Science doesn't get any better than when you can eat your experiments. Around the globe, scientists are racing to solve a series of mysteries. Anoxia occurs when oxygen levels are low and often results when dry, hot weather causes water to warm and evaporation increases. At the end of this course, students should be able to: Describe the general nature of the earth and of the roles that geologists and the scientific discipline of geology play in interpreting the development of the planet.

Because most of the plant life on earth is found in the Northern Hemisphere, there are global seasonal changes of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This event altered the surrounding environment, and provided scientists with an opportunity to study the effects of volcanic eruptions on the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere. As the velocity of the stream water increases, the size of the particles carried in the stream also increases, a direct relationship.
