Transcript of Earthquakes
An earthquake is an energy released from the Earth's crust and earthquake affects the environment by abruptly changing habitats. Earthquakes can cause trees to fall, cliffs to crumble and caves to collapse, which can have trickle-down effects throughout the ecosystem. Earthquakes can also have a long term or short term effect on the ecosystem.
the affected organism
earthquakes destroy plants, the surrounding area as are result shortage of oxygen access, and destroy home of animal habitats. It may also pollute the air by raising ashes in the form of a volcano.
earthquakes in Texas
Earthquakes in Texas is not as harsh as California, Oregon, and Washington. Earthquakes in Texas over the last century have been calculated and earthquakes in Texas may be caused by human activity. A few earthquakes have occurred within or along the boundaries of producing oil and gas fields; earthquakes are also sometimes apparently triggered by the disposal of fluid wastes in deep wells. However, in some parts of Texas the majority of earthquakes epicenters occur near active petroleum fields or injection wells.
A natural wildfire would burn slowly and stay close to the ground.
Bobcats and mountain lions that
instinctively climb trees to escape are burned
alive when the whole tree becomes a
wind-driven torch. Deer and other animals that
may be able to outrun a "natural" fire are overtaken
Wildfires and organisms
A wildfire effects an organism in a environment by a long term process for trees and grass to grow back building up new hardened rock and dust from the smoke. this could take up to possibly weeks or months to rebuild up and become another home for animals in the habitat.
If a wildfire happened in Texas it will have to be during the hot summer where the climate changes and grass sits in the sun for so long it starts to catch flame from the stinging heat.
