There are many different ways to produce nitrogen rich fertilizers. They can be either commercially made, or you can make your own. It is not difficult whatsoever to obtain your own, you only need to be applicable to specific animals. Some animals have Nitrogen rich feces, and some do not, so it is important to research which animals do and do not before preparing your own. Chemically made Nitrogen rich fertilizers are produced by synthesized chemicals such as ammonium or nitrate. Nitrates may be leached from the soil rather quickly, but plants often absorb it before this can occur. Ammonium is slower to leech from the soil, but they are also slower to be absorbed into plants. For these two reasons nitrogen-rich fertilizers combine both nitrates and ammonium. If you would like to make your own, it is certainly easily obtained. You can use many different “bases” but some may be harder to break down than others. Grass clippings are a good base to start with, but due to the amount of time needed to break down, most gardeners will start a compost pile. From your compost pile you will start a fertilizer able to be used, but to make it more Nitrogen Rich, one of the easiest ways to enrich it, is to add Rabbit feces. It is extremely Nitrogen Enriched. Environmentalists are not in favor of most synthesized chemically made fertilizers. They may help the plants grow, but have the opposite effect on the soil. The unnaturally high levels of nutrients that some chemical…

Many ecosystems need a source of nitrogen. Nitrogen comes naturally from sources in
the environment like volcanoes, forest ﬁres, lightening etc. Nitrogen has some negative effects
on the environment as well, consisting of eutrophication of ecosystems and acidiﬁcation of
ecosystems, which may lead to a change in the plant diversity. In Europe, the nitrogen
emissions are controlled and regulated by union directives. In 1990 the European moss
have enough oxygen to support marine life. The cause of such “hypoxic” (lacking oxygen) conditions is usually eutrophication, an increase in chemical nutrients in the water, leading to excessive blooms of algae that deplete underwater oxygen levels. Nitrogen and phosphorous from agricultural runoff are the primary culprits, but sewage, vehicular and industrial emissions and even natural factors also play a role in the development of dead zones.
Dead zones occur around the world, but primarily near areas…
elements that are recycled through an ecosystem are carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur. The biogeochemical cycle is called a closed system, because these elements are not lost or created (law of conservation of matter), but is constantly being re-used and recycled. Some examples of biogeochemical cycles are the water cycle, the carbon cycle, and the nitrogen cycle.

After reading these two articles we can see each of them use a different way to improve ethylene yield. The two have the same goal, but also has a conflict theory and each of them have its advantages and disadvantages.
First, let’s talk about the article “Oxidative Pyrolysis of Ethane”, which assumes that the effects of the oxygen addition can be beneficial to industrial crack in three manners: decreased residence time or increased throughput, higher severity, or…
1. What is the process called where nitrogen moves from the atmosphere to the ground? Nitrogen fixation
Which organism(s)/process cause this to happen? Nitrogen fixing Bacteria that live in soil plants or water capture nitrogen from the air.
2. What type of bacteria performs nitrification?
Nitrifying bacteria. Also Lightning.
3. What type of bacteria performs denitrification?
4. How do plants obtain the nitrogen from the ground…

• Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) consist of nitric oxide (NO),
nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) and are
formed when nitrogen (N2) combines with oxygen (O2).
• Nitric oxide (NO) has no color, odor, or taste and is nontoxic
• Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is a reddish-brown gas with a
pungent, irritating odor.
• Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a colorless, slightly sweet-smelling,
non-toxic gas which occurs naturally in the atmosphere.
• Nitrogen oxides…
the production of healthy foods of which the government gave emphasis through organic fertilizer. Organic fertilizer performs a huge role in the efficiency and effectiveness in the production of food products in the country thus the government continuously finds ways to boost the organic fertilizer production in the country. Recently, the government agricultural sector found a new way of producing organic fertilizer at less cost and reducing the pollution potential of organic wastes. This new process…
Human Impact on the Carbon, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus Cycles
Human impact on the cycling matter in ecosystems can change a lot of things. Humans can either help or hurt things. The carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycles are the three cycles of matter in ecosystems. What are these cycles? How do humans effect each one of these individual cycles? What are some examples of humans effecting these cycles?
What is the carbon cycle? “Sequence of processes through…

Most people in today’s society define success as someone who makes a lot of money or has done something important to help form today’s society. People such as Bill Gates or Donald Trump are considered successful because they have lots of money. Even actors whose lives are wrecked and destroyed are considered successful because of the money they have. Others, like Thomas Edison, are considered successful because of accomplishments they achieved in their lives…
