  • Describes the structure of a soil
  • Defines the buffering capacity of a soil and why it is advantageous
  • Explains the natural process of eutrophication of a body of natural water
  • Explains how human activities accelerate the eutrophication of a body of natural water
  • Describes the greenhouse effect
  • Explains some consequences of a higher concentration of greenhouse gases
  • Describes the main factors responsible for atmospheric circulation
  • Describes the effect of prevailing winds on the dispersal of air pollutants in a given region
  • Names soil contaminants, water contaminants, and air contaminants

You can use this as a checklist while you are studying. Good luck!
