TermDefinition
Atmosphere the envelope of gases surrounding the earth or another planet.
Hydrosphere all the waters on the earth's surface, such as lakes and seas, and sometimes including water over the earth's surface, such as clouds.
Cryosphere The cryosphere is those portions of Earth's surface where water is in solid form, including sea ice, lake ice, river ice, snow cover, glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets, and frozen ground. Thus, there is a wide overlap with the hydrosphere.
Lithosphere the rigid outer part of the earth, consisting of the crust and upper mantle.
Geosphere any of the almost spherical concentric regions of matter that make up the earth and its atmosphere, as the lithosphere and hydrosphere. Web.
