  1. 1. FINAL WATER PROJECT By Madison Orr
  2. 2. Ground water <ul><li>Ground water gets used for drinking water by 50% of people in the USA. </li></ul><ul><li>Ground water can be found almost anywhere it can be deep or shallow. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Lakes and ponds <ul><li>a lake is a low spot in earths surface filled with still water. </li></ul><ul><li>ponds are bodies of water similar to a lake but usually smaller and shallower. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Rivers and streams <ul><li>A river is a large natural channel containing flowing water. </li></ul><ul><li>The water that makes streams and rivers come from run off water </li></ul>
  5. 5. Wells, springs, and geysers <ul><li>A spring is a rock pattern that purifies river water. </li></ul><ul><li>A well is a hole that water from inside the earth's crust is collected from. </li></ul><ul><li>A geyser spews hot water from under the earths surface. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The water cycle <ul><li>The repeated movement of water between earth and the atmosphere is called the water cycle. </li></ul><ul><li>The water cycle is also known as the hydrologic cycle. </li></ul>
  7. 7. precipitation <ul><li>Water that falls to earth from the atmosphere is called precipitation. </li></ul><ul><li>Rain and snow are two different forms of precipitation. </li></ul>
  8. 8. evaporation <ul><li>Liquids change to gases by a process called evaporation. </li></ul><ul><li>When liquid water absorbs enough heat energy from the sun, it changes into the gas water vapor. </li></ul>
  9. 9. condensation <ul><li>The changing of gas to a liquid is called condensation. </li></ul><ul><li>Water vapor condenses into tiny water droplets. </li></ul><ul><li>These water droplets join to form clouds </li></ul>
  10. 10. Ocean topography <ul><li>The solid outer layer of the earth is divided into a number of large pieces called plates, which move very slowly over the earth. </li></ul><ul><li>When two plates move apart, melted material rises from inside the earth forming new crust. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Ocean topography <ul><li>Huge underwater mountains can grow where the new crust is forming called rift valleys. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is an example of a chain of towering mountains on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. </li></ul>
  12. 12. ocean topography <ul><li>When two plates bump into each other, the edge of one plate slowly sinks into the earth, melts, and is destroyed, thus developing trenches. The trenches are deep, narrow ditches in the ocean floor. These ditches are the deepest parts of the ocean. </li></ul>
  13. 13. High tide <ul><li>When the Sun and moon and earth are all aligned it causes a high tide. </li></ul><ul><li>Another name for high tide is spring tide. </li></ul>
  14. 14. low tide <ul><li>When the sun and moon and earth have a 90 degree angle it causes a low tide. Another name for low tide is neap tide </li></ul>
  15. 15. tides <ul><li>Tides are formed by the magnetic pull from the oceans moon and sun. </li></ul><ul><li>When the moon circles the earth its gravitational pull on the ocean causes the tides. </li></ul>
  16. 16. currents <ul><li>water is constantly moving . currents flow in complex patterns affected by wind, the waters heat content, and the earths rotation. </li></ul>
  17. 17. How do humans effect the water <ul><li>if a human jumps in the water, some of the water is displaced at the time the human is in the water, because two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. </li></ul>
  18. 18. How do humans effect the water <ul><li>When the human gets out of the water, he or she, usually unintentionally, takes some of the water with him or her, and it evaporates, so it leaves all its little water droplet friends behind. </li></ul><ul><li>Also when we litter, and when there are oil spills </li></ul>
  19. 19. resource list <ul><li>Science book </li></ul><ul><li>Wiki spaces </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
