Cold War Nuclear Fallout Is Still Affecting the Pacific, What Does That Mean for Us?

Dr. Ken Buesseler and his team returned to remote Pacific nuclear testing sites to measure radioactive elements left over from the Cold War. Seventy years later, these sites remain uninhabitable—a fact that will only become more salient as sea levels rise. How Seeker Will Collect The Most Extensive Data Set of the Pacific Ocean | The Swim - https://youtu.be/XQqsjfFN2Z4 Read More Read Dr. Ken Buesseler's Full Paper: "Lingering radioactivity at the Bikini and Enewetak Atolls" https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969717328139 NASA Is Testing a Compact Nuclear Reactor to Power Astronauts on Mars https://www.seeker.com/exploration/nasa-is-testing-a-compact-nuclear-reactor-to-power-astronauts-on-mars “The reactor has the delightful acronym of KRUSTY (Kilopower Reactor Using Stirling TechnologY), and can continuously provide up to 10 kilowatts of power for at least 10 years. Its compact dimensions could enable the delivery of multiple units on a single lander that could collectively provide the 40-50 kilowatts of power that NASA expects a human mission will require.” Even a Limited Nuclear Strike Could Have Disastrous Environmental Costs https://www.seeker.com/earth/even-a-limited-nuclear-strike-could-have-disastrous-environmental-costs “The violent destruction of all of this carbonaceous material would launch 5 million metric tons of black carbon into the atmosphere, blocking out enough solar radiation to drastically lower global temperatures and significantly decrease rainfall for years. The study estimates that global temperatures would reach 1,000-year lows in the short-term and not return to normal for 25 years. In monsoon regions, annual rainfall could drop by 20 to 80 percent, according to the study. Growing seasons would shrink and agricultural production would dry up, leading to a global “nuclear drought” and resulting famines that could claim a billion lives.” In ‘Shocking’ Discovery, Lightning Triggers Nuclear Reactions https://www.seeker.com/earth/in-shocking-discovery-lightning-triggers-nuclear-reactions “For years, scientists have wondered if these collisions were powerful enough to knock neutrons out of stable nuclei, creating radioactive isotopes of gases like nitrogen and oxygen. Thanks to a powerful winter thunderstorm and some well-placed radiation detectors, a team of Japanese researchers captured the first definitive proof that lightning can trigger a type of nuclear reaction.” Seawater Could Provide an ‘Endless’ Source of Uranium for Nuclear Plants https://www.seeker.com/seawater-could-provide-an-endless-source-of-uranium-for-nuclear-plants-2276514732.html “When uranium dissolves in seawater, it combines with oxygen to form uranyl ions, which can be collected by dipping plastic fibers coated with a compound called amidoxime, which makes the uranyl stick to the plastic. The Stanford researchers created a hybrid amidoxime-carbon fiber, and then sent pulses of electricity down the fiber, which improved the amount of the uranyl collected, the speed in which their collected, and the ability to reuse the fibers.” ____________________ Science In The Extremes ventures to the ends of the earth to bring you pioneering research and innovations that are advancing our civilization and broadening our understanding of the universe.

Australia
 
03:18
Australia is an Oceanian country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. For at least 40,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups. After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories. The population of 23.6 million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated in the eastern states and on the coast. Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the world's 12th-largest economy. In 2012 Australia had the world's fifth-highest per capita income. Australia's military expenditure is the world's 13th-largest. With the second-highest human development index globally, Australia ranks highly in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia is a member of the United Nations, G20, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum.

They can be found over a range of continents. Biomes are distinct biological communities that have formed in response to a shared physical climate. "Biome" is a broader term than "habitat"; any biome can comprise a variety of habitats. While a biome can cover large areas, a microbiome is a mix of organisms that coexist in a defined space on a much smaller scale. For example, the human microbiome is the collection of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that are present on or in a human body.A 'biota' is the total collection of organisms of a geographic region or a time period, from local geographic scales and instantaneous temporal scales all the way up to whole-planet and whole-timescale spatiotemporal scales. The biotas of the Earth make up the biosphere.

Much of the shelves were exposed during glacial periods and interglacial periods. The shelf surrounding an island is known as an insular shelf. The continental margin, between the continental shelf and the abyssal plain, comprises a steep continental slope followed by the flatter continental rise. Sediment from the continent above cascades down the slope and accumulates as a pile of sediment at the base of the slope, called the continental rise. Extending as far as 500 km (310 mi) from the slope, it consists of thick sediments deposited by turbidity currents from the shelf and slope. The continental rise's gradient is intermediate between the slope and the shelf. Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the name continental shelf was given a legal definition as the stretch of the seabed adjacent to the shores of a particular country to which it belongs.

Various forms of life exist, such as plants, animals, fungi, protists, archaea, and bacteria. The criteria can at times be ambiguous and may or may not define viruses, viroids, or potential synthetic life as "living". Biology is the science concerned with the study of life. There is currently no consensus regarding the definition of life. One popular definition is that organisms are open systems that maintain homeostasis, are composed of cells, have a life cycle, undergo metabolism, can grow, adapt to their environment, respond to stimuli, reproduce and evolve. However, several other definitions have been proposed, and there are some borderline cases of life, such as viruses or viroids. Abiogenesis attempts to describe the natural process of life arising from non-living matter, such as simple organic compounds. The prevailing scientific hypothesis is that the transition from non-living to living entities was not a single event, but a gradual process of increasing complexity. Life on Earth first appeared as early as 4.28 billion years ago, soon after ocean formation 4.41 billion years ago, and not long after the formation of the Earth 4.54 billion years ago. The earliest known life forms are microfossils of bacteria. Earth's current life may have descended from an RNA world, although RNA-based life may not have been the first. The mechanism by which life began on Earth is unknown, though many hypotheses have been formulated and are often based on the Miller–Urey experiment. Since its primordial beginnings, life on Earth has changed its environment on a geologic time scale, but it has also adapted to survive in most ecosystems and conditions. Some microorganisms, called extremophiles, thrive in physically or geochemically extreme environments that are detrimental to most other life on Earth. The cell is considered the structural and functional unit of life. There are two kinds of cells, prokaryotic and eukaryotic, both of which consist of cytoplasm enclosed within a membrane and contain many biomolecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. Cells reproduce through a process of cell division, in which the parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells. In the past, there have been many attempts to define what is meant by "life" through obsolete concepts such as odic force, hylomorphism, spontaneous generation and vitalism, that have now been disproved by biological discoveries. Aristotle was the first person to classify organisms. Later, Carl Linnaeus ...

Gulf of Mexico
 
25:47
The Gulf of Mexico (Spanish: Golfo de México) is an ocean basin largely surrounded by the North American continent. It is bounded on the northeast, north, and northwest by the Gulf Coast of the United States, on the southwest and south by Mexico, and on the southeast by Cuba. The U.S. states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida border the Gulf on the north. In Texas and Louisiana, the Gulf Coast it is often referred to as the "Third Coast" in comparison with the U.S. Atlantic and Pacific coasts. The Gulf of Mexico formed approximately 300 million years ago as a result of plate tectonics. The Gulf's basin is roughly oval and is approximately 810 nautical miles (1,500 km) wide and floored by sedimentary rocks and recent sediments. It is connected to part of the Atlantic Ocean through the Florida Straits between the U.S. and Cuba, and with the Caribbean Sea (with which it forms the American Mediterranean Sea) via the Yucatan Channel between Mexico and Cuba. With the narrow connection to the Atlantic, the Gulf experiences very small tidal ranges. The size of the Gulf basin is approximately 615,000 mi² (1.6 million km²). Almost half of the basin is shallow continental shelf waters. The basin contains a volume of roughly 660 quadrillion gallons (2.5 × 106 km3). This video is targeted to blind users.

Born In Louisiana Part 2 - 10 Famous-Notable People
 
02:21
Some fun facts about those who were born in Louisiana AKA The Bayou State, Child of the Mississippi, Creole State, Pelican State, Sportsman's Paradise, Sugar State and The Boot, that most people are not aware; artist, politicians, host, comedians and etc. Home to the Superdome, Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street, Popeye's, Louisiana State University LSU Tigers, Saints, Tulane Green Wave, Southeastern Louisiana University SLU Lions, La Tech, Grambling, Southern University, Pelicans and many more Louisiana is a state located in the Southern United States. Louisiana is the 31st most extensive and the 25th most populous of the 50 United States. Its capital is Baton Rouge and largest city is New Orleans. Louisiana is the only state in the U.S. with political subdivisions termed parishes, which are the local government's equivalent to counties. The largest parish by population is East Baton Rouge Parish, and the largest by total area is Plaquemines. Louisiana is bordered by Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east, Texas to the west, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. Much of the state's lands were formed from sediment washed down the Mississippi River, leaving enormous deltas and vast areas of coastal marsh and swamp. These contain a rich southern biota; typical examples include birds such as ibis and egrets. There are also many species of tree frogs, and fish such as sturgeon and paddlefish. In more elevated areas, fire is a natural process in the landscape, and has produced extensive areas of longleaf pine forest and wet savannas. These support an exceptionally large number of plant species, including many species of orchids and carnivorous plants. Louisiana has more Native American tribes than any other southern state, including four that are federally recognized, ten that are state recognized, and four that have not yet received recognition.

Impact of Future Climate and Non-Natives on HI's Aquatic Ecosystems
 
53:34
A warming climate will have fundamental impacts on freshwater, a critical driver of tropical island ecosystems. Declining baseflows are of particular concern as they threaten to interrupt the link between the freshwater habitats of adult migratory fish and the marine environments where their larvae grow and disperse, especially where habitat availability is already limited by surface water diversions. Introduced species, which are prevalent in Hawaii, place additional pressure on native biota, threatening community structure, diversity, and ecosystem function. This NCASC supported research will focus on two main topics during the presentation: (1) changes in streamflow regime and the likely impact on habitat quality for native aquatic species in Hawaii; and (2) a better understanding of the impacts of introduced species on their in-stream habitat and associated environmental factors at the landscape scale.

'Housing the Future: A Disruptive Futures Dialogue' - June 28, 2018
 
01:43:39
The only cities worth building, indeed the only futures worth dreaming of, are those that include all of us, no matter who we are or how we make homes for ourselves. –OluTimehin Adegbeye Like DNA to our bodies, housing is the building block of thriving communities. It is the critical link connecting our culture, health, education, economic capacity, history, and belonging. Like many cities around the world, Santa Fe is facing a major housing crisis. The lack of affordable housing, coupled with concerns around displacement, has many residents wondering about the sustainability of our city. In partnership with New Mexico Inter-Faith Housing, the Santa Fe Community Foundation, and the Santa Fe Art Institute, Creative Santa Fe hosted a public dialogue event to examine current issues in housing, highlight affordable housing initiatives led by local organizations, and explore bold, disruptive ideas for a future where everyone has access to housing. We invited renowned social impact designer Liz Ogbu to discuss how housing is the key to building sustainable communities. What does science fiction have to do with housing? “Are we brave enough to imagine beyond the boundaries of ‘the real’ and then do the hard work of sculpting reality from our dreams?” This question is posed by the creators of Octavia’s Brood, a published anthology and working group of visionary leaders who help communities create pathways to social justice through the powerful tool of science fiction. Writer and musician Gabriel Teodros of Octavia’s Brood helped us “to uncover the truths buried in the fantastical – and to inject a healthy dose of the fantastical into our search for truth” by leading a science fiction writing workshop which invited participants to create their own stories, visions, and ideas for a future–or many futures–in which everyone in Santa Fe has a home. Featuring Local Guest Speakers: Zane Fischer, Alicia Inez Guzmán, Joseph Kunkel, Councilor Renee Villarreal, and Beata Tsosie-Peña. This video was created and produced by Anaid Garcia and Katrina Mendoza of Ditch the Box Studios.

As the Seas Rise, Can We Restore Our Coastal Habitats?
 
56:46
Steven Handel, Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolution, Rutgers University Visiting Professor in Landscape Architecture, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University As sea levels rise, the potential loss of coastal habitats is a threat across the globe. This is of particular concern in the eastern United States, where coastlines are largely developed and offer few open spaces for habitats to move inland if present natural lands are lost. Considering the current conditions of coastlines, as well as future development scenarios, Steven Handel will discuss strategies to help maintain our coastal character and the ecological services of coastal habitats that are critical to the social, cultural, and environmental well-being of our region. Presented by Harvard Museum of Natural History in collaboration with the Association to Preserve Cape Cod Recorded - February 27, 2018

He serves on the South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council Coral Advisory Panel and as the co-lead for the Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative’s Technical Advisory Panel. He also teaches in Harbor Branch’s Semester By The Sea Program and Florida Atlantic University's Biology Graduate Program, and conducts molecular workshops for high school students. Dr. Voss earned his Ph.D. in biological sciences at Florida International University in Miami, and is a proud alumnus of Elon University in North Carolina where he completed his bachelor’s degree. About the Lecture Through CIOERT, Harbor Branch researchers have partnered with NOAA to explore and characterize the diverse, beautiful, and extensive coral reefs in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS) and adjacent banks 100-150 miles off the coast of Texas. Since 2009, Dr. Voss and colleagues have surveyed this reef system extensively using a combination of remotely operated vehicles, technical diving, traditional SCUBA, and fish acoustics. Much of the Flower Garden reefs lies in mesophotic depths, or the "twilight zone", resulting in unique communities of corals, invertebrates, algae, and fish. These studies have demonstrated that mesophotic coral habitats in the northwest Gulf of Mexico are more extensive than previously known and provide critical information to support the FGBNMS sanctuary expansion plan.

Climate Change Impacts on Aquatic Ecosystems in PNW
 
01:07:23
This webinar was held as a part of the Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, a partnership between the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and the FWS National Conservation Training Center. Webinar Description: Trout and salmon populations, which play a critical role in many ecosystems and economies, have dramatically declined in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) due to habitat degradation and fragmentation and introductions of invasive species, and are expected to be further impacted by future climate change. Understanding how climate change will influence the abundance, distribution, genetic diversity, and value of these native fish species is crucial for their management and recovery. This project used modeling techniques to study how climate change might affect freshwater habitats of key trout and salmon species throughout the PNW. The goal of the study was to develop and provide novel tools that will help managers predict and respond to potential climate change induced impacts on habitats, populations, and economies.

Texas Parks & Wildlife PBS Show #2305 November 16-22, 2014 The Real Bears of East Texas An animal that was almost wiped out due to unregulated hunting, and loss of habitat, the black bear is slowly making its way back to the bottomland forests along the states eastern border. Now a team of bear trackers from Stephen F. Austin State University are on the lookout. It’s a unique bear study that sends the team into some of the most remote habitat found in the state. Wild Things: Turtles and Roads Many folks find turtles crossing busy roads and wonder “What’s the right thing to do?” State Herpetologist Andy Gluesenkamp helps answer that question. The Spring Trackers We know a lot about the major springs in Texas, but very little about the estimated 3500 scattered around the state. Biologists Chad Norris and Janet Nelson trek to remote spring sites gathering a variety of information that will provide a greater understanding of one of our most important sources of freshwater. Palo Duro Canyon State Park Way, way, way up in the Texas Panhandle lies Palo Duro, the second largest canyon in the country (guess what’s first?). With its truly breathtaking scenery, Palo Duro is also one of our most popular parks. On this weekend, hundreds of cyclists come to ride 24 hours in the canyon, all in memoriam to friends or family members lost to cancer.

DOCUMENTARY UFOS ARE REAL: Real UFO Footage USAF Fighter Jets vs UFO | OVNI (UFO) sobre Toledo
 
20:55
Click here to read the UFOs article : Follow the Facebook Page: When I first posted this video of the Air Force engaging a UFO, I felt convinced that this was real UFO footage, and many who have witnessed this UFO Video are convinced we are being visited by beings not of this world - extraterrestrials. Though many who see the video are not convinced it is not an edited together hoax. And the reality is that a significant number of reported UFO Sightings, and certainly of reports filed with MUFON are fabrications or just jokes to the people who fill out the online form to Report a UFO Sighting. And certainly of the few messages I get a month regarding Sightings by my readers, it may be a bit of a wasted effort, but that doesn't mean that someone wouldn't go to the trouble either. Still: here's what I would like from the viewing public, as you look over this video supposedly from the United States Military on a scramble to intercept a UFO: I am unfamiliar with these planes or the location they are in, so if anyone can help me that way, that would be a good start in investigating this video. If there's any way I could possibly track down this Pilot, that would be my ultimate goal. Or if anyone viewing this is or knows a military pilot who would be willing to talk with me on conditions of anonymity, I would appreciate you sharing this video or my site with them It seem that my best bet is to go right to the source, if perhaps the source would be willing to talk to me - even if only to say "I can't talk about that specifically."
Liaoning
 
30:22
Liaoning is a province of the People's Republic of China, located in the northeast of the country. The modern province was established in 1907 as Fengtian or Fengtien province and the name was changed to Liaoning in 1929. It was also known as Mukden province at the time, for the Manchu pronunciation of Shengjing, the former name of the provincial capital Shenyang. Under the Japanese puppet Manchukuo regime, the province reverted to its 1907 name but the name Liaoning was restored in 1945 and again in 1954. Liaoning is the southernmost part of Manchuria, the Chinese Northeast. It is also known in Chinese as "the Golden Triangle" from its shape and strategic location, with the Yellow Sea (Korea Bay and Bohai Sea) in the south, North Korea's North Pyongan and Chagang provinces in the southeast, Jilin to the northeast, Hebei to the southwest, and Inner Mongolia to the northwest. The Yalu River marks its border with North Korea, emptying into the Korea Bay between Dandong in Liaoning and Sinuiju in Korea. This video is targeted to blind users.

UK: LONDON: NEW MINERAL DISCOVERED IN MOROCCO
 
02:45
English/Nat A new mineral discovered in Morocco years ago but only just recognised by scientists in London could be the closest thing yet discovered to Superman's kryptonite! Scientists from London's Natural History Museum are scratching their heads over the mysterious blue rock. They say the unnamed rock - dust from which may prove to be lethal - is a world first and has the world's greatest geologists re-writing the science books. It just look like a piece of blue rock, but it's far from ordinary. The mysterious pyramid-shaped rock could be the nearest thing in nature to Kryptonite, the material which robs Superman of his powers. It emerged on Tuesday that the beautiful, but potentially deadly, rock is made from a mineral unknown to science. It was bought from a roadside stall in Morocco by geologist Anna Grayson about 15 years ago. SOUNDBITE: (English) "All I can say is that it's come from some mountainous region. You can see the shiny section here which shows it has slid through rocks and against other rocks. It is highly folded, highly compressed. The minerals inside it are shattered and I think it started off on some ocean floor and was thrust up in some mountain belt - pushed, compressed, heated to form the mineral it is now." SUPER CAPTION: Anna Grayson, finder of mineral Scientists at London's Natural History Museum are still investigating the rock's chemistry - tiny specs of the mineral were ground down and prepared for tests to identify it. They first thought it must contain copper due to its blue colour - but in fact there is no copper in it at all. So far, the unnamed mineral's strange properties have the world's greatest geologists re- writing the science books. Containing aluminum, calcium, silicone and iron, a special X-ray machine has had to be used to discover its crystalline structure. Under an electron microscope, the tiny asbestos-like fibres show up - each less than one ten thousandth of a millimetre long. Because its structure is so similar to asbestos, it may be lethal. Dust from the rock could be dangerous, possibly even deadly, if inhaled. Scientists are hoping that the mineral's unique characteristics might be adapted in the field of computers. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well certainly the optical properties, the intense blue colour, is extremely exciting because it means that electrons are popping about inside the structure. And the more we know about that the more we will be able to harness the effect of this electron- switching phenomena that could be used in optical computers of the future." SUPER CAPTION: Dr Gordon Cressey, Mineral Department, Natural History Museum But it's under the ordinary microscope that the mineral's unique optical properties are revealed. It becomes a kaleidoscope, creating a dazzling display of changing colours. The mineral appears blue or purple or colourless depending on the direction of the polarised light passes through it. The world of geology is buzzing with the news of Tuesday's announcement. The last time a large lump of a new mineral was found was more than 20 years ago on the banks of the river Charo in Siberia. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I thought this was worth shouting about. I mean we really had something new, that's extra and that we don't understand fully at the moment and it's going to be fun finding out exactly how these crystals are made up." SUPERCAPTION: Dr Gordon Cressey, Mineral Department, Natural History Museum Scientists hope to mount an expedition to find the source of the mineral in case it does prove to have unique and useful properties. But in the meantime the mysterious blue rock will be a central attraction at London's Natural History Museum.

Several alternate usages of the term have been proposed. The term as most often used applies to introduced species (also called "non-indigenous" or "non-native") that adversely affect the habitats and bioregions they invade economically, environmentally, or ecologically. Such invasive species may be either plants or animals and may disrupt by dominating a region, wilderness areas, particular habitats, or wildland–urban interface land from loss of natural controls (such as predators or herbivores). This includes non-native invasive plant species labeled as exotic pest plants and invasive exotics growing in native plant communities. It has been used in this sense by government organizations as well as conservation groups such as the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the California Native Plant Society. The European Union defines "Invasive Alien Species" as those that are, firstly, outside their natural distribution area, and secondly, threaten biological diversity.The term is also used by land managers, botanists, researchers, horticulturalists, conservationists, and the public for noxious weeds. The kudzu vine (Pueraria lobata), Andean pampas grass (Cortaderia jubata), and yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis) are examples. An alternate usage broadens the term to include indigenous or "native" species along with non-native species, that have colonized natural areas (p. 136). Deer are an example, considered to be overpopulating their native zones and adjacent suburban gardens, by some in the Northeastern and Pacific Coast regions of the United States. Sometimes the term is used to describe a non-native or introduced species that has become widespread (p. 136). However, not every introduced species has adverse effects on the environment. A nonadverse example is the common goldfish (Carassius auratus), which is found throughout the United States, but rarely achieves high densities (p. 136). Notable examples of invasive species include European rabbits, grey squirrels, domestic cats, carp and ferrets. It has been suggested that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) as a class should be regarded and managed as invasive species.Dispersal and subsequent proliferation of species is not solely an anthropogenic phenomenon. There are many mechanisms by which species from all Kingdoms have been able to travel across continents in short periods of time such as via floating rafts, or on wind currents.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park
 
18:03
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a United States National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain. The border between Tennessee and North Carolina runs northeast to southwest through the centerline of the park. It is the most visited national park in the United States. On its route from Maine to Georgia, the Appalachian Trail also passes through the center of the park. The park was chartered by the United States Congress in 1934 and officially dedicated by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940. It encompasses 522,419 acres (816.28 sq mi; 2,114.15 km2), making it one of the largest protected areas in the eastern United States. The main park entrances are located along U.S. Highway 441 (Newfound Gap Road) at the towns of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and Cherokee, North Carolina. It was the first national park whose land and other costs were paid for in part with federal funds; previous parks were funded wholly with state money or private funds.

Bat

Bat
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera (/kaɪˈrɒptərə/; from the Greek χείρ - cheir, "hand" and πτερόν - pteron, "wing") whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight. By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances. Bats do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits, which are very long and covered with a thin membrane or patagium. Bats are the second largest order of mammals (after the rodents), representing about 20% of all classified mammal species worldwide, with about 1,240 bat species divided into two suborders: the less specialized and largely fruit-eating megabats, or flying foxes, and the highly specialized and echolocating microbats. About 70% of bat species are insectivores. Most of the rest are frugivores, or fruit eaters. A few species, such as the fish-eating bat, feed from animals other than insects, with the vampire bats being hematophagous, or feeding on blood. This video is targeted to blind users.

Water scarcity
 
37:56
Water scarcity is the lack of sufficient available water resources to meet the demands of water usage within a region. It already affects every continent and around 2.8 billion people around the world at least one month out of every year. More than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Water scarcity involves water stress, water shortage or deficits, and water crisis. While the concept of water stress is relatively new, it is the difficulty of obtaining sources of fresh water for use during a period of time and may result in further depletion and deterioration of available water resources. Water shortages may be caused by climate change, such as altered weather patterns including droughts or floods, increased pollution, and increased human demand and overuse of water. A water crisis is a situation where the available potable, unpolluted water within a region is less than that region's demand. Water scarcity is being driven by two converging phenomena: growing freshwater use and depletion of usable freshwater resources. This video is targeted to blind users.

The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric soil. Wetlands play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage, processing of carbon and other nutrients, stabilization of shorelines, and support of plants and animals. Wetlands are also considered the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems, serving as home to a wide range of plant and animal life. Whether any individual wetland performs these functions, and the degree to which it performs them, depends on characteristics of that wetland and the lands and waters near it. Methods for rapidly assessing these functions, wetland ecological health, and general wetland condition have been developed in many regions and have contributed to wetland conservation partly by raising public awareness of the functions and the ecosystem services some wetlands provide.Wetlands occur naturally on every continent. The main wetland types are swamp, marsh, bog, and fen; sub-types include mangrove forest, carr, pocosin, floodplains, mire, vernal pool, sink, and many others. Many peatlands are wetlands. The water in wetlands is either freshwater, brackish, or saltwater. Wetlands can be tidal (inundated by tides) or non-tidal. The largest wetlands include the Amazon River basin, the West Siberian Plain, the Pantanal in South America, and the Sundarbans in the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta.The UN Millennium Ecosystem Assessment determined that environmental degradation is more prominent within wetland systems than any other ecosystem on Earth.Constructed wetlands are used to treat municipal and industrial wastewater as well as stormwater runoff. They may also play a role in water-sensitive urban design.

They can be found over a range of continents. Biomes are distinct biological communities that have formed in response to a shared physical climate. Biome is a broader term than habitat; any biome can comprise a variety of habitats. While a biome can cover large areas, a microbiome is a mix of organisms that coexist in a defined space on a much smaller scale. For example, the human microbiome is the collection of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that are present on or in a human body.A 'biota' is the total collection of organisms of a geographic region or a time period, from local geographic scales and instantaneous temporal scales all the way up to whole-planet and whole-timescale spatiotemporal scales. The biotas of the Earth make up the biosphere.

Respond and Restore: Fish and Wildlife Service’s Role in Oil Spills
 
38:12
When an oil spill occurs, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service responds to prevent animals from being exposed to oil and then helps to capture and clean animals that have been oiled. FWS Chief, Branch of Environmental Response and Restoration Mark Huston discusses an overview of FWS responsibilities during a spill, how animals are captured and cleaned, and some of their major restoration projects.
