Where is Water?
Gulf of Mexico
400 miles long, 5,387 feet deep
20% of All fresh surface water
Water below ground supports land.
This photo shows the dropping of the land over the last 50 years in the San Joaquin Valley (home to our good friend the delta smelt).
The dropping level is due to the pumping out of ground water
is so salty it does not support life. Boats generally do not go here as you would need to knock the crusty salt off of the propeller regularly.
A salt water marsh
is similar to ours but it is salty. They make great nurseries for fish and sea birds. They also act as buffers from the ocean storms to land. They can be found along the coast in the Carolinas, Louisiana and many other places. They are often drained and destroyed so that they can be developed for homes and businesses.
The Chesapeake bay is one of the most productive fisheries in the US. It is now greatly polluted due to over-development and poor farming practices. This bay has coastline in Maryland and Virginia. It is BIG.
