WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OUR WATER?

Introduction:

Help! We’re surrounded! Water, water everywhere! You cannot get away from it. Fortunately there is no need to escape. As you know from the previous assignments and from your own experience, water is very user friendly. In fact, water is very necessary for life.

Because water is so important for our existence, it important that we know where it is and how much there is. You may be surprised by what you find. For example, did you know that there is 100 times more water found in the atmosphere than there is in all the rivers of the world combined? WOW!!

Assignment:

· Identify the major reservoirs of Earth’s water

· You must identify at least 8 reservoirs.

· Make a chart, a bar graph, or a pie graph showing how much of Earth’s water is stored in the ocean and how much is fresh water.

· Make another chart, bar graph, or pie graph showing how much water is stored in each of the different types of fresh water reservoirs.

· Do NOT copy the graphs directly off the web site given.

[NOTE: A reservoir stores stuff. The Earth’s largest water reservoir is the ocean. Other of Earth’s water reservoirs include the atmosphere, ice caps, rivers, and so forth.]

The following web site should help:

There you go! That is it. Simply make TWO charts or graphs and you are done with the assignment. Send your work to me. If you can attach it to an email message, GREAT! If you cannot, send it to me via the postal service. (My address is on the INFORMATION page.)

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!
