The Causes of Waterlogging from Irrigation

- ... As long as the water table remains deep, the salts, imported with the irrigation water, are washed down into the deeper soils with the percolation losses of irrigation water. If the water table becomes more shallow however, excess irrigation can no longer take place, otherwise the land would become flooded with stagnating water. At this point, salt leaching no longer occurs, and the salts brought in with the irrigation water accumulate in the waterlogged areas.

The Effects of Secondary Soil Salinization

- Introduction: Irrigation has been used as tool by humans for over 8000 years. Irrigation started in the Nile valley where humans attempted to modify the way that the river seasonally flooded their fields in order to make cropland more productive (van Schilfgaarde, 1994). From 1940 to 1989 the amount of land being irrigated around the world has increased at a rate of 2.7% per year. In 1940 there were 95 M ha in irrigation while by 1989 there were over 280 M ha (van Schilfgaarde, 1994).

Since acids dissociate in water, the dilution of the acid’s concentration (Macid) will determine the number of free hydrogen ions in the solution, being that they are equal to each other when the -log is used. By changing the concentration of the HCl, the acid strength decreases, as shown in the change in pH, due to the presence of H+ ions as they break away from the original molecules of the acid....   [tags: Acid, PH, Acid dissociation constant, Hydronium]

Langauge Play With Drugs

- The Language play I will thoroughly analyze is the modern day street slang for drugs. It’s interesting how we “address” a drug based on various side effects it causes rather than its pharmaceutical name. For example, the drug Cocaine is called “Base Crazies”. “Base Crazies” refers to the way it easily gets you hooked leaving you wanting more and making you search on your hands and knees for cocaine. (ONDCP, 2005) Using the Internet, books, and pamphlets based on drugs will help me in my research of finding different abstract terms for the common street drug....   [tags: Illicit Drugs, Academic Essays]

The First Cholera Outbreak

- Cholera conquered nineteenth century Europe like a new air to a throne. The first outbreaks of the disease appeared to have begun in India which spread smoothly into Britain by trade through Britain’s Indian based empire. Cholera is identified by rapid liquid diarrhea, vomiting, and accelerated dehydration due to depletion of bodily liquids and salts causing blood to coagulate and skin to turn blue. This leads to a fall in blood pressure, otherwise known as the “sinking stage”, which is accompanied by muscle cramping, sunken cheeks and eyes....   [tags: india, cholera epidemics, governments]

The Water Treatment Process

- Water treatment process overview The first step in creating a cyanobacteria-directed biodesalination apparatus is selecting a species that possesses proper metabolic and morphologic characteristics. The organism must then be genetically modified to optimize ion regulation, and light regulation of the desalination process. Cyanobacteria use photosynthesis for removal of sodium from the intracellular matrix of the bacterium. Through regulation and genetically modifying the bacteria to express halorhodopsin (Hr) this photosynthetic system can be harnessed to import chloride ions....   [tags: cyanobacteria use photosynthesis ]

Ecological Integrity At Risk for the Cadron Creek Watershed in Arkansas
