Hydrosphere

Hydrosphere

  • All of the ___________ on planet Earth

  • “___% of the earth is covered by water and only 29% is terra firma” (University of Florida).

  • “______ Planet” – water is not found on any other planets in our solar system.

  • “It is because the Earth has just the right mass, the right chemical composition, the right atmosphere, and is the right distance from the Sun (the “_________" principle) that permits water to exist mainly as a liquid” (U of F).

  • The great variety of surface temperatures and pressures allows water to exist in all three states.

    • Solid = _____________

    • Liquid = _____________

    • Gas = _________________

  • The ________________ contain most of the water (approx. 1.35 million cubic metres)

  • The ___________ heat capacity of water and the ___________ volumes of water “_________ the Earth surface from large temperature changes such as those observed on the moon” (U of F Hydrosphere).

  • “Water is the universal _____________ and the basis of all _______ on our Planet” (U of F Hydrosphere).

  • “Benjamin Franklin to comment[ed] "When the well's dry, we know the worth of water.“” (U of F Hydrosphere).
