Runoff/Water Surplus

Department of Geography Univeristy of Orgeon,

This animation, available in the Flash or GIF format, shows monthly water surpluses. An interesting point for students to ponder is why Antarctica, one of the few areas with constant water surpluses, is classified as a polar desert. In the Flash format, the animation can easily be rewound or paused to stress important points.
