Geology/Geography/Oceanography/Atmospheric Sciences

Our eyes can see the visible light from img because cone-shaped cells in our eyes act as receivers tuned to the wavelength of img visible light, other light has either big or small wavelength. The wavelength range of the ultraviolet light is img and for microwaves is img , so the difference is img .

Two primary nutrients that cause eutrophication are nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P).

Extremophiles live in extreme places such as the bottom of the ocean floor, deep inside of the earth's crust, or inside of hot springs such as those in Yellowstone National Park. They get the energy for the survival from Chemosynthesis, or extracting energy from inorganic chemical compounds such as hydrogen sulfide.
