Transcript of Structure of the Hydrosphere

Believe it or not, most of the water on Earth is in the ocean Water Distribution Water Distribution How the water moves Earth's water is not stagnate, in other words it is not still. It is moving from one location to the next. We call this the water cycle, the continuous movement of water on Earth. The water does not always move in the same direction, however, it can only go to a couple of destinations. When it precipitates, or water that falls to the Earth's surface in the form of rain, sleet, hail. or snow, water can do several things:
The water can flow over the land without sinking into the ground which is called runoff.
Some of the water evaporates; changes into a gas. When this occurs, water eventually condensates; changes back into a liquid.
Some of the water is absorbed by plants and is released as a vapor into the air directly from the leaves of plants. This is called transpiration. The Structure of the Hydrosphere Where is the water? What is the hydrosphere? The hydrosphere is what we call the combination of all the water on Earth. It includes water found in the atmosphere, lakes, rivers, ice caps, glaciers, and the ocean. Where do you think most of the water on Earth is? All Water Icebergs, glaciers, snow, permafrost
69% Salt Water
(Seas and Oceans)
97% Freshwater- water that is not salty
3% Groundwater
Water located below Earth's surface
30% Lakes, Rivers, atmosphere, etc
