Biogeochemical Cycles: What They Are and How They Work [Types and Examples]

A biogeochemical cycle (from the Greek bio, ‘life’, geo, ‘earth’ and chemistry12) is the movement of nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, potassium, carbon, and other elements between living things and the environment (atmosphere, biomass, and aquatic systems) through a series of processes and decomposition of soil production. In the biosphere, organic matter is limited, so … Read more

Main Characteristics of Biodiversity

Biodiversity or biological diversity is the name given to the wide variety of living beings that exist on planet Earth and that establish natural relationships with each other. It is the product of billions of years of evolution. When an environment is biodiverse or has high biodiversity, it means that it is a place inhabited … Read more

Types of Biodiversity: [Genetic, Species and Ecosystem]

Biodiversity is a term coined in 1986 that comes from the combination of the words “biological diversity”. It understood as the variety of life that exists in our ecosystems. Forests, seas, oceans, mountains, and any scenario where species develop are full of life. Here develop their lives all kinds of animals, insects, amphibians, plants, and … Read more

Aerothermal Energy

What is aerothermal energy? The procedure for aerothermal energy consists of Some consider this energy to be renewable, but the Basque Institute of Competitiveness maintains that this can only be affirmed when aerothermal reaches the minimum performance of 4.5 in COP (Coefficient of Performance). This means that for every kilowatt-hour (kW/h) of electricity, consumed with … Read more

Why Don’t We Feel the Movement of the Earth?

As everyone knows, our planet makes a complete revolution on its axis once a day, so knowing the Earth’s radius, it is easy to calculate its linear speed at the equator (1666 km / h). We travel at this very high speed along with everything around us and yet, we do not notice it.  When … Read more

Biomass

Biomass is a type of renewable energy in which organic matter is used as an energy source. This organic matter is originated in a biological process, either spontaneous or provoked. Biomass energy ultimately comes from the sun. Through photosynthesis, the plant kingdom absorbs and stores part of the solar energy that reaches the earth. Plant … Read more

Green Spaces

By green spaces, we mean a space that gathers trees, shrubs, flowers, and plants. Vegetation is the main characteristic. We can classify it as a green area a forest, a park, gardens, and, of course, the jungle. In the cities also constitutes a green area the flowers and plants that are in the medians of … Read more

How can the Energy of Natural Phenomena be Harnessed?

What types of energy can be generated by natural phenomena, and how can they be harnessed? One of nature’s most precious gifts lies in its limitless energy potential from immensely rich natural sources. Because they can be regenerated by equally natural processes, and thanks to the unlimited amount of energy they contain and emit. We, … Read more

Cogeneration

What is cogeneration? Global warming resulting from climate change introduced by man through the overexploitation of fossil fuels such as oil, the main raw material for energy production worldwide, has forced the search for alternatives that slow down the generation of greenhouse gases, to give the planet a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, the modern … Read more
