      These ocean resources are particularly very helpful for human to use and consume. Other than those ones, there are also more resources that are often hidden underneath the seafloor. Nevertheless, each one of the ocean resource has been in use for humans for many years. Here are 20 Sustainable Use of Ocean Resources. Oceans, Lakes, and Rivers About 70% of the Earth is covered by water, making it an important part of earth science and geography studies. Texts, questions, writing prompts, science projects, worksheets, and activities let kids explore oceans, rivers, and lakes as natural resources, habitats, ecosystems, and geographic locations.

      Our appetite for energy and mineral resources seems insatiable. As land based resources become increasingly scarce, those in the oceans are attracting greater interest. The fuels and ores in the deep sea are particularly tempting. But wind and wav. resources. What You Will Learn • The ocean is an important source for food, salt, fresh water, oil, tidal energy, and minerals. • Oil is the most valuable resource obtained from the ocean. Why It Matters Many of the things you eat and the materials you use are made from resources from the ocean.

    Producing natural gas and mineral oil > Throughout the Earth’s history, natural gas and mineral oil have formed from the remains of marine algae and land plants, with large deposits accumulating In certain rock strata. Today, using modern drilling techniques and giant platforms, these resources are being extracted from ever greater depths. Teach your students about oceanography with our most popular oceanography worksheets and teaching resources. You'll find handouts on ocean tides, hurricanes, marine biologists, and much more! There are plenty of resources appropriate for elementary, intermediate, and secondary school students.

I wrote recently for the State Department’s Our Planet blog about the importance of the ocean as a natural resource. Here’s an excerpt: Despite the fact that our planet is 70 percent water, it’s easy to take for granted the many ways that the ocean keeps us ocean provides much of the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and the climate that surrounds us.

Attentive environmental impact monitoring and priority given to renewable resources will guarantee the “rules of engagement” for further exploitation of natural resources. The concurrent use of oceans, seas and inland waters for traditional maritime activities (e.g.

shipping, fisheries, oil & gas and tourism coastal activities) and new. Resources. Oil and natural gas are the most valuable non-living resources taken from the ocean. Extracting these resources requires drilling into the seafloor.

Oil platforms have dozens of oil wells that are drilled in places where the ocean is sometimes 2, m deep. A description of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill affecting the Gulf of Mexico.

Oceans face the threats of marine and nutrient pollution, resource depletion and climate change, all of which are caused primarily by human actions. These threats place further pressure on environmental systems, like biodiversity and natural infrastructure, while creating global socio-economic problems, including health, safety and financial risks.

This graphic shows several ocean floor features on a scale fromfeet below sea level. The following features are shown at example depths to scale, though each feature has a considerable range at which it may occur: continental shelf ( feet), continental slope (, feet), abyssal plain (>10, feet), abyssal hill (3, feet up from the abyssal plain), seamount (6, feet.

From Cambodia to California, industrial-scale sand mining is causing wildlife to die, local trade to wither and bridges to collapse. And booming urbanisation means. The environmentalist Rachel Carson wrote, "In every curving beach, in every grain of sand, there is a story of the Earth.".

Sand comes from many locations, sources, and environments. Sand forms when rocks break down from weathering and eroding over thousands and even millions of years.

Oceans cover 70 percent of Earth's surface, host a vast variety of geological processes responsible for the formation and concentration of mineral resources, and are the ultimate repository of many materials eroded or dissolved from the land surface.

Sand has by now become the most widely consumed natural resource on the planet after fresh water. [1] The annual world consumption of sand is estimated to be 15 billion tons, with a respective trade volume of 70 billion dollars. Over the last two centuries sand has become a vital commodity for our modern economies.

Many of the natural resources found on land are also found in the ocean. It is often less expensive to remove resources from the land than from the ocean, so many of the ocean’s resources are not currently mined.

However, as resources on land are used up and new technology makes ocean exploration and mining easier, ocean mining may increase. Natural gas and oil are also considered ocean resources. As marine organisms die, their remains sink to the bottom of the ocean and become buried by sediment.

As the sediment accumulates, the remains decompose and the heat and pressure from the layers of sediment gradually transforms the remains into oil and natural gas.

The ocean can be divided into three light zones, which vary in temperature, light, pressure, and habitat. In the deepest and darkest zone, the midnight zone, lies the ocean bottom and hydrothermal vents teaming with unique species and natural resources.Natural resources and associated problems 20 Non-renewable resources 22 Renewable resources 22 a.
