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.

Earthquakes are measured with a seismometer

The magnitude of an earthquake is the quantity of energy releases, it is measured by the Ritchter scale.

The Intensity of an earthquake are the damages caused in a poblated area, it is measured by the Mercalli scale.

The point where the earthquake is formed above the Earth’s cruts is called epicentre, and the point where is the rupture of an earthquake is calle hypocentre or focus, it is directly below the epicentre.

The causes or effects of earthquakes are: volcanoes, folds and faults.
