Human-Environment Interaction
Human Environmental Interaction: how
people affect
their
environment
, and how their
environment affects them
.
Q: What is Human-Environment Interaction?
Human-Environment Interaction
The Atmosphere
The Lithosphere
The Hydrosphere
The Biosphere
Ecosystems
The Biosphere is the collection of plants and animals of all types that live on Earth..
ATMOSPHERE:
Layer of oxygen
and other gases that
surrounds the Earth
.
Smog: thick haze of smoke and chemicals.
Acid Rain:
combination
of
chemicals
and
precipitation
.
Greenhouse Effect:
gases in the atmosphere traps the sun's warmth
, like the glass in a greenhouse.
Lithosphere: another name for the
Earth's Crust
.
Crop Rotation: changing what is planted from year to year.
Irrigation: humans often divert(
change the direction
) water from a river or lake toward a field being used for agriculture.
Examples: The
Colorado River
, Rivers feeding into the
Aral Sea
.
Agricultural terracing:
humans cut or carve steps out
of the mountainside
to create level areas for farming
.
Examples: Rice terracing in
Chinese
mountains and
Southeast Asia
, terracing in
Andes Mountains
of
South America
.
Deforestation
Agricultural Terracing
Crop Rotation
Air Pollution
Example: The
Black Forest in Germany
, forests of
Scandinavia
and
China
, the
forest areas of Eastern North America
.(Between Boston and Washington D.C.)
Deforestation:
cutting down forests without replanting.
Example: cutting down of rainforest in
Nepal, Brazil(Amazon Rainforest)
and
Malaysia
.
Irrigation
Hydrosphere: refers to the
Earth's surface water
and
groundwater
.
Reservoirs
Reservoirs: a reservoir is a
place where humans collect water for future use
.
Polders
Polders: in low lying land areas, humans may "re-claim" the land from the sea, which is actually
pumping the water off the land for the purpose of agriculture
.
Biosphere:
collection
of
plants and animal
s of all types
that live on Earth
.
Desertification
Desertification: process by which dry areas turn into desert.
-When animals overgraze semi-arid (steppe) areas resulting in the loss of grasslands in the areas. As the grasslands disappear the land reverts to arid (desert) conditions.
Example: the
sahel
(steppe-semi-arid) region of
Africa
is shrinking due to desertification; the spread of the
Gobi desert in Asia.

5th. If you yell "BINGO" you have to tell me the meaning of the term and I have to check to make sure we have mentioned that term.
