How does the reduction of Arctic Sea ice directly impact the habitat of human beings? In this paper, we discuss the myriad ways that the Arctic sea ice could potentially harm human beings by reducing certain animal habitats that are used for subsistence.
Our objective is to propose a plan for and research tidal energy as a renewable source of energy for Alaska. We choose this topic because of the need we have for a cleaner, local, renewable, and cost efficient source of energy. In our research we found Seward would cut its power bill in half for the year.
Reduced sea ice has made a significant impact in the Arctic ecosystem. Organisms that depend on ice are particularly sensitive to the ice’s reduction. The Ivory Gull, because they are heavily dependent on the ice, could be a key indicator species to infer changes in the ice habitat.
This paper explores how the declining rate of sea ice affects the harp seal. Prior to researching, harp seal population was anticipated to diminish due to habitat loss from warming ocean temperatures. It will start by discussing the sea ice projections for the next 50 years and how much it is predicted to decrease.
Keyboard buttons. Coffee grounds. Cow farts. What do these things have in common? Over the years, they’ve all been put forward as possible sources of renewable energy. While they may seem crazy, scientists’ creativity is understandable — the search for clean, renewable energy is arguably the most pressing issue in modern science.
