Can be in oceans, seas and inland water.
Oceans: are large bodies that surround.
Seas: are small. They are partly surrounded by land and form parts of oceans.
Inland water: includes surface water and ground water, as well as glaciers.
Oceans and seas:
Movement: move and change all time producing:
Waves: they are manly producing by the wind and can be strenght.
Ocean currents: are horizontal movements of water within seas and oceans
Tide: is a regular movement in which the sea levelrise and fall.
The salt in seawater affects density: water with a higher salt content has a greater density.
Seawater temperature depends on depth: temperatures are lower in deeper bodies of water and warmer in shallower areas.
Sea water is a mixture of mineral salts: the most common component is sodium chloride (common salt). It also contains a large quantity of magnesium salts.
Can be found in variety of forms
is a body of fresh, brackish or salt water. The water in lakes comes from rivers, groundwater or from melted glaciers.
can form from sea currents that transport river sediment. Estuaries and nearby coastal areas are often heavily populated by humans .
Is a shallow lake that forms on coastlines. Lagoons have at least one inlet from the sea.
is a type of wetland found at the edge of other bodies of water, such as rivers, lakes and the sea. They can be formed of fresh, salt or brackish water and often flood.
In rivers that flow into calm sea. There is no sea current to remove river sediment, so it is able to build up in a triangular shape at the river mouth.
are often seasonal: a shallow layer of water covers the ground for only part of the year. Water accumulates from rain and groundwater in low-lying areas
is a flowing body of fresh water. Rivers flow into the sea, or into other lakes or rivers and form V-shaped valleys. Rivers are a vital source of water for human beings. They are also used for traditional inland transportation
Groundwater is water that is stored underground, beneath the surface of the Earth.
Glaciers are large masses of slow-moving ice.
Glaciers can only exist in areas of the Earth where the temperature is always, or nearly always, below 0°C
Their movement erodes the original landscape and forms U-shaped valleys..
As they move, glaciers transport moraines.
