William Shotyk Bocock Chair for Agriculture and the Environment Department of Renewable Resources University of Alberta The SWAMP Lab
a swamp is a forested wetland and precious ecosystem at the interface between the atmosphere, lithosphere, and hydrosphere
The SWAMP Lab is an ultraclean research facility for studying trace metal cycling in Soils, Water, Air, Manures, and Plants
Element 2 XR sector-field ICP-MS for ultralow metal concentrations and stable Pb isotope ratios
ICAP-Q ICP-MS (L) for routine metal measurements and MLS Ultraclave (R) for high pressure and temperature acid digestion
The autosamplers for the ICP-MS instruments are housed in Class 100, metal-free, laminar flow clean air cabinets
MLS Duopur quartz (L) still for acid distillation and Trace Clean (R) for acid cleaning of plasticware
MilliQ water with dispenser in Class 100, metal-free, laminar flow, clean air cabinet
The Biosphere and Ecosystems SVN3E. Let’s start big:The Biosphere The biosphere is the sum of all ecosystems on earth.
Water potential Water potential = solute potential + pressure potential.

Spheres of the Earth. Identify the spheres of the Earth Atmosphere The atmosphere is the body of air which surrounds our planet. Most of our atmosphere.
What are Abiotic Factors? Abiotic factors consist of the non- living matter of the ecosystem. These factors often limit the growth of organisms.

Resource cycles in ecosystems. Cycles Essential nutrients for living things flow through the ecosystem. The reservoirs can be in the air, land, or.
Nutrient Uptake by Duckweed. Ecosystem services are natural support systems that humanity depends upon. Can you give some examples of natural support.
By Mrs. Piney-Perez. Abiotic are non living things in an ecosystem. Biotic are living things in an ecosystem. Ecosystem is all the living and nonliving.

Greenhouse effect. Our climate system (atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere and living things) trap and store energy and distribute it around the world.
Many of the phenomena that we observe on Earth involve interactions among components of air, water, and land.
