Underground aquifers OCEANS 2nd largest compartment
contain 1.5018 tons, or 5.2%
contains life
effected by: Glaciers (temp), evaporation, rainfall Major Water Compartments BY: ZACHARY NEAL PARK Great areas where water is stored
water cycle makes it all possible
H2o moves.. but its fixed
Hydrologic Budgets- analysis water transfers between compartments Atmosphere Surface Water WE HAVE MOVEMENT!! Water cycle starts with Solar Energy by the sun
runoff GLACIERS 3rd largest compartment
contain 0.019018 tons, or 0.1%
Frozen water
effected by temperature...GLOBAL WARMING!! O_O UNDERGROUND AQUIFERS not as substantial
well water - minerals
Effected by tectonic plates and gravitational movement
most of the time untouched unless cracks in earth SURFACE WATERS Largest major compartment is in Deep Lithosphere
27018 tons (27-billion-billion tons) of water, or 94.7%
include shallow groundwater (2.7014 tons), inland surface waters such as lakes and rivers (0.27014 ton)
Effected by everything: droughts, evaporation, precipitation, etc ATMOSPHERE Smallest of the compartments giving it less turnover time
turnover time- time water is spent in the compartment before leaving
0.14014 tons.. not enough to be a percentage
moved by evaporation and precipitation
