The Hydrosphere

The word Hydrosphere refers to the water on, under and over the surface of the Earth.

Water is essential for life. Humans can only drink freshwater to survive. As most freshwater is trapped in ice and glaciers there is not much water for human consumption left. It is important to preserve water, to recycle it and to use it in a conscious way to assure our lifelihood.
