Where's the Water?

Introduction


It's easy to take water for granted. In most parts of the United States, every time you want to take shower, water a lawn, or fill a swimming pool, clean, fresh water runs out of the tap. In countries with substantial and stable infrastructure, freshwater is so available that many people don't realize how critical this resource is.

In this lab, you'll analyze data and interpret graphs and charts that show the distribution of the world's water. You'll develop a sense of where the world's water is, as well as where it's going.
