WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE 2 Abstract In our world, water is as important, as blood is to the human body. Water makes all living organism and most of the biochemical cycles work or even grow and produce healthy world to live in. Water bottles are one of the biggest factors that contribute not only to global warming but also to most of the world’s pollution. How does the water bottles contribute to global warming? How does it contribute to physical pollution? In this report, we will see how the water bottles contribute to the damaging effects on the biochemical life cycles.
WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE 3 The biosphere of the world The biosphere of the world is where everything from the living creatures to the substances we use to survive is found. The biosphere extends from the deepest root systems of trees to the darkest parts of the environment of the ocean trenches, to the lush forests and high mountain tops. In today's modern times, scientists describe and breakup the world each type is a form of a sphere. The solid surface of the earth is known as the lithosphere. The atmosphere is the layer of air that goes above the lithosphere. The Earth’s water that’s in the ground, on the surface and in the air make up the hydrosphere. Within these spheres, we have what is known as the life cycles; phosphorus, water, carbon and Nitrogen. (Biosphere | National Geographic Society, n.d.) Environmental cycles The environmental Cycles is the process in which elements (like; Water, Nitrogen, Carbon and Phosphorous) makes up different sections of the environment we live in like Air, Water, Soil and Organisms). The Water Cycle (Hydrologic Cycle) Production and decomposition of all organisms in an ecosystem depend on the presence of water. The rates at which these processes take place depends on the availability of water. Water is found in one of three forms, which are solid, liquid or gas (vapour). The main form of water used is in its liquid state. Some organisms can use it as a gas, but once frozen, it limits the availability to plants. The hydrosphere can be divided into 3 parts, the ocean (97%), glaciers and ice caps (2%) and groundwater, lakes and rivers forming the last 1%. ( Saundry, 2008, November). Several processes take place during the water cycle. I will start with evaporation; this occurs when water is taken up from the ocean or land by the solar energy of the sun in the form of water vapour. This water vapour taken up is then used to form clouds by a process known as condensation. Clouds are then moved by the wind and transported over various parts of the sea and land. These clouds then release the water via the process of precipitation and in the form of rain back into the oceans and over the landscapes. Infiltration occurs when the rain enters into the soil, which is absorbed by plants to use. Water that passes on land and other groundwater,
