How much water is there on Earth, from the USGS Water Science School

But just how much water exists on, in, and above our planet? About 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. But water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in you and your dog.

Water is never sitting still, though, and thanks to the water cycle, our planet's water supply is constantly moving from one place to another and from one form to another. All Earth's water in a bubble This drawing shows various blue spheres representing relative amounts of Earth's water in comparison to the size of the Earth. The smaller sphere over Kentucky represents Earth's liquid fresh water in groundwater, swamp water, rivers, and lakes. Do you notice that "tiny" bubble over Atlanta, Georgia?

A good understanding of meteorology as an earth science isn't complete without an introduction to the physics and chemistry that drive weather. Understanding weather is more than reading a thermometer and recording air-pressure measurements. Students first learn about atoms and molecules, air masses, wind, and heat transfer. Then they investigate phase chance and meteorology before looking more closely at the water cycle, ocean currents, and climate. Investigations in this course: Teaching_strategies.

Make A Cloud

My oldest asks me that a lot, and although I can explain it to her I thought it would be a LOT more fun to let her make a cloud. That is why we decided to try this experiment. One of the coolest things about this experiment is that you can actually see the cloud building up in the jar and then when you take the lid off you can touch it. Both girls had fun with this experiment and we had to make several clouds so they could watch them form and then let them loose to touch. What is happening with this experiment? Check out our SCIENCE board on Pintrest for more Experiments! Supplies Jar With Lid Warm Water (should be steaming a little but not boiling) Ice Match Directions Pour warm water in the bottom of your jar. Light a match and throw into jar then replace lid. Watch the cloud form, and how it moves in a circular pattern in the jar.

Open the Jar and let your cloud free!
