October 30th Warm Up

October 30th Warm UpWhat does the word phenomenon mean? One example of a phenomenon is the Northern Lights.

2) The wind is the primary reason that upwelling (water movement from depths to the surface) occurs.Explain how the wind relates to this?

Vertical ZonationIn the intertidal zone, the separate areas that mark the different areas where the tide rises and falls to, vertically.

Vertical ZonationIn the intertidal zone, the separate areas that mark the different areas where the tide rises and falls to, vertically.

UpwellingUpwelling is the process in which water from the depths (deeper parts of the ocean) moves up to the surface because the wind is pushing water away from the surface, thereby leaving a space for water to well up to.

Upwelling in Action! {Upwelling in Action!1.

{ExceptDownwelling!If the wind pushes too much surface water along a coastline in one place, the water has no where to go, and heads down back into the depths.Whats a good example of Upwelling in Finding Nemo?

Whats a good example of Upwelling in Discovery Ed?

Which zone is it?- At the sea shore?Above a continental shelf?Has the most life?Habitat of animals that can handle lots of change?Where organisms use chemosynthesis instead of photo?Where you can find an abundance of phytoplankton?12Which zone is it?- Also known as the shoreline?Has extremely high pressure?Would be best explored in a submarine or using SONAR?Is greatly impacted by tidal movement?Could be explored without any technology?Best explored with scuba gear?13Explain it!Why is production of nutrients and gases most abundant on the surface of the water? (Regardless of zone)

It takes an estimated 7 trees to provide one person with oxygen. How is it possible that microscopic organisms produce over 50% of our oxygen?

14Explain it!Explain how producers create their own energy with the sun and without the sun.

What are hydrothermal vents and where do they come from? How are they useful?
