MARINE POLLUTION

1 scientific mission. This environmental group should be based near the same area of the ocean covered by the Week 1 research. Below are some links to help in searching for groups. If you cannot find one in the local area, look for one that addresses issues which could benefit from the week 1 research.

Develop an 8- to 10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.

  • For assistance with this type of assignment, review the UOPX Help with Microsoft PowerPoint Assignment.


The optimal assignment will focus on pollution issues in the general area of the ocean covered by assignment 1. You will not be addressing an old or new expedition. You need to find an environmental group that deals with similar pollution issues. A government agency, university, or other private research group is not the type of group we are looking for here. Look for private citizen groups with names such as "Save the Bay".

Definition of environmental group

A citizen group

Not a government, state, or university department or agency.

Not an association of scientists conducting science

Not the group who conducted the Week 1 research

Address the following in your presentation:

·         A brief description of the chosen environmental group and their statement of environmental goals

·         A brief description of the type of marine pollution addressed by the group

·         Which specific region of the ocean is the pollution most prevalent? [Narrow your focus; for example do not cover coral reefs worldwide. If possible, select an area near your Week 1 research.]]

·         How is pollution affecting the surrounding ecosystem?

·         What measures can be taken to avoid this type of pollution in the future?

·         How can Week 1 research findings aid the environmental group in reducing reoccurring occurrences of this form of pollution?

·         Include any references as needed.

Listmajor points in the slides. Include detailed explanations in the speaker notes section that correlate to each point.
Includevideos, audio, photos, diagrams, or graphs as appropriate.
