Human Dimension in the Arctic coastal zone The Arctic coastlines are highly variable, can be stable or extremely dynamic, and are the site of most of the human activity that occurs at high latitudes. Extraction of natural resources occurs in many locations around the Arctic Ocean creating the need for port facilities and the potential for pollution. These pressures are only likely to increase with time. diagram,climate change,oil,extraction,resources,ice,sediment,permafrost,frozen,settlement,sacred,cemetery,freshwater,saltwater,offshore,ear

Potential shifts in seasonality in the Northeast and Midwest resulting from climate change The landscapes of the Northeast and Midwest depend on abundant and relatively predictable seasonal water regimes. Human uses of water compete with environmental flows for aquatic species, especially during drought periods. Climate change is predicted to increase temperatures and precipitation variability in the Northeast United States, causing shifts in seasonality.

Storm Timing and Impacts on Chesapeake Bay Flora and Fauna The timing of tropical storms and hurricanes can have major impacts on the life histories of Chesapeake Bay flora and fauna. Changes in water salinity can cause early spawning in some species, such as the blue crab, and increased sediment can cause widespread die-off of seagrasses.   diagram,eco-rythm,storms,chesapeake,tropical,hurricanes,early,migration,timing

Chilika Lake Pollution Pressure As land use in the Chilika Lake area changes from forest to settlements and paddy agriculture sewage, and fertilizer and pesticides runoff increases into the Lake. This extra nutrient input results in algae blooms that float and sit on the bottom.  diagram,pollution,chilika,lake,runoff,pressure,agriculture,algae,blooms,sewage,pesticides,extra,nutrient,input

Chilika Lake Sedimentation During monsoon season excess sediment is deposited in Chilika Lake, mostly from Mahanadi River tributaries, nearby settlements, and agricultural lands. As the Lake becomes more shallow and its sea outlets fill in with sediment, increased flooding occurs.      diagram,sediment,flooding,excess,monsoon,chilika,lake,sedimentation,shallow

Light and Dark Conditions Impact on Submerged Aquatic Vegetation Growth Excess nutrients will result in increased chlorophyll and turbidity, limiting the amount of light that reaches benthic sediment. Light is essential for healthy submerged aquatic vegetation growth. Diagram from "New Insights" (p.30)- http://ian.umces.edu/pdfs/ian_report_438.pdf

permeable pavers Permeable pavers are brick-like materials that are manufactured in a variety of shapes. Pavers fit together like tiles and are set with small gaps between them, creating grooves for water to infiltrate the soil beneath. Permeable pavers reduce stormwater runoff volume and flow rate, and increase groundwater infiltration and recharge. best management practice,stormwater management,pollutant discharge,elimination,green,landscape
