What is Antarctic polar ice an example of? a freshwater reservoir
What would increased farm activity around local waterways result in? a strain on the local water availability
What has the greatest effect on a community's stores of freshwater? the average annual rainfall
What type of precipitation most often soaks the ground and refills groundwater? a gentle, long-lasting rain
What does river basins best demonstrate? water movement within the water cycle
What does differences in elevation affect? how water drains into local watersheds
What is the role of the water cycle? it circulates existing water on Earth
What would most likely increase the amount of water available for local use? decreased evaporation
What river system moves the most freshwater on Earth? Amazon River
Rivers and streams transport nutrients, salts, sediments, and pollutants. What is the correct order for this process? watersheds, estuaries, oceans
How does the development of more tributaries affect a local watershed? the amount of water carried by the watershed is increased because it is gathered from many streams near the source of the river
What is true concerning the structure of the hydrosphere? the ocean is connected to many lakes, watersheds and waterways
What would happen if annual rainfall amounts were reduced by 50%? a drought
If an area that uses a reservoir was suffering from a drought, why would water authorities continue to release water into a watershed from the reservoir? the flowing water keeps the river basin healthy
What process removes the most available water from the local water supply? evaporation
Where does all water on Earth eventually flow? oceans
How would the size of Raleigh's population related to the availability of water in the area? as population increases, water availabiltiy decreases
What are you actually seeing when you see a mirror cloud up after breathing on it? water droplets that formed from cooled water vapor in your breath
What is an example of water evaporating? a puddle disappearing on a hot summer afternoon
