Transcript of Sphere Interactions
Plants (biosphere) use sunlight, carbon dioxide, oxygen (atmosphere), and water(hydrosphere) to make sugar (food). Plants use water stored underneath the ground(geosphere),too. This also affects the animals (biosphere) who eat plants as food.
During the water cycle, water (hydrosphere) on Earth's surface is evaporated up into the atmosphere.It goes back down in the form of precipitation (rain,snow,etc.) which is the hydrosphere. Sometimes, the water is absorbed or flows through the ground. Also, living organisms (biosphere) use the water.
Seismic waves from the interior of Earth (geosphere) travel to the Earth's crust as the result of the release of energy in the mantle. If the earthquake occurs underwater (hydrosphere), it could create a tsunami. Also, it could cause cracks in Earth's crust (geosphere) such as a fault. It causes damage to the biospheres' environments and it can cause living organisms to die.
A hurricane is the result of waves (hydrosphere) moving across the ocean as it sucks up warm,tropical air (atmosphere) as it escalates. When the wave falls, it releases powerful winds that reach lands. This causes damage to the biosphere by destructing habitats and killing living organisms.
Flooding is the result of precipitation (atmosphere) causing bodies of water (hydrosphere) to overflow, or the water level rising. This could affect the geosphere and biosphere in a good way or a bad way. In a dry area, a flood can cause the soil (geosphere) to be fertile and crops (biosphere) can grow. But, it could also cause crops to die from too much water and causes damage to humans' (biosphere) habitats.
A tsunami is the result of seismic waves(geosphere). This causes an earthquake underwater(hydrosphere) which results in huge waves, or just one big wave. If the wave(s) reaches land at a high speed, it makes contact with the biosphere by causing living organisms to die and habitat loss.
A forest fire actually starts in the atmosphere since it results from a hot and dry climate. The fire causes extensive damage to the biosphere such as trees,plants,animals,and sometimes even humans. It goes back into the atmosphere in the form of smoke and ash.
Global warming is the result of humans burning fossil fuels (geosphere) which produces carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This causes the Earth's climate to increase. Because of this, the polar ice caps are melting (hydrosphere) and this is affecting the animals (biosphere) who live in the polar regions.
A mudslide starts in the atmosphere because it has to do with weather. Heavy rainfall, snowmelt, or high levels of ground water (hydrosphere) flowing through bedrock (geosphere) may cause a movement in soil. The soil mixed with the water makes mud, and when the mud moves or "slides", it can cause damage to the biosphere (animals/plants) by covering environments and buildings.
