My Mission

This Blog will be used to explain Hydrogeology, its applications towards the environment. I will try to maintain a factual standpoint and give good information on every post I make.

Recycling for the Future

 

Recycling will soon become the go to form of trash and waste management. When in a few years most things can be recycled to cut back at waste immensely. Even our efforts now to recycle do not go unnoticed and provide a small yet meaningful impact on the environment.

Quality of Water and Quality of Life

Water quality is a very important topic not for just hydrologists but everyone on the planet. The quality of the water can affect everything around us from the plants and animals who feed off of it for nourishment to making us sick beyond belief. We are the cause for some water issues but poor drinking water can happen naturally due to an abundance of a certain type of element in the water such as Nitrogen or Phosphorous.

This video gives a concise overview of the quality of the water around us and how we can make an impactful change in being helpful to the most important thing keeping not only us surviving but the environment around us as well.

Helping the Envrionment

Helping the environment is a tricky thing to do especially when we as a species need resources to flourish. However there are much more environmentally friendly ways to obtain energy and other resources than just fossil fuels. There are abundant forms of renewable energy that have not been tapped into yet. The work will be slow transitioning from where we are to where we need to go but things will pay off in the end if we start now.

A Fresh Water World

[tag Email Assignment 4]

On our planet there is only so much freshwater that we can use as a source of our drinking water. The problem with such little freshwater is that only a small portion of it is accessible above ground the rest is deep underground and it needs to be siphoned out to be used. Hydrogeology is specifically for that problem it requires hard work from everyone and copious amounts of data on the site to see if it is suitable for drilling or not. A few meters could make a huge difference when it comes to drilling wells, so much so that this field of study is very important in todays world with water problems being brought up daily.

Survival of us all

Survival

Survival is a touchy subject that can apply to a number of topics. Survival could be referring to survival of a species fighting against its environment, or it could be survival of the environment fighting against the species inhabiting it. Survival of the fittest is a common saying that can be used to defend our decision to continue fishing or hunting or using the limited resources on our planet. For me survival does not have to be so black and white, survival can be maintained with a sustainable environment without using up every last resource we have. We can work to find a way to survive on this planet with the species left on this planet. As humans we would have to consume less and give more to benefit the survival of not only us but our planet and every other animal that co exists with us.  Survival is tough without reducing the numbers of resources around us. Such as reducing the number of trees in an area to make room for housing. Wiping out an ecosystem to open up room for a shopping mall. We as a race would have to work together to preserve the life that exists all around us. Survival of the fittest could not be restricted to only one species but instead our entire planet if enough work was put in. Our whole planet could be the fittest as we push the boundaries of what we know and explore outwards into space. However in order to get to that point we as a planet have to work together to make it that far.
