Just how much water is there?
Use this worksheet to summarise this info The drawings below show various blue spheres representing relative amounts of Earth's water in comparison to the size of the Earth.
Are you surprised that these water spheres look so small? They are only small in relation to the size of the Earth. These images attempt to show three dimensions, so each sphere represents "volume.
The largest sphere represents all of Earth's water, and its diameter is about km. The sphere includes all the water in the oceans, ice caps, lakes, and rivers, as well as groundwater and atmospheric water. Liquid fresh water How much of the total water is fresh water, which people and many other life forms need to survive?
The blue sphere over Kentucky, USA represents the world's liquid fresh water groundwater, lakes, swamp water, and rivers. The volume comes to about 10, km3, of which 99 percent is groundwater, much of which is not accessible to humans.
The diameter of this sphere is about kilometers. Water in lakes and rivers Do you notice that "tiny" bubble over Atlanta, Georgia? That one represents fresh water in all the lakes and rivers on the planet, and most of the water people and life of earth need every day comes from these surface-water sources.
The volume of this sphere is about 93, km3. The diameter of this sphere is about Yes, Lake Michigan looks way bigger than this sphere, but you have to try to imagine a bubble almost 55 km high—whereas the average depth of Lake Michigan is less than 91 meters.
