Wetlands are distributed in the United States due to the differences in geology, water source, and climate. They consume a wider area as far as the coastal margins. In this article, I will consider the wetlands in West Virginia and the effects they have to the locals concerning the agricultural sector. West Virginia has a vast number of wetlands associated with streams. They occur in floodplains and are mainly associated with lakes or can occur as an isolated land feature. Wetlands results in large open water bodies and vegetation such as the Okefenokee Swamp.
Hydrologic processes that occur in wetlands are the processes that exist in the healthy water body and are collectively referred as the hydrological cycle. The cycle consists of components such as the precipitation, groundwater flow, surface water flow, and evaporation Cohen (1984). Wetlands continually receive water and lose it through the exchange in the atmospheres, ground water, and streams. Both of the systems provide a conducive geological setting and appropriate and constant supply of water that are necessary for the existence of the wetlands. The wetland water sum is the sum of the inflows and outflows from the wetland. The total water amount for the wetland is represented in the equation below
The importance of every component in a wetland varies in the composition of the hydrological cycle from wetland to wetland. The Okefenokee in Georgia is a typical prairie pothole. As a result, it receives direct precipitation and a considerable amount of runoff from the surrounding uplands as well as ground water inflow. It loses water to evaporation, keeping to groundwater or overflow in conditions of excess precipitation and runoff.
Wetlands are considered as a complex ecosystem in which underground water and surface water interact with each other, but since the underground water can’t be observed

There are various safety issues that have been identified as a result of such infections. The risks factors are many both human and system and therefore necessitating a closer look at them (NICE, 2008.) The joint commission released its 2010 National Patient Safety Goals and among them is goal number seven that aims to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections.
Brass smelting operations had progressed since 1977 to 1992, in a bid to exploit the brass for its commercial use. The Environmental Protection Agency identified the site’s need for clean up, and placed it in the priority list in 1999. The melting and foundry process that lasted for many years had compromised the soil and ground water safety.
Brownfields can be located in urban, suburban, and rural areas. In this rapid age of industrialization, land is not available in abundance. Hence the demand for assessing Brownfields is necessary. In United States, the term 'Brownfield' is always associated with land that was formerly used for industrial or commercial purposes.
There are various ways in which National Centre for Science Education (NSCE) has used in identifying the target audience. NCSE is a non profit organization that provides information and resources to schools, parents and concerned citizens who are working to ensure that
With the increase in the development of private ownership of property in many parts all over the world, property market has become one of the major areas of business (Abdul 2002). Purchasing a land as well as a building is a significant investment.
