Yellowstone Forest Fires

Event

Biosphere

Atmosphere


Event hydrosphere

Event - Hydrosphere

  • Lack of rain, moisture in soil, plants

  • Heat from fire removed moisture


Event atmosphere

Event - Atmosphere

  • Lightning strike may have started the fires

  • Pollution (CO2) may have been produced


Event geosphere

Event - Geosphere

  • Heat from the fires may have caused some rocks to break


Event biosphere

Event - Biosphere

  • Dead branches and pine needles on the ground may have provided fuel

  • Seeds of some plants require that their outer shells be burned before they could sprout


Geosphere hydrosphere

Geosphere - Hydrosphere

  • Increased erosion of soil increases sediments in water


Geosphere biosphere

Geosphere - Biosphere

  • decrease in plants may have result in increased soil erosion


Geosphere atmosphere

Geosphere - Atmosphere

  • Ash particles in the air carried by the wind and dropped on the ground miles away from the forest fires; the ash particles--which have a high pH—can change the pH of the soil


Hydrosphere biosphere

Hydrosphere - Biosphere

  • Ash particles in the water can clog the gills of fish and other aquatic organisms and choke them


Hydrosphere atmosphere

Hydrosphere - Atmosphere

  • More rain in neighboring areas because ash particles in the air may have become condensation centers that allow raindrops to form

  • Very dry, windy air can draw moisture out of the living grasses and trees through evaporation


Biosphere atmosphere

Biosphere - Atmosphere

  • Smoke in the air can coat the lungs of animals--including people--and affect their ability to breathe
