Presentation Transcript


Three types of plate boundaries

Three types of plate

boundaries

divergent

convergent

transverse


Three types of plate boundaries

Curves the global wind

patterns

Coriolus Effect


Three types of plate boundaries

Soil layer where

organic material

is found

OHorizon


Three types of plate boundaries

They eat dead material

and their waste

enriches the soil

Detrivores


Three types of plate boundaries

Layer of air where jets

fly

Stratosphere


Three types of plate boundaries

Layer of air where weather

occurs

Troposphere


Three types of plate boundaries

Top 3 gases in

atmosphere

nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor


Three types of plate boundaries

What happens to air at the

equator?

Warm moist air rises up and

out cools and descendes 30o

north and south of equator


Three types of plate boundaries

Movement of heat in

liquids or gases

convection


Three types of plate boundaries

Lines running pole to pole

Longitude


Three types of plate boundaries

How do volcanoes affect

weather?

Ash and microparticles causes

global cooling due to blocking

sunlight from reaching Earth


Three types of plate boundaries

Convection circuit 0-30o

north and south

Hadley cell


Three types of plate boundaries

Convection circuit 30-60o north or south of equator

Ferrell cell


Three types of plate boundaries

Describe La Nada in the Pacific

Warm air rises up on Asian side

heads towards Americas, descends

and returns towards Asia causing

upwelling of nutrients in Pacific

side of Americas


Three types of plate boundaries

Describe El Nino

There is a reversal and warm

air and ocean water moves

towards the Americas from

Asia


Three types of plate boundaries

Effects of El Nino

Harsh winter in north and

drought in southern

areas


Three types of plate boundaries

Water absorbed by

soil in the water cycle

infiltration


Three types of plate boundaries

General water cycle pattern

Evaporation off water,

condensation, and precipitation


Three types of plate boundaries

The nitrogen cycle letters

and what each stands for

NNAAD

nitrogen fixation

nitrification

ammonification

assimilation

denitrification


Three types of plate boundaries

What is assimilation?

Roots take up nitrates


Three types of plate boundaries

What is denitrification?

Nitrogen returning to

atmosphere


Three types of plate boundaries

Major two sources of sulfur

in the atmosphere?

Coal burning power plants

and volcanoes


Three types of plate boundaries

Acid rain gas

Sulfur dioxide


Three types of plate boundaries

Odd thing about the

phosphorus cycle

Little or no

atmospheric

component


Three types of plate boundaries

The biotic and abiotic factors

of an area interacting together

ecosystem


Three types of plate boundaries

Two names for organisms

that make their own

food energy

producers

autotrophs


Three types of plate boundaries

A species whose health

shows the health of its

environment

indicator species


Three types of plate boundaries

All the species in one

area interacting with

each other?

community


Three types of plate boundaries

A group of one type of

species

population


Three types of plate boundaries

Non-living components

of the environment or

system

abiotic factors


Three types of plate boundaries

Niche

How an organism lives


Three types of plate boundaries

Increase in organic material

per unit of time

Productivity


Three types of plate boundaries

The number of species in

an ecosystem is

species richness


Three types of plate boundaries

The maximum amount or

population that a habitat

can hold is

carrying capacity


Three types of plate boundaries

A species that eats an

animal that eats a plant is a

secondary consumer


Three types of plate boundaries

This law explains why

energy is lost at each trophic

level

2nd law of thermodynamics


Three types of plate boundaries

Form of energy lost

at each trophic level

Heat


Three types of plate boundaries

Determines biomes

Climate


Three types of plate boundaries

First species to return to

a destroyed habitat…

Pioneer

species


Three types of plate boundaries

Biome whose primary

vegetation is evergreens

Arboreal forest

or

Taiga


Three types of plate boundaries

The plants that move in following

a degradation of an ecosystem

secondary

succession


Three types of plate boundaries

The final step of succession…

climax

community


Three types of plate boundaries

A species critical to the success

of an ecosystem

keystone

species


Three types of plate boundaries

A species that creates or

improves and ecosystem

foundation

species


Three types of plate boundaries

Trees that lose their

leaves in winter

Deciduous trees


Three types of plate boundaries

Weight of organic matter

produced by plants

biomass


Three types of plate boundaries

Biome with nutrient rich

soil

grasslands or wetlands


Three types of plate boundaries

Biome soil low in

nutrients

Rainforest


Three types of plate boundaries

Photosynthesis

sunlight and carbon dioxide

makes sugar and oxygen


Three types of plate boundaries

Importance of predators

- limit populations

- keep genetic strength of

prey by killing old or ill


Three types of plate boundaries

Relationship that helps

one and doesn’t effect

another

commensalism


Three types of plate boundaries

Relationship that helps

both

mutualism


Three types of plate boundaries

Example of commensalism


Three types of plate boundaries

Example of mutualism


Three types of plate boundaries

How to estimate population

by tag and recapture?

total # in second collection x # in 1st collection

# marked in 2nd collection


Three types of plate boundaries

How to calculate population

growth?

births – deaths + imm – emmx 100

current pop


Three types of plate boundaries

Population doubling time

70 = yrs to double

% growth rate


Three types of plate boundaries

What are GMOs?

Genetically modified

organisms


Three types of plate boundaries

What is monoculture (3)?

When a farmer grows one crop

or when a country’s economy

depends on one crop or when

only one variety of a crop is

grown


Three types of plate boundaries

What is the major cause

of the Gulf of Mexico’s

hypoxia?

nitrates

from

fertilizers


Three types of plate boundaries

What is the weakness of

economic growth?

Limited

resources


Three types of plate boundaries

What is sustainable growth?

Depends on services and

uses the 3Rs
