoisier.

Carbon returns to the atmosphere and water by

  • respiration
  • burning

Carbon moves from the atmosphere to plants.

Carbon moves from plants to animals.

Carbon moves from plants and animals to the ground.

Carbon moves from living things to the atmosphere.

Carbon moves from fossil fuels to the atmosphere when fuels are burned.

Carbon moves from the atmosphere to the oceans.

Deforestation (its influence on the Carbon Cycle and relation with Global warming)

Deforestation is the process made BY HUMAN that destroys forests due to cutting trees, fires to obtain wood or farming lands.

This process devastates habitats and alterates the carbon cycle how? well I will explain with this images

this should be normal carbon cycle plants take CO2 from the  atmosphere transform into nutrients and O2(photosynthesis) then animals eat nutrients from plants and O2 from atmosphere and transform into energy and CO2(respiration). by here is easy to understand and we had to add human

human produces more CO2 to the atmosphere by cars fabrics and other ones.

now is the moment to explain the effect of deforestation in the carbon cycle.

we cut trees so there are less ones to do photosynthesis and transformCO2into O2 and nutrients habitas are destroyed and animals dont survive then the CO2 expulsed by fabrics is acumulated into atmosphere this makes greenhouse effect increase, increasing the temperature of the earth and causing global warming.

what we have to do is reforestation that is replanting trees placing the older ones to maintain the habitat and keep on doing photosynthesis.

information: based on wikipedia and previous knowledge of carbon cycle.

images me and google

 

Questions ??

why is a problem deforestation?

What can we do to prevent it??

ACID RAIN

WHAT IS ACID RAIN?

Is a term refering to the deposition of wet and dry acid components when it rains,snow fog…

WHO IT IS FORM?

Acid rain is componed by mallority sulfur dioxide, but it also have nitrogen oxides that reacs on water.

THIS PHOTO SHOWS HOW THE ACID RAIN IS FORMED

The consequences the acid rain has are:

1-Increases the acidity levels of rivers, lakes and seas. This can kill aquatic life.

2-Has been found to destroy the roots and leaves of many forests.

3-Can erode buildings and monuments

THIS PHOTO SHOWS AS THE FIRST PHOTO HOW THE ACID RAIN IS FORM BUT ALSO THE CONSEQUENCES IT HAVE

RELATION WITH NITROGEN CYCLE

In the nitrogen cycle some of the molecules reacts with sulfur dioxide and water to form acid rain.

I get this imformation from:

http://www.wikipedia.es

QUESTIONS

¿HOW IS ACID RAIN FORM?

¿HOW AFFECT ACID RAIN TO RIVERS AND AQUATIC MAMMALS?

Greenhouse effect

Natural greenhouse effect

  1. Sunlight comes through the atmosphere and reaches the Earth.
  2. Invisible infrared radiation is reflected back to space.
  3. Some gases in the atmosphere (greenhouse gases) don’t let the radiation escape and reflect it back to Earth.
  4. The Earth keeps warm.

Anthropogenic greenhouse effect

Too much greenhouse effect

CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has increased due to an increased industrial activity (fossil fuel burning) and other human activities such as cement production and tropical deforestation. Elevated CO2 levels will increase global temperature.

v=CxUK2TizQ4g&feature=related

Some questions

  1. How temperature will increase in the future?
  2. Which type of greenhouse effect keeps the Earth at it optimum temperature?
