Recent study by Seth John proves that metals from emission can alter marine life

Recent study by Seth John proves that metals from emission can alter marine life

In China, the emissions released from power plants that are coal-fired are fertilizing the northern part of the Pacific Ocean. A USC-led research team has reported that the nutrients released from the metal wastes are important for marine life. Furthermore, the reports stress the fact that these metals can completely alter the ecosystem of the oceans, and it is still unclear whether it can be for the worse or better. Studies have indicated that the smoke released from the power plants is known for carrying iron and other metals to the water’s surface in the North Pacific Ocean. Peak measurements have revealed that almost 60 percent of the iron found in the northern part of the ocean is from the smokestacks.

Lead author of the study and an assistant professor of Earth sciences at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences, Seth John, stated that, from immemorable we have had an idea that burning fossil fuels will dramatically alter the ocean’s ecosystem and earth’s climatic conditions and this new study from the team is showing that metals can be carried for long distances through the smoke and it can alter the ecosystem there. The researchers are certain that the metals will be beneficial to the marine life thriving there, but it can also harm other lives.
