What is Canary Islands?

The Canary Islands, usually referred to colloquially as the Canaries are an archipelago of Spanish islands in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Micronesia.

They are 100 kilometers (62 miles) west of Morocco, where they are the closest to the continent of Africa. They are the most southern Spanish autonomous community.

The islands are the most populous special territory of the European Union with a population of 2.2 million.

The seven major islands, one minor island, many small islets, and the Canary hotspot all originated as volcanic islands. The only location in Spain where volcanic eruptions have been documented throughout the Modern Era is the Canary Islands, where some volcanoes are currently active.

Thus option C is correct.

Explain how the distribution of solar energy around earth affects ocean surface currents

Answers

The distribution of solar ocean currents regulates global climate, helping to counteract the uneven distribution of solar radiation reaching Earth's surface.

What is the meaning of solar radiation?

Solar radiation is a broad term for the electromagnetic waves that the sun emits. It is also sometimes referred to as "solar energy" or "just sunshine." A multitude of devices can be used to collect solar radiation and transform it into productive forms of energy, including heat and electricity.

Solar irradiance is the amount of energy per square meter received by the sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation that falls within the measurement tool's wavelength range. In SI units, solar irradiance is expressed as watts per square foot.

Daylight, UV irradiation, infrared, radio signals, X-rays, and gamma rays are all types of solar radiation. The surface of the temperature increases as a result of solar energy that reaches it. However, because the globe emits energy into space and the atmosphere, the average temperature of the earth remains constant. The radiation that is emitted is at the same temperature as the earth and reaches its peak in the infrared spectrum.

Answers

Either a decrease in population or a decrease in income will cause consumers to demand less goods and services at each price level. This can be seen from the demand curve: which shows how much buyers are willing and able to buy at different prices (he price is plotted on the vertical (Y) axis while the quantity is plotted on the horizontal (X) axis). The demand for a normal product rises when income rises, and vice versa. So, in our case if the goods are "normal" the demand will be decreased

As many landfills run out of space, some communities are making plans and tackling their heaping piles of garbage with innovative solutions. Of the garbage Americans produce every day, only about thirty percent reaches a recycling center. Education about how and what to recycle is costly but essential. Much of the junk we consume and throw out is not designed with recycling in mind. This solid waste creates one of the biggest problems: recyclable material is clogging landfills. In order to extend the lifespan of their landfills, some communities are expanding recycling programs and trying new technologies to turn trash into energy. A few cities are planning new energy plants that burn garbage to produce energy while still producing less pollution than landfills. Several other cities have facilities that use bioreactor landfills to speed up the decomposition process for trash from 100 years to 5-10 years. The costs and pollution generated by landfills force communities to think creatively about what to do with everything we throw out. Which of the following sentences from the paragraph is the topic sentence? 1. In order to extend the lifespan of their landfills, some communities are expanding recycling programs and trying new technologies to turn trash into energy. 2.
