    Dead zones are low-oxygen, or hypoxic, areas in the world’s oceans and lakes. Because most organisms need oxygen to live, few organisms can survive in hypoxic conditions. The dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico is indicated in red, above. The so-called Gulf Dead Zone is a region of the ocean where there is so little oxygen that almost no life.

A high school teacher and soon-to-be wife winds up in a fateful car crash that turns his life upside down. When he awakens from a five-year coma, he discovers that through physical contact he can predict a person's ultimate fate. This power can serve to be a gift, or a curse, as Walken soon realizes when he shakes the hand of a power-hungry politician/5.

    Restoring dead zones requires reducing nutrient delivery from nearby lands. The resistance to recovery occurs for three reasons: River catchments which typically possess a huge capacity for storing nutrients over long periods of time, Having a healthy population of marine plants and animals hat can provide the seed stock, and eutrophication. This comprehensive lesson plan includes 30 daily lessons, multiple choice questions, 20 essay questions, 20 fun activities, and more - everything you need to teach The Dead Zone!
