Hydrosphere – Notes
The Hydrosphere is made up of water.
Water covers more than 71% of the earth’s surface and land covers just 29%.
More than 97% of water on the earth is in the oceans and seas.
A little less than 3% of water is in the form of glaciers.
A very small percentage of water is available as fresh water.
The four major oceans are:
- Pacific Ocean
- Atlantic Ocean
