The ways in which human activities interact with the water cycle can have devastating consequences for all forms of life. These range from the very large scale - for example, the effects of the movement of large volumes of water in a tsunami - to the molecular scale and the ability of water to dissolve solids, such as agricultural fertilisers (Figure 1).

  • losing important information

9.2 Other hazards

9.2.1 Stumbles, falls, etc.

Such minor accidents are always possible, especially on rough or uneven terrain. It is recommended, therefore, that boots should be worn to protect the feet and ankles, and that outer clothing should be of a suitable nature to minimise the chance of cuts, scratches, and abrasions being sustained. Wearing gloves will minimise damage to hands.
