Abstract:

The Ecuadorian Amazon has an area of ​​1,23 x 107 ha, due to its mega biodiversity and its distribution is classified as a hot spot in the world. The overlap in its territory by oil activities, protected areas, ancestral territories and intangible zones generates a series of environmental conflicts. The oil spills have generated negative impacts on the soil, plants and animals, promoting an increase in the quality of the soils in the region. The objective of this study was to evaluate the oil contamination process in soils of the Northern Region of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Netlogo 3D software version 5.2.1 was used to simulate the evolution during 24 hours of oil percolation. The simulation scenarios were recorded according to the porosity (%) of the soils of the Northern Region of the Ecuadorian Amazon. The temporal evolution of the occupation of the soil by the oil particles is conditioned by the variables: texture, dynamic pressure, volume, gravity, vegetation cover. The dynamics of oil percolation in the simulations is directly proportional to the existence of porous spaces in the Ecuadorian Amazonian soil. The understanding of this phenomenon allows to define strategies of prevention and to mitigate the potential risks for the ecosystems.

Rumblings of a Philadelphia Eagles Fan
A football team is really owned by the fans who pay good money to see the games and buy the merchandise. Coaches and owners come and go. nfl jerseys A player will risk serious bodily injury going to war for his team, but he will change his colors and fight for the opposing team if the money is right.The Philadelphia Eagles are my team and I want my Super Bowl ringPhiladelphia Eagles .

Buddy Ryan coached the Eagles from 1986-1990. connor barwin jersey I remember the excitement of that period and the feeling that a championship team was being formed. A young Randall Cunningham was making big plays with his strong arm and fast legs. The suffocating defense consistently ranked among the best in the league. Unfortunately, allen barbre jersey this talented team never even managed to win a playoff game.

Andy Reid was brought in as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999 to turn a struggling franchise around and succeeded in building a strong contender. Led by quarterback Donovan McNabb and a strong defense, josh huff jersey the Eagles went to five conference championship games but only managed to win one of them. In 2004, twenty-four years after their first and only other appearance in the big game, marcus smith ii jersey the Eagles lose the Super Bowl again.
