Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are equipment and technological means to study terrestrial space. They are used by researchers, companies, NGOs, governments, intelligence services, among others. GISs result from the combination of three different types of technologies: Remote sensing, GPS and geoprocessing. They are extremely important for society and for science as a whole. Among its many functions we can say that through them:
Agricultural products that are produced extremely long distances from the US can be sold in American markets today due to __________.
Agricultural products that are produced extremely long distances from the US can be sold in American markets today due to refrigeration and preservation.
Preservation refers to a process that preserves food for a longer period without spoiling. Preservation inhibits microbial activity and enzymatic activity, allowing food products to be marketed throughout the year, regardless of geographical location, which offsets local variations in production and seasonal differences in availability.
The most common preservation methods are freezing, sugaring, drying, salting, lactic acid fermentation, smoking, acidification, vinegar preservation, sealing, heat treatment, irradiation, use of preservatives, pasteurization and UHT heating.
Sediment spreads horizontality and it goes from youngest on top to oldest on bottom. When sediment deposits in water, it also spreads flat in all directions until it either runs out of material and pinches off or it hits a barrier. This is known as the _____.
