Human activity on the environment and fertilisers.

HideShow resource information
What are some potential problems that human activity can have on the environment?
Raw materials being used faster. More waste being produced. More pollutants being produced; phsphates, nitrates, sulfur dioxide.
1 of 5
What problems can sulfur dioxide cause?
It forms acid rain which can lower the pH of soil and lakes. This can destroy habitats.
2 of 5
Give an advantage and disadvantage of fertilisers.
They help crops but harm water life.
3 of 5
Why are fertilisers so essential to farmers?
Because without them, crops wouldn't grow as well and food yields would go down.
4 of 5
What is eutrophication?
When too many nitrates get into water and it can cause 'mega-growth' , 'mega-death' and 'mega-decay'
