How can the oxygen store in myoglobin be replaced after use?

Myoglobin has a very high affinity for oxygen, meaning it binds it very strongly. At very low oxygen concentrations in the cell, myoglobin releases its oxygen, despite the high affinity, simply because there are too few oxygen molecules around to rebind to the myoglobin when they are released naturally from the myoglobin (which usually occurs anyway). Once the oxygen concentration increases again, returning to normal, oxygen molecules will collide with myoglobin. The myoglobin, with its high oxygen affinity, will strongly bind any oxygen that meets it, replenishing myoglobin's oxygen storage very quickly. As myoglobin's affinity for oxygen is stronger the haemoglobin's, it will 'steal' oxygen from haemoglobin in the blood very easily, replacing its bound oxygen. This binding system serves to release oxygen when it is needed if blood oxygen levels are reduced (due to high levels of exercise), but replenishes the supply when oxygen levels begin to rise again.

Dangers in the silurian period?

You may face troubles with the organisms, for the sea life was then dominant... but most likely it would just be the humidity of the time, and the dominant, or dangerous organisms during the time.

How can you determine if oxygen levels are high or low?

When oxygen levels are high people tend to get a 'high' sensation. When the oxygen levels are low, it feels like you are going to pass out. There are other ways to tell, but generally you would need prodigious equipment, that is most likely very expensive.

Do Sea Otters live in the benthic or pelagic environment?

Sea otters live in the pelagic environment. They are able to survive in the high levels of salt, regulate their body temperature and are able to adapt to the low-oxygen environment.
