Industrial-style ships used for the large-scale collection and processing of fish.

Fertility

The ability to reproduce.

Flora

Fluorine

(symbol F) All fluorinated gases are created by humans. The creation and/or use of refrigerators, air conditioning systems, foams and aerosols are the main source of fluorinated gas emissions. They are the only type of greenhouse gas that is created and emitted solely through human activities and so we are directly responsible for their appearance in our atmosphere.

Forests

Lands on which trees are the principal plant life, usually conducive to wide bio diversity.

Fossil Fuels

Coal, oil, petroleum, and natural gas and other hydrocarbons are called fossil fuels because they are made of fossilized, carbon-rich plant and animal remains. These remains were buried in sediments and compressed over geologic time, slowly being converted to fuel.

Fracking

The process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, boreholes, etc. so as to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas, such as CSG.

Fugitive emissions

Releases of pollutants to the atmosphere that occur when vapors are vented from containers or tanks where materials are stored. They can also be caused by spillage during the unloading of vehicles, leaks from pipes and valves, and through equipment operation.
