New Transit System for Sunshine Coast
As a consequence of the rapidly increasing population of the Sunshine Coast, and therefore rising transport demand, various suggestions have been
made in regards to the establishment of a new transit system. Currently, the most favoured option in regards to alternative transport on the Sunshine
Coast is that of a light rail line which would link all major destinations and attractions within the region as well as connect with bus and train services in
hinterland communities (Deutscher, 2013). In addition, present studies conducted by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council (2013) detail that the light
rail would extend from Caloundra to Maroochydore, via the University of the Sunshine Coast. However, the development of the light rail line along this
route would involve crossing Currimundi Creek, a critical environmental and tourism feature of the Sunshine Coast. The distinctive and biodiverse
environments of this area are crucial for the sustainment of certain conditions that various species rely on for survival (Williams, 2010). Moreover, the
Currimundi Catchment is also the habitat of multiple species with 'Conservation Status' as detailed in the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and the
Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Department of the Environment, 2013). Based on the field work studies completed
by local students, as well as the data of secondary sources such as the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management (GCCM), it can be determined that the

Protecting Floodplains by Aaron Dante Mamiit
Protecting Floodplains by Aaron Dante Mamiit
Flooding is a constant issue faced by Metro Manila. Although there are times when flooding is merely an inconvenient and annoying event, there are
also times when it develops into something much more frightening and dangerous.
But why is Metro Manila so badly plagued by floods anyway?
One of the reasons why Metro Manila constantly battles with the flood problem is because a large part of it is situated on a floodplain.
What are floodplains?
Floodplains are landscapes that are formed when running water, often in streams and rivers, transports eroded rock and other similar materials from
their banks to a lower part of the Earth's surface. At these lower parts, the flow of water slows down, and the rock and materials that the water is
carrying are dropped.
This leads to the creation of deposital landforms. One of these landforms is the floodplain.
Floodplains are nearly flat, hence the "plains" part of their name. The "flood" part, on the other hand, should be pretty obvious – these floodplains are
subject to periodic flooding.
What happens on floodplains?
Flooding occurs when water overflows from a stream or river. When the water levels become too high, the water flows out of the stream channel and
over the stream banks, submerging the adjacent floodplain.
As water overflows, the material it carries – sediments such as sand, gravel, clay, and silt – are deposited on the floodplain.
The larger particles are deposited first, closer

Analyzing Winslow Homer's The Gulf Stream
Introduction
Winslow Homer, The Gulf Stream, 1899, Oil Painting Canvas, 28 1/8inches x 49 1/8inches The Gulf Stream painting by Winslow Homer depicts
what life is like for some fishermen in the ocean. What we see fishermen bring from their long expeditions are ocean creatures of different sizes and
shapes. Winslow in this painting is telling the story of a fisherman who went fishing but, in his expedition, he was the main target for the sharks, the
fish for the sharks. In this painting, the fisherman who is lying on the boat is shown to have lost hope and believe the worst is yet to come hence, he
looked to have accept his faith of death. But, at the background of the picture, Winslow gave some sense of hope and safety for the man. ... Show more

Estuarine Pollution in Eutrophicatin
Rivers and estuaries have been useful to human beings more than just as a water source. They have been the centre of interest of frontier settlement,
which leads to more human activities and wastes, which leads to dumping rubbish into the most convenient place – the waterways. What becomes a
problem is that more and more toxic chemicals are being dumped to a point that the waterways could no longer filter it. One of the problems that is
becoming a global crisis is eutrophication. Therefore, this paper will be talking about the estuarine pollution, specifically on eutrophication, starting with
the source and type of the pollutants, how it affects the estuaries and the management of the pollution.
Eutrophication happens as the water ecosystem becomes more productive due to increasing primary productivity in the estuary. This happens because of
the excessive nutrient enrichment which will cause frequent cyanobacteria blooms (Wang and Wang, 2009). The excess nutrients could come from
different sources, including stormwater drainage, waste discharges from industrial areas, and runoffs from agricultural farm. According to United
States Environmental Protection Agency, the stormwater can pick up debris and chemicals straight from the streets into the rivers and estuaries.
Consequently, it also drags the excess nutrients when it is discharged from the storm sewer system. Not only that, the stormwater can also drag
nutrients and pathogens form leaking and poorly maintained septic

Diana Nyad Research Paper
Diana Nyad is well known for swimming from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage; her experience can teach others to see the world and themselves
in a whole new perspective. Although she accomplished her goal, it took Nyad a total of five attempts in order to successfully swim from Cuba to
Florida. Her fifth and final attempt to make this journey took her approximately fifty–three hours. The distance was over 110 miles, which broke the
world record for the distance swam without the protection of a shark cage. Even though Nyad went through hard times during her expedition, she
never gave up on herself. Her experience plays a large role in not only how people see the world, but the way they see themselves too.
The hard times that Nyad encountered during the swim only made her stronger. She experienced severe cold temperatures, which could have lead to
hypothermia very quickly. As she was swimming down the Florida Straits, she began to vomit because of the large... Show more content on

She states, "Never, ever give up, you're never too old to chase your dreams. It looks like a solitary sport but it is a team effort" (Viti). In the same
interview, Nyad talks about what she is proud of and what she considers success. During the interview she states, "I'm proud that I swam the distance,
but I'm even more proud that I 'found a way' to intelligently assemble a team that formulated solutions to the extensive variables to make our way
across. That's success" (Viti). Nyad is beyond proud of her accomplishment of swimming from Cuba to Florida, however she mentions that in some
way, everything is a team effort. Her team is what helped her accomplish her own personal goal, and she is thankful for that. This can make people
realize that personal goals can be accomplished as a team effort, and asking for help is okay. Nyad can influence the perspectives of many people
around the world and their

In addition, present studies conducted by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council (2013) detail that the light rail would extend from Caloundra to Maroochydore, via the University of the Sunshine Coast. However, the development of the light rail line along this route would involve crossing Currimundi Creek, a critical environmental and tourism feature of the Sunshine Coast. The distinctive and biodiverse environments of this area are crucial for the sustainment of certain conditions that various species rely on for survival (Williams, 2010). Moreover, the Currimundi Catchment is also the habitat of multiple species with 'Conservation Status' as detailed in the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Department of the Environment, 2013). Based on the field work studies completed by local students, as well as the data of secondary sources such as the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management (GCCM), it can be determined that the ...

  • 2. Protecting Floodplains by Aaron Dante Mamiit Protecting Floodplains by Aaron Dante Mamiit Flooding is a constant issue faced by Metro Manila. Although there are times when flooding is merely an inconvenient and annoying event, there are also times when it develops into something much more frightening and dangerous. But why is Metro Manila so badly plagued by floods anyway? One of the reasons why Metro Manila constantly battles with the flood problem is because a large part of it is situated on a floodplain. What are floodplains? Floodplains are landscapes that are formed when running water, often in streams and rivers, transports eroded rock and other similar materials from their banks to a lower part of the Earth's surface. At these lower parts, the flow of water slows down, and the rock and materials that the water is carrying are dropped. This leads to the creation of deposital landforms. One of these landforms is the floodplain. Floodplains are nearly flat, hence the "plains" part of their name. The "flood" part, on the other hand, should be pretty obvious – these floodplains are subject to periodic flooding. What happens on floodplains? Flooding occurs when water overflows from a stream or river. When the water levels become too high, the water flows out of the stream channel and over the stream banks, submerging the adjacent floodplain. As water overflows, the material it carries – sediments such as sand, gravel, clay, and silt – are deposited on the floodplain. The larger particles are deposited first, closer ...

  • 4. Estuarine Pollution in Eutrophicatin Rivers and estuaries have been useful to human beings more than just as a water source. They have been the centre of interest of frontier settlement, which leads to more human activities and wastes, which leads to dumping rubbish into the most convenient place – the waterways. What becomes a problem is that more and more toxic chemicals are being dumped to a point that the waterways could no longer filter it. One of the problems that is becoming a global crisis is eutrophication. Therefore, this paper will be talking about the estuarine pollution, specifically on eutrophication, starting with the source and type of the pollutants, how it affects the estuaries and the management of the pollution. Eutrophication happens as the water ecosystem becomes more productive due to increasing primary productivity in the estuary. This happens because of the excessive nutrient enrichment which will cause frequent cyanobacteria blooms (Wang and Wang, 2009). The excess nutrients could come from different sources, including stormwater drainage, waste discharges from industrial areas, and runoffs from agricultural farm. According to United States Environmental Protection Agency, the stormwater can pick up debris and chemicals straight from the streets into the rivers and estuaries. Consequently, it also drags the excess nutrients when it is discharged from the storm sewer system. Not only that, the stormwater can also drag nutrients and pathogens form leaking and poorly maintained septic ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Diana Nyad Research Paper Diana Nyad is well known for swimming from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage; her experience can teach others to see the world and themselves in a whole new perspective. Although she accomplished her goal, it took Nyad a total of five attempts in order to successfully swim from Cuba to Florida. Her fifth and final attempt to make this journey took her approximately fifty–three hours. The distance was over 110 miles, which broke the world record for the distance swam without the protection of a shark cage. Even though Nyad went through hard times during her expedition, she never gave up on herself.

  • 7. An Analysis Of ' So Much Water So Close At Home ' In Carver's short story, "So Much Water So Close to Home," three men go to Naches River for a fishing trip and encounter a dead young woman in the river. Aware that the corpse is in the river, they continue on with their fishing trip, not reporting it until they travel back home. Carver illustrates the story through the eyes of Claire, the wife of the fisher. Carver depicts the differences in male and female roles of amarriage and their psychological similarities, associated with why there was a need to travel to further waters, when there is "So Much Water So Close to Home." Ordinarily, man is the provider and woman is the nurturer in a marriage. This is contrasted by the differences of Stuart and Claire's roles as husband and wife. Man's role in a home is to be a gatherer of not only physical labors but of answers. Claire is constantly seeking answers as to why her husband waited so long to report the corpse, but he contains no answers for her as he says "you're going to get me riled," (76) making her findings of the truth qualities as the protector of the household. Their minds as husband and wife functioned separately and in no way correlated to be a whole as Claire became more consumed by the idea of the dead child. This consumption is relevant in the way Claire demands her husband to tell her where their son by asking "where is he? Where is Dean?" (90) and how she has no trust over him concerning their son because of the idea of the dead girl. This leads to her ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 10. The Effects Of Oceans On The Climate System Oceans are huge components of the climate system. The big cause for most climate change on Earth is the atmosphere and the oceans are an essential factor. Even though they do not respond to the climate changes they do have a role in the climate system. Earth is a big planet with at least 71 percent covered with water and 96.5 percent is located in the Earth's oceans. There is an extreme interaction between the atmosphere, ocean and ice. In the past, ocean circulation has strongly impacted the climate sway of ice ages and oscillations of the circulations could have been the subsequent cause of some climate variations. Oceans absorb most of the sun's radiation compared to the atmosphere and land surface. Movement of the heat through local and global ocean currents affect the regulation of weather and temperature conditions. Understanding the essentials of the ocean 's circulation has advanced during the past decades and scientist are able to model and find new data on past climates. Oceans move an extensive amount of heat across the planet in the same amount as the atmosphere. The difference is the oceans are confined by land masses so its heat is channeled into specific regions. Ocean currents are located at the surface and 300 meters deep below the water. Currents are powered by wind, tides, the Earth 's circulations, the sun (solar energy) and water density. These characteristics affect the shape, size, directions and speed of ocean currents.

Two, if observed closely, one can see a flock of birds flying toward the sunlight draw lightly to demonstrate the illusion of afar. Three, one can see native symbols on the quilt that the son is leaning on. The painting is painted as if the viewers are on land watching the father and son rowing the boat towards possibly the end of the Mississippi river. The water is clear and it reflects everything in the boat. Both the father and son are calm. The son is lounging and the father is smoking a pipe giving off a calm mood. The artist uses curves to help demonstrate the son's boredom by making look as if he's slouching. Bingham made the father and son's body to connect and make a semicircle. Bingham uses spring colors, happy colors, to portray a relaxed mood. He uses soft colors, for instance the soft red color of the father shirt and the matte color black of the cat's fur the keep the tranquil feeling.

Thus, organizations were created to protect, maintain and monitor this important salmon rearing stream (Stoney Creek Environment Committee, n.d.). A few methods that the organizations utilize to analyse Stoney Creek, is to survey its habitat conditions and test the water quality and quantity (Taccogna et al., 1995).

These characteristics involve streambed material, embeddedness, pool habtat percentage, off–channel habitat, bank stability, bank vegetation percentage, overhead canopy and riparian zone. Certain points to note is that there is an abundant variety and amount of vegetation (such as conifers and shrubs) surrounding the creek which provides shade, protection and their roots provide bank stability (Taccogna et al., 1995). Another point to consider is that undisturbed streams will have little to no embeddedness (Taccogna et al., 1995). Unfortunately, our results from the 25 streambed samples suggests 41% embeddedness of gravel and rock, meaning there was some stream disturbance. Coniferous trees are also present which may increase the streams acidity (Taccogna et al., 1995). Again, plentiful vegetation also increases bank stability and decrease risks of erosion which could disturb many sensitive aquatic creatures (Taccogna et al., 1995). For that reason, destruction on its environmental surroundings should be avoided at all costs. Overall, with a score of 90, the habitat quality of Stoney Creek is in the acceptable ...

By connecting stream flow rates model to pollutant loads, the relationship between pollutant transport and water quality can be determined. For this research, models of the fate and transport of the chloride and sulfate in Leon River was constructed. 4.3Conceptual Model The conceptual model for this research is a network model which models the rate of flow of pollutant through a connected network of points in surface water. The water quality monitoring stations represent such points and serve as containers. From analysis of the water quality monitoring measurements of pollutants at each chosen station, it is observed that the concentration levels of pollutants tend to be high where it has not rained for a long time compared to where it rained the previous day or few days ago. This then can be interpreted to mean that the concentration of pollutant in surface water is proportional to the amount of water in the surface water body.

For the most part, they are only attainable from the Halda River, which is a large yet singular source of natural carp breeding based in Bangladesh, and all of South Asia has suffered its losses as of late to the tune of some 26 differentfish species in general–all wiped out in seven years' time by water pollution. India has been suffering similar water pollution issues itself and has concluded that linking certain rivers may be the best way to deal with the problem; however, new research indicates that this will have adverse effects on Indian ecosystems. In Bangladesh, the construction of dikes and dams on either side of the Halda has contributed to the proliferation of water pollution. A sizeable contingent of that pollution stems from the infirmed biotic community in key areas. The river itself, mind you, is exceedingly long (98 km) with a rather aggressive tributary known as the Dhurung River that merges with Purba Dhalai some 48 km downstream. Halda stretches from the Badnatali Hill Ranges in the Chittagong Hill Tracts down through Fatikchhari upazila, Bhujppur Thana, Hathazari upazila, followed by Raozan and then Chandgaon Thana.

Introduction: Eutrophication is a natural process that lakes and certain bodies of water undergo. Eutrophication happens by having a significant level of biodegradable waste in a body of water. The nutrients in the water promote growth of primary producers which has a positive impact on consumers. These nutrients usually cause bodies of water to be cloudy, turbid, have a high number of primary producers, and promote the excessive growth of algae (Koechli, 2015). This then causes the body of water to reduce its dissolved oxygen level, and dead biomass to accumulate. Although it is a natural process, humans can affect these bodies of water by inserting a surplus of nutrients. This process is called cultural eutrophication, which is considered a form of water pollution (Koechli, 2015). This pollution is often caused by fertilizer run–off and much more. It causes the overgrowth of aquatic plants. These plants quickly become crowded and have to compete for space and sunlight. Because of this, aquatic life is threatened due to the low dissolved oxygen, and blocked sunlight. Cultural eutrophication is ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 24. Ocean Currents Affect Coastal Climates Wind powered surface currents and waves, along with moon and sun powered tides, greatly impact Earth's coastlines. As warm or cold water ocean currents affect coastal climates, waves release energy, shifting sand and sediments, eroding and replenishing coastline shores; all while tides raise and lower sea level. Florida's east coast, encompassed by barrier islands, is affected by subtropical ocean waters provided by the Gulf Stream, facilitating warm and humid climates, as well as hurricanes. As these warm ocean waters interact with Florida's barrier islands, through wave action and tides, its coastline continuously transforms. The ocean current that flows north alongside Florida's east coast, the Gulf Stream, is one of the most important factors in determining Florida's climate. Beginning near the equator, the warm waters of the North Equatorial Current eventually feed into the Gulf Stream, which begins at the southern tip of Florida. This Equatorial transfer of heat through ocean currents is what facilitates Florida's warm and humid climate. To illustrate the influence ocean currents have on coastal climates, we can compare the climate of Puerto San Carlos, Baja California Sur with the climate of Miami, Florida, because they reside on North America's west and east coasts respectively, around the 25'N Latitude line. Puerto San Carlos has a desert climate, averaging under 3 inches of precipitation per year, with 70 degree average temperatures; while Miami has a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The reader can understand that a voice is evoked by a memory of having a picnic in August near a waterfall with their romantic partner every time he or she places their hands into a pool of water or 'basin of water '. One says "he or she" because the poem does not specifically tell the reader if it is the woman or man speaking. Hardy discusses the purity, serenity and permanence of the waterfall.

We then proceeded to make our way to the mountain and as we were driving upI decided to chime in and make a suggestion, saying "We should climb up from the base of the waterfall" everybody else quickly agreed since that seemed to be a nice little leisure activity for a group of teenagers.

For instance, the effects the Gulf Stream has on the Florida peninsula. The water that on the eastern coast of Florida is referred to as the Florida current and even in winter months keeps a temperature of roughly 77 degrees Farenheit. The reason the water is able to do that is due to the winds passing the warm water and taking air that flows along the current and spreading it along the coastline. This has the ability to keep the temperatures in Florida much milder across the state than in most places in the Southeast during the winter months. On the flip side of things in the upper most part of the gulf in Europe the warm air from the currents help raise the temperature on the Western coast of Great Britain and Ireland a few degrees.

The smooth bore shoots out more water per second but at a straight stream. The combination nozzle shoots out more water droplets at a wider stream. Both processes are functional when putting out a fire. However, the combination nozzle can act as a barrier or wall against flames and smoke because it shoots at such a wide pattern. At the same time because the combination nozzle system shoots out water droplets, the droplets produce steam. The steam that is now present is more harmful to firefighters, which can be prevented by keeping the smooth bore nozzle in place.
