Aquascaping
2013-04-02 10:31:02

Aquascaping is the art of arranging aquatic plants along with rocks, cavework, stones, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium. Aquascape designs incorporate numerous distinctive styles. Usually, an aquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it’s possible to produce an aquascape with solely plants, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants. Even though the main goal of aquascaping is to construct an artful underwater landscape, the technical...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

Earth's Atmosphere

Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
