Abstract

Prepare for Flash Floods C0 is being constantly exchanged between the Flash floods outrank all other natural disasters in the ocean and atmosphere. Therefore, predicting the portion of the C0 entering the ocean that will be United States and kill 160 people during an average effectively trapped or removed is vital to climactic year. This high death toll indicates the need for research. thoughtful preparation when dealing with floods which become especially dangerous after spring snow In polar regions, the cold ocean surface layer sinks melt or heavy rains. in some areas and becomes part of deep ocean bottom water where the entrained C0 is effectively The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis- removed from contact with the atmosphere for long tration National Weather Service issues forecasts and periods of time. A second important process is re- warnings for over 3000 locations along the country's moval process of C0 by biological processes. Carbon major waterways and recommends the following 2 dioxide from the surface layer is used in the marine precautions for people who live in flood-prone areas. photosynthetic process where C0 is combined with • Install check valves in sewer traps to prevent 2 water to form biomass.
