Transcript

  • 1. Eutrophication Botty Dimanov Hristo Dimitrov Yana Staneva Boris Zhikov Section 10/5
  • 2. Eutrophication: Defined
    • Eutrophication - enhancement of an aquatic environment with extremely high level of nutrients
    • Anthropogenic eutrophication – eutrophication, caused by human beings
    • [Campbell]

  • 3. Consequences
    • Excess of nutrients => accelerates growth of plankton
    • Phytoplankton + Zooplankton => Algal Bloom [“Eutrophication”]
    • O 2 decreases + waste + no sunlight => intoxication of inhabitants [Cloern]
  • 4. The Process Itself http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/dd/Scheme_eutrophication-en.svg/800px-Scheme_eutrophication-en.svg.png
  • 5. Impact on people
    • Economic
      • Tourism income decreases
      • Fishing is abolished [Cloern]
    • Health
      • Damaged sea-food may cause illnesses
      • Dangerous for humans due to toxic substances
      • May cause neurological disorders [Cloern]
  • 6. Impact on ecosystems
    • Decrease of species diversity
    • Emigration of aquatic species
    • Toxic chemicals are produced [Cloern]
    • Combustion of fuels => N oxides
    • Fertilizers => NH 3
    • Wind

  • 7. Prevention of process
    • Fertilizers’ usage
    • should be limited
    • Decrease amounts of Nitrogen in fertilizers [Cloern]
    • Increase efficiency of N/P removers
    • Imply developed technologies
    • for ferilizers’ production
    • [“Eutrophication”]

  • 8. Prevention of outcomes
    • Restoration of wetlands and buffer zones
    • Reduction of density of coastal inhabitants
    • Reduction of Nitrogen emissions in other areas as well
    • Sewage treatment

  • 9. Example 1
    • Lake Erie
    • Borders Michigan, Ohio and Canada
    • 1950s
    • Phosphorus based detergents from local companies
    • 1972- Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement [Wright]
    http://www.wkyc.com/weblog/weather/uploaded_images/Lake-Erie-715951.jpg
  • 10. Example 2
    • Baltic Sea
      • Input of nutrient
        • sewage treatment plants and industries
        • atmospheric deposition
        • agriculture [“FINAL…”]
    • Outcomes
      • Inability to see through water [“Campbell”]
      • Toxic algae [“Eutrophication”]
      • Large mats of algae washed ashore [“FINAL”]
