Here are this week’s essay options: Answer one of the following below

 (1) From the pictures, descriptions, and diagrams in Chapter 10 in the text (and other sources if necessary) describe how cleaning up this oil spill mess was different and will
need different equipment and methods between the estuarine salt-marshes, and sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the rock and gravel beaches like Alaska. Compare and contrast the clean-up of the Exxon Valdez tanker spill vs the current B.P. oil spill. Which of the types of shoreline (marsh, sandy beach, or gravel beach/rock) will sustain the longest lasting damage. Also check out the attached power-point Exxon Valdez vs B.P. Blowout impact.

OR (2) Define and describe the differences between the Holoplankton and the Meroplankton portions of the zooplankton. Be sure to discuss differences in size, life cycle and cite at least two biological species from each group.
NOTE: This one gets a bit confusing so here’s some help: Plankton are classified in 2 ways , by physical size(pico, micro, mero) and by biological group. So answer this by citing the biological groups with biological group. A hint chordate means spinal cord (thus vertebrate) fish larva mostly. Check out Chap 42 pgs 146-147 in the Lab Manual and pgs 315-322 in the textbook. Also use the Biological Organization document in the Resources Section.

OR (3) Read the section on Santa Barbara Calif. and Ediz Hook on pgs 277-279 in the textbook. From this discussion and pictures of beach erosion and beach dynamics in the text what do you think is the future of Paradise Island resort currently being built off of Dubai? It is a Palm tree-shaped island that is going to be the most expensive resort ever built when completed. It is not in the textbook so I posted a couple of pictures of it . Also research it on-line and describe what it’s problems and future prospects might be . Can enough money conquer the ocean? Support your answer. I have attached pictures of Palm Island here as well.

OR(4). In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy there is a great deal of controversy about how of even if the New Jersey shore-front communities should be rebuilt. If you were head of the N.J. State Reconstruction Commission what requirements would you place upon property owners and contractors to rebuild structures? Be very specific in terms of sight locations (what should the set-back from the ocean be), specific building-code criteria to mitigate future storm damage and other environmental or site factors such as dune stabilization methods, etc. that could be incorporated to make the reconstructed communities more resistant to future storm damage. Research pertinent information like the attached article to formulate your answer.
