Glaciers melting, sea water level rising, and greenhouse gases building up in the atmosphere.
It's pretty easy to see why. All of these things cause major environmental damage in their own way, and many can be connected back to industrial factories. You can google info on what each of these do to the earth pretty quickly. <3
The mid-oceanic ridges are the landforms that are formed at the divergent plate boundaries, and these represent the spreading zone. The magma below the earth's crust becomes so hot and pushes upward with great force, as a result of which the magma comes out at the seafloor, resulting in the addition of new materials to the oceanic crust.
This formation of new crust results in the expansion of the plates.The size of the plates becomes larger on both sides of the ridge. The rocks that are formed along the mid-oceanic ridges are the geologically the youngest rocks.
Elements that are heavier than iron can be assembled within stars through the capture of neutrons—a mechanism called the “s” pro- cess. The process starts when an iron nucleus captures neutrons, thus creating new nuclei. ... If a nucleus produced through the “s” process is stable, it may capture another neutron.
