Surface Water: Definition & Properties

1. Surface Water: Definition & Properties

Surface water is the liquid that collects on the earth's surface such as oceans, rivers, and wetlands. Explore the definition and properties of surface water including temperature, salinity, dissolved nutrients, and turbidity.

The Distribution of Water on Earth

2. The Distribution of Water on Earth

Water covers a good amount of the surface of the Earth, and allows for the existence of life on our planet. It moves and changes forms through the water cycle, affecting weather, geographical features, temperatures, and water supplies. Investigate how water is distributed on Earth, in forms such as soil moisture and surface water.

Water Quality & Water Supply: Definition & Purpose

3. Water Quality & Water Supply: Definition & Purpose

Learn the difference between water quality and supply, including the factors that make up good quality of water, and why it's important for humans and other animals alike. Check the quality of your learning by finishing with a quiz.

Water Sampling: Tools & Protocols

4. Water Sampling: Tools & Protocols

It is important to have good sampling methods when testing water so that we can determine the actual quality of the water. In this lesson, we will look at some of the tools and protocols for sampling water.

Chemical Contaminants in Water

5. Chemical Contaminants in Water

Have you ever wondered what the major causes of the chemical contamination of our precious water supply are? Or, perhaps you've wondered what important chemical contaminants are? This lesson outlines both.
