Cold Seep

...Cold Seeps A cold seep (sometimes called a cold vent) is an area of the ocean floor where hydrogen sulfide, methane and other hydrocarbon-rich fluid seepage occurs. Cold seeps are distinct from hydrothermal vents: the former's emissions are of the same temperature as the surrounding seawater, whereas the latter's emissions are super-heated. Cold seeps constitute a biome supporting several endemic species. Cold seeps occur over fissures on the seafloor caused by tectonic activity. Oil and methane "seep" out of those fissures, are diffused by sediment, and emerge over an area several hundred meters wide. Methane (CH4) is the main component of what we commonly refer to as natural gas. In addition to being an important energy source for humans, methane also forms the basis of a cold seep ecosystem. Cold seep biota below 200 m typically exhibit much greater systematic specialization and reliance on chemoautotrophy than those from shelf depths. Deep-sea seeps sediments are highly heterogeneous. They sustain different geochemical and microbial processes that are reflected in a complex mosaic of habitats inhabited by a mixture of specialist (heterotrophic and symbiotic-associated) and background fauna. During the initial stage, when methane is relatively abundant, dense mussel beds also form near the cold seep. Mostly composed of species in the genus Bathymodiolus, these mussels do not directly consume food. Instead, they are nourished by symbiotic bacteria that also produce energy...

...head: COLD 1 The Cold War Corwin Schneider HIS 104 Professor Patrick Williams June 19, 2012 COLD 2 The Cold War Keep your Finger Off the Button! The Cold War, how did these two countries get to this point in history? While the United States and USSR should have been more grown up and learned to work out their problems, who were the major players in the Cold War and how were the two sides involved in the space race, when did the Cold War start and end, and what were the two sides arguing over. The United States was in an intense war with the USSR for five decades. It started in 1945, shortly after Communist Leader Joseph Stalin learned of the first atomic bomb the U.S. dropped on Japan August 6, 1945. “The Cold War was a strategic struggle that developed after World War II between the United States with its allies and the Soviet Union with its allies” (Bentley, J., Ziegler, H., & Streets, H. 2008 pg. 638). But, this was not an ordinary war between the two, it was a Cold War. It had more attacks of words and propaganda competing which was the better country. One reason these two superpowers never had direct military action against each other was they both possessed Nuclear Weapons. The major powers in the Cold War between...

The Cold War

...The Cold War Soon after the WWII ends, the difference in political beliefs and policies of the two superpowers soon developed into a lot of conflicts and struggles called the Cold War. Cold War, which is the war between the United States and its allies called NATO, and the Russian and its allies called the Warsaw Pact (Soviet Union) without real military attack, was a race on how strong a country is by showing what it got in terms of supporting countries that were in state of war with other nation; in terms of nuclear weapons; In terms of science and technology (Space war); and even in terms of sport competition (Olympic). In the end, the Cold War ended by the United States and the Soviet Union themselves by the failed system of the communist. I’m the one that believed that “In the cold War the United States was the good guy who fought against the evil empire of the Soviet Union to defend freedom, democracy, and human rights around the world.” Firstly, the two countries had fundamentally different beliefs. So, how do we know who really was the good guy and who really was the evil? The first thing we need to do is to consider their different beliefs, because these factors could link to different actions such as the political and economic systems they used, including the way they dealt with the situations. The Ideology of Democracy gives freedom to all individuals to express their idea to other and agree on the majority; promote human rights and equality; and uses the economic...

Cold War

...The Cold War SS310-28: Exploring the 1960s: An Interdisciplinary Approach Prof: Kathleen Marker November 20, 2012 The United States and the Soviet Union came together as allies to fight during World War II, soon after the war there were great tension between the two nations. This distrust and enmity made history and was known as the cold war. What were the causes that lead up to this historical event? American’s fear of communist attack, President Truman’s dislikes for Stalin, Russia’s fear of the American’s atomic bomb, Russia’s dislikes for capitalism, America’s refusal to share nuclear secrets, Russia’s need for a secure western border, and Russia’s aim to spread world communism. As stated in one source taken from history.com, “In 1949, the Soviets tested an atomic bomb of their own. In response, President Truman announced that the United States would build an even more destructive atomic weapon: the hydrogen bomb, or “super bomb.” Stalin followed suit.”(Cold War 2) American citizens were in fear of an attack from the Soviet Union some people started build bomb shelters in case of this nuclear attack. The Red Scare began in the 1947 where the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) began a series of hearing to prove that communist subversion was alive and well in the United States. (Cold War 2) As stated in the source, “In Hollywood, HUAC forced hundreds of people who worked in the movie industry to renounce left-wing political beliefs and testify against one...

Cold Mountain

...Cold Mountain Cold Mountain, a novel wrote by Charles Frazier, is a Civil War story, a magnificent love story between a wounded Confederate soldier – Inman who deserts and begins a lonely, dangerous journey to find the way back home, and his lover – Ada who tries to survive after her father’s death. The Cold Mountain is the destination Inman wants to arrive at, and a place where Ada transform from a city girl into a mountain woman. The story is woven around the experiences of Inman and Ada trying to rebuild their lives from the desperation and disaster of the war, all the while trying to find a way to see each other again--whilst they are so far apart. Cold Mountain opens with Inman staying in a Virginia hospital trying to recover his wound from the war. One day he speaks to a blind man he usually saw through the window of the hospital’s room. When the blind man asks Inman to “cite me one instance where you wished you were blind,” Inman doesn’t know where to begin. There are many like: Malvern Hill, Sharpsburg, Petersburg, but “Fredericksburg was a day particularly lodged in his mind.” At that time, he wishes that he himself had been blind at Fredericksburg when his regiment shot down thousands of Federal troops. He wishes that there is no war that takes many lives of soldiers, partitions families and makes him shatter by the violence he has witnessed while fighting in the Confederate army. Inman returns to the ward and opens his copy of Bartram’s Travels at random. He finds...

The Cold War

...The Cold War By Gloria Rodriguez Exploring the 1960s: An Interdisciplinary Approach December 17, 2012 Hector The first person that I interviewed was my Uncle Hector. He was in the Vietnam War as a Marine and served his country for 20 years. I remember as a child when he had told me that his best friend died in his arms he was split in half. I will never forget the sadness in his eyes. I started to cry because it broke my heart seeing my Uncle so sad. Every year on that day of the death of his best friend he is quiet and wants to be left alone. That is why I chose him and he was willing to talk to me about his thoughts about the cold war and what it means to him. What the Cold War means to my Uncle Hector, is that it reminds him of all the terrible things he witnessed in the Vietnam War. Watching innocent people dying, civilians and soldiers. And then whole villages being moved whenever the leadership figured they were in the way. For Uncle Hector the Cold War was very hot. He continues to say that the troops could not wait to get out and return home to their families whom they missed so much. The soldiers would talk to each other and they would say, “If I don’t make it send this letter to my family so they would know how much I love them.” “I Thank God that I came home and had a chance to see my children grow up, get married and that they did not have to enter into the military like I did.” George George is my roommate and best friend.

...The Cold War Michelle Goon SS310 Exploring the 1960’s Professor: Karen Lloyd Unit 2 Assignment Date: 2-12-2012 The Cold war started in 1945 and lasted until 1991 (Timeline of the Cold War, n.d.). During this time the world had many political views and agendas to deal with. There was the election between Kennedy and Nixon in 1960 and the election of Kennedy into office in 1961 (Farber, 1994) . There were mixed views on the types of government and the battle between countries to maintain governmental status. The country was also recovering for World War II at this time and was standing their ground against the Soviet Union, fighting for their values and beliefs with only words and standing tall to represent their country. The cold war was a battle of threats and words with no physical fighting. The threats were about the nuclear weapons that were being housed in the Soviet Union after President Kennedy stated that we would not stand for these types of mass destruction weapons to be housed for the potential use against us and each countries standing up for its values, beliefs, and government (What was the Cold War, 00-12). The US and the Soviet Union were allies during WWII and as the shift in power and the rise of communism in the Middle East the tension between the two began to rise. Neither of the two countries wanted to take the first step towards a nuclear war so both sides just built wall to keep others out and as a method of showing their power and territory. As...

The Cold War

...Does the Cold War have its roots in the period prior to WW11? There are many reasons to believe that the seed of conflict between the west and east was planted before the Second War World had begun. Amongst them being factors of ideological differences, agreements such Brest-Litovsk treaty and the Russian Civil War. Other less significant causes being USSR dishonouring their debts they owed to western countries like France as well as the murder of the Tsars. However, it should be asserted how even with these factors there was still a substantial reason for the allied countries to be able to have stable relationship if other causes in the later future after the second war did not occur. These later causes include agreements such as the Nazi-Soviet Pact and Chamberlain’s Appeasement Policy. Events such as these helped increase tensions between the USSR and the USA as well as bringing the conflict into more focus and attention by two parties, causing increased mistrust and panic from both sides. This query will examine whether the Cold War did indeed have its roots in the period before War World Two and if so then to what extent are the factors significant as causes. Starting with the causes prior to the second war, one of the biggest and initial disputes between USSR and the other allies were their differing ideologies. USSR’s values as a communist state were entirely different to the capitalism of the West. Unlike Capitalism, communism supported closed economy in which trading...

Cold War

...The Cold War The Cold War was a war between the United States and the Soviet Union. This war followed a war were they fought together. However, the two countries could never agree to disagree. The Soviet Union felt as though the United States was not treating them as though they were allies. The Soviet Union came into World War II after millions of Russians had already died. The Cold War caused the United States to have to create atomic bombs in order to defend the country. There was constant threat on the United States to be bombed which called for a cause for defense. However, this also forced many Americans to build bomb shelters in order to have a safe haven for defense. The Cold War was not only on earth, but it was also in space. The launch of Sputnik was a surprise to the US. Sputnik gave Russians the power over the United States not only on land, but also in space. They had a satellite atomic missile which was capable of destroying anything in the airspace of the US. This caused the United States to have to create their own space defense against the Soviet Union. The United States then launched the Explore I. During the Cold War Americans felt as though there was a threat to the country. If there was a threat to the country, this would mean that there is a threat to them. The knowledge of the other countries capabilities to bomb and attack the United States was not something that Americans were able to take lightly. They were forced to take their own precautions...

Cold War

...How far do you agree that the origins of the Cold War in 1945-6 owed much to ideological differences and little to personalities and conflicting national interests? There is a significant and complex argument into which aspects were the most important in the origins and sowing the seeds that led to the Cold War in the years 1945 and 1946. It is widely perceived that the variances in philosophy was the focal reason, because America and the Soviet Union had virtually polar opposite understandings on how their country should be run and consequently capitalist and communist countries could not co-exist lacking any strain. Nonetheless, it is similarly claimed that the traits of the leaders of the three countries are a substantial influence to the Cold war conflict; Roosevelt and Truman of the United States, Stalin of the USSR and Churchill of the United Kingdom. This is because the attitudes of the three regularly clashed. It is furthermore disputed that national interests of the separate nations throughout and post-World War II formed strains among the countries of the USA and the USSR, since they both saw the others objectives as a danger to their individual national security. To assist the Cold War from occurring, it is said Winston Churchill is the crucial individual due to his ideological differences with Stalin. Churchill’s 1946 ‘Iron Curtain’ speech certainly caused tension: it unveiled to the world Stalin’s increasing “Soviet sphere” and “increasing measure of control...

Cold War

...The Cold War (Russian: Холо́дная война́, Kholodnaya voyna) (1947–1991), was the continuing state of political conflict, military tension, proxy wars, and economic competition existing after World War II (1939–1945) between the Communist World – primarily the Soviet Union and its satellite states and allies – and the powers of the Western world, primarily the United States and its allies. Although the primary participants' military force never officially clashed directly, they expressed the conflict through military coalitions, strategic conventional force deployments, extensive aid to states deemed vulnerable, proxy wars, espionage, propaganda, conventional and nuclear arms races, appeals to neutral nations, rivalry at sports events, and technological competitions such as the Space Race. Despite being allies against the Axis powers, the USSR and the US disagreed about political philosophy and the configuration of the post-war world while occupying most of Europe. The Soviet Union created the Eastern Bloc with the eastern European countries it occupied, annexing some and maintaining others as satellite states, some of which were later consolidated as the Warsaw Pact (1955–1991). The US and its allies used containment of communism as a main strategy, establishing alliances such as NATO to that end. The US funded the Marshall Plan to effectuate a more rapid post-War recovery of Europe, while the Soviet Union would not let most Eastern Bloc members participate. Elsewhere, in...

The Cold War

...The cold war is one of the strangest wars ever. In this war no one was ever killed in combat, and there were no POWS. No, this war was a arms race war, and a war of influence between the two great superpowers. It still could have developed into a full fledged war. It was a very tense time in history and if a war broke out it would have been disastrous. After the second World War the world was dominated by two superpowers; the USA and the USSR. “The Cold War was a result of this division of power and of the important policy of spheres of influence. In the post WWII-era the Americans thought that the Russians were aiming to incorporate Western Europe (the US & British sphere of influence) into their sphere of influence (Eastern Europe) by supporting the communists in these countries. Their fears were enforced when a coup substituted communist for coalition rule in Prague. In this ideologically hostile environment the Cold War began. (p.15).” That showed the main reasons that the two countries could’ve gone to war for. Pretty small disputes to warrant a nuclear war. The cold war was characterised by the arms race between the two superpowers who were eager to preserve their spheres of influence. Both developed powerful weapons which were too dangerous to be used in battle, but which contributed to the feeling of security, because they acted as deterrent to battle. “These weapons could be used "politically"[as deterrent] but not "militarily"[since...

The Cold War

...The Cold War Celena Daley Kaplan University SS211: Prof. Jennifer Schmidt 03/12/2016 The Cold War began as a result of a dispute between The United States of America and The Soviet Union. Although the war was never “officially” declared, it began somewhere around 1947 and ended roughly around 1991. The term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, although there were major regional wars. The first phase of the Cold War began in the first two years after the end of the Second World War in 1945. Throughout this period, the rivalry between the two superpowers unfolded in multiple arenas: military coalitions; ideology, psychology, and espionage; sports; military, industrial, and technological developments, including the space race; costly defense spending; a massive conventional and nuclear arms race; and many proxy wars. There was never a direct military engagement between the US and the Soviet Union, but there was half a century of military buildup as well as political battles for support around the world, including significant involvement of allied and satellite nations in proxy wars. Although the US and the Soviet Union had been allied against Nazi Germany, the two sides differed on how to reconstruct the postwar world even before the end of World War II. Over the following decades, the Cold War spread outside Europe to every region of the world, as the US sought the "containment" of communism and forged numerous alliances...
