Human Habitat and the Significance of Lakes, Rivers, and Coastal Waters
9 pages in length. Even though approximately seventy percent of the earth is covered by ocean salt water, coastal waters, rivers and lakes are far more important to people due to the direct impact their proximity has to various communities. The reason for this separation between water sources is because of the myriad ways in which people utilize the water’s vast and varied properties from these sources, including habitat development, food sources and drinking water. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
Developing World's Problems with Water Contamination
12 pages in length. The truism attached to shipwrecked sailors afloat in miles and miles of ocean – water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink – is easily equated with the long-standing problems plaguing underdeveloped countries where their own water supply is concerned. While the sailors must grapple with life-killing salt that prevents their ability to drink from the limitless reserve all around them, those in such global communities as Africa are faced with an entirely different challenge to obtain clean, uncontaminated drinking sources. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
