Sense of Agency and the Environment

 

Action and commitment from local people who care about their environment and others improves the quality of life.

What positive actions and commitments can individuals take to help them self and others?

Is it possible to overcome the restrictions of families, local communities, or the culture of the wider society?

 

 

 

Do you think and care?

What environmental space influences you?

Can you make positive things happen?

Or, are you restricted by circumstances?

How can you improve the quality of life and the environment?

SAILING WEST COAST OF SCOTLAND | YACHTING SKYE | CRUISING SHIANT ISLANDS & OUTER HEBRIDES | SAILING THE MINCH

 

Sailing Shiant Isles Minch Outer Hebrides Scotland from Eddy Jackson on Vimeo.

 Introduction

An early April cruise on the West Coast of Scotland covered two hundred and fifty miles from Armadale, Skye through Kyle Rhea to the Crowlin Islands, Rona, the Shiant Islands, the new Isle of Harris, North Harbour, Scalpay, and Loch Harport, had calm settled weather. A small fleet of three yachts from the Penguin Crusing Club sailed in company. The video was filmed aboard the Dutch yacht Ab Fab on charter from Armadale.

Ab Fab was the first yacht to use the new Isle of Harris Marina pontoons in north harbour on Scalpay. The Penguin fleet sailed across the Minch from Rona via the Shiant Islands.

Thought of the Day

In terms of individuals, boat crews, and the larger flotilla, what is going on here?

What are their narratives and story? 

How do they make things happen?

You can apply this problem-management approach in many contrasting situations and organisations.

 

Main Part

How does it feel being surrounded by rainbows plunging into the swirling lochs at dawn on a murky Spring day? Even at neap tides, the currents and eddies buffet vessels as they transit this narrow passage between mainland Scotland and the Isle of Skye.

Kyle Rhea is a classic pilotage and great care must be taken due to strong tidal streams. Eight knots are the norm in this tidal gate. However, with good timing and seamanship skills, the Kyle Rhea is a must-do and terrific transit to complete.

Once through, new scenery, adventures, and challenges begin.

THE ABOVE 360 VIDEO REQUIRES CHROME OR A 360 FRIENDLY BROWSER

Travelling north on neap tides, a yacht records a 360 video of the passage between the mainland of Scotland and the Isle of Skye.

The crew let down their hair and have fun on Rona. When sailing in fair winds in the Minch travelling south along the coast of the Outer Hebrides they burst into song.

Hydrologic Water Cycle Geography Videos

 

Geography Video Hydrologic Water Cycle from Eddy Jackson on Vimeo.

 

 

Oceans, lakes, and rivers cover over 70% of the earth’s surface.

Evaporation moves water from the surface into the air as vapour. Clouds may form.

 

 

Hydrological Cycle Introduction from Eddy Jackson on Vimeo.

 

Rain and snow carry water back to the surface.

The process is called the hydrological or water cycle. Use your words to define and describe this.

How and where people live is determined by their water supply.

Assess a globe and a world map to consider the implications.

Explain how lack of water for home, industry, and farming is an important issue.

Evaluate sustainability and the management of water supplies to communities may create tensions.

Water Cycle Geography Videos

 

 

Water Cycle

The hydrolic cycle describes the circulation of the planet’s water. Temperature and weather conditions influence whether water is gas, liquid, or frozen.

Oceans, rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere influence the movement of water.

Can you think why, where, and when this occurs?

What happens?

Recycling Water

Earth has been recycling liquid water, as solid ice, or as a gas vapour for billions of years.

When you drink a glass of water, think who may have tasted it before you.

A polar bear, a brontosaurus, a Viking, farm animals, or an ancient city dweller?

 



 

Evaporation and Condensation

The changing state of water is due to evaporation from the oceans into an invisible vapour. Clouds hold this and condensation produces liquid rain or snow.

Think about this process and trace the weather patterns that cause it.

 

The Hydrolic Cycle

Run-off rainwater may return into rivers by flowing into the oceans. The water in hydrolic cycle is part of a never ending pattern.

Make a picture, diagram, or collect images of the water cycle.

 

Your Local Water Cycle

Using your location, map out, make a chart of your local water cycle.

What factors may influence the water supply?

 

Glaciers and Snowfields

Glaciers and snowfields trap and contain freshwater in it frozen state. Snow and ice trap most of Earth’s freshwater.

12% of the earth is ice today. Thousands a years ago, it was a third of the planet.

Check out and contrast the changing nature of the frozen planet over time.

Sea Level Rises 

Melting ice caps and glaciers cause sea levels to rise. What is the impact for communities around the world?

Summary Water Cycle

The movement of water is a dynamic process. It involves changes in different physical states.
