  1. Chapter 12: WATER

  2. People can obtain groundwater by drilling a well • into an aquifer • Into an impermeable layer • Into the unsaturated zone • above the water table

  3. A lake that stores water for human use is called a(n) • pond • dam • reservoir • oxbow lake

  4. Water that falls to Earth as rain, sleet, snow or hail is called • transpiration • evaporation • condensation • precipitation

  5. Water that fills the cracks in underground soil and rock layers is • salt water • groundwater • water vapor • rain water

  6. The water in ponds and lakes is • salty • moving • deep • still

  7. The streams and small rivers that feed into a main river are called • reservoirs • divides • watersheds • tributaries

  8. Approximately what percentage of Earth’s water is salt water? • 3% • 25% • 75% • 97%

  9. All living things need water for all of these reasons EXCEPT • for cellular respiration • for shelter or as habitats • to break down food, grow & reproduce • to carry out body processes

  10. Nearly one third of the U.S. is covered by the Mississippi River • divide • aquifer • watershed • tributary

  11. The Coriolis Effect is • the effect of the Gulf Stream on deep ocean current. • the effect of the Earth’s rotation on the direction of winds and currents. • the effect of large tsunamis created by earthquakes and strong currents. • the effect of Earth’s revolution on the direction of winds and currents.

  12. A climate event that occurs when surface waters in the eastern Pacific are colder than normal is • a biome change. • El Nino. • La Nina. • ocean conveyor belt.

  13. Which of the following is not true about surface currents? • They are caused by the differences in the density of ocean water. • They are mainly driven by wind. • They are affected by the Coriolis Effect. • the Gulf Stream is the largest and most powerful surface current.

  14. An artesian well is a • type of hot springs from which the water periodically erupts • water trapped between rock layers that rises because of pressure • place where groundwater bubbles or flows out of cracks in the rock • underground layer of rock or sediment that holds water

  15. Which watershed does West Geauga Middle School reside in? • Chagrin River/Mississippi River • Cuyahoga River/ Mississippi River • Chagrin River/ Great Lakes • Ohio River/ Missouri River

  16. Sources of ____ on Earth include rivers, ice, lakes and groundwater. • watersheds • aquifers • salt water • fresh water

  17. A ____ is a large stream of moving water that flows through the oceans. • tributary • current • Gulf Stream • reservoir

  18. Water moves easily through ___ materials. • permeable • impermeable • eutrophication • reservoir

  19. Some people obtain their water from underground layers of rock or sediment called • lakes • tributaries • reservoirs • aquifers

  20. Clouds form when water vapor in the atmosphere ____ into water droplets. • precipitates • condenses • evaporates • transpires

  21. The top of the saturated zone is called the • watershed • divide • aquifer • water table

  22. A ridge of land that separates two watersheds is called a(n) • reservoir • divide • tributary • aquifer

  23. In the process of ___ plants use carbon dioxide and light energy to make their own food. • eutrophication • cellular respiration • photosynthesis • Coriolis Effect

  24. Over many years, the levels of nutrients in a lake build up in the process of • eutrophication • cellular respiration • photosynthesis • Coriolis Effect

  25. The area of soil in which the pores are totally filled with water is called the • Coriolis Effect • saturated zone • unsaturated zone • water talbe
