  1. 1. The World Of Water <br />By: Ryan Lynch<br />
  2. 2. Water Distribution<br />Water is distributed all over the world!<br />Some places may have more than others.<br />The different places water is distributed are polar ice caps, oceans, groundwater, and fresh water.<br />97% is ocean water<br />3% is fresh water<br />
  3. 3. Fresh Water Distribution<br />68.7% Ice caps and glaciers<br />30.1% Ground Water<br />0.9% is other<br />Fresh Surface Water 0.3%<br />87% lakes <br />11% swamps<br />2% rivers<br />This information was found on <br /><br />
  4. 4. Hydrologic Cycle<br />The Hydrologic cycle, also called the water cycle, is a transportation of water through gas, liquid, and solid states.<br /><br />
  5. 5. Hydrologic Cycle<br />This is a more descriptive Hydrologic cycle image. <br /><br />
  6. 6. Hydrologic Cycle<br />The Hydrologic Cycle (water cycle) goes through many states or forms. Water can be evaporated from the ocean,end up in the mountains, and run down its sides. <br />The Hydrologic Cycle is continuous, which means there is no beginning and no end.<br />Water supply on earth has been at the same level as it was in the beginning of time!<br />That means that all water on earth now was on earth during caveman times!<br />
  7. 7. River Systems<br />A river system is the combination of stream channels draining a river basin.<br /><br />
  8. 8. River System<br />A river system is made of many different parts.<br />River source<br />River mouth<br />Wetlands<br />Floodplains<br />Main river and tributaries <br />Meanders<br />Watershed<br />
  9. 9. River Source and River Mouth<br />The river source is where the river begins, most often in the mountains.<br />The river mouth is where the main river drains into a bigger body of water, like an ocean, a lake, or another river.<br /><br />Mouth<br />Source<br /><br />
  10. 10. Wetlands<br />Wetlands are areas where water and land meet.<br />Wetland areas have been so saturated with water that the soil is always wet.<br />Wetland areas have plants that are adapted to living in this kind of soil.<br />Marshes, swamps, and bogs are types of wetland areas.<br /><br />
  11. 11. Floodplains<br />A floodplain is an area of mostly flat land along either side of a river which often floods after heavy rains.<br />A floodplain’s soil is often rich in nutrients which have been deposited by a flooding river.<br />A floodplain is an excellent area in which to grow food because of the rich soil.<br /><br />
  12. 12. Main River and Tributaries<br />The main river is the primary course of a river.<br />Tributaries are smaller streams or rivers that feed into the main river.<br /><br />
  13. 13. Meanders<br />A meander is a turn or a loop in a river.<br />A river that meanders does not flow straight, but has lots of curves.<br />Rivers that are older have more meanders than more recently developed ones.<br /><br />
  14. 14. Watershed<br />A watershed is an area of land that is drained by a river system.<br />A watershed is also known as a drainage basin or a river basin. <br /><br />
  15. 15. Groundwater<br />Groundwater is fresh water that has collected beneath the earth’s surface.<br />Most groundwater is found in aquifers or underground streams.<br />Groundwater is used for irrigating crops, drinking water, and public use (such as firefighting and public swimming pools). Many industries and mining facilities depend on groundwater.<br />In 2000, 21% of water used in the U.S. was from groundwater.<br /><br />
  16. 16. Groundwater Use<br /><br />
  17. 17. The End <br />By: Ryan Lynch<br />My slideshow is now over, but the water cycle is forever.<br /><br />
