Water that soaks/sinks into the ground continues to seep down until it seeps to a depth of about 100 metres. Then, it soaks further down and:Hits the water table- the level beneath which porous rocks are saturated water.Becomes a part of the aquifer- an area of porous rock with a water system flowin…

Answer - horseisle:water Hydrology is about the study of water, and for others, water management. In specifics, it is the study of movement, distributions and quality of the product, water. How this fits in into earth science is that it is very much related to physical geography and climatology.…

No. The water table (groundwater surface) is a location of varying depth depending on the topography and the location of aquifers and their associated permeable layers. There can be multiple water tables.

Artesian water is found in the basin. Although it is too salty for humans to drink, animals and livestock can drink it. It can also be used for watering crops, and thus it is a very important source of water for people living in the outback. Bores are sunk to reach the water and licenses are require…

The Moon's gravitational pull on the Earth, and to a lesser degree the Sun's gravity as well. The Sun's gravity force is much weaker on Earth's surface than the Moon's gravity because of its greater distance. While the Moon creates the overall change in the level of the oceans, each location will h…

The study and application of hydrology is important because it is used for water management systems and for producing quality drinking water. Also, without this field of science, proper distribution of water will not be available.

Most of the earth's fresh water is stored as ice in the Arctic and Antarctic regions of the globe. About 1.7% of the earth's entire water supply exists in icecaps. Other useful statistics: Approx. 97.5% of the earth's water is stored in the ocean and is not usable because it is saline. The remaini…

Oceanography is the study of the ocean. Hydrology is the study of the quality, distribution, and movement of water. Oceanography and hydrology cross paths in many areas, including: prediction of ocean system movement, echohydrology in the ocean biome, and chemical hydrology of ocean water.

It's classed as a category itself but is allied to, or perhaps a branch of, geology as it studies the movement of water within the ground, so understanding a particular region's hydrology demands knowing that region's rocks and their structures, porosities and permeabilities.

Tides are caused by "tidal forces" (named so after the tides) from the Moon. The "tidal forces" refer to the fact that one side of Earth - the side that is closest to the moon - is attracted stronger by the moon than the opposite side.

The volume of all fresh water on Earth would be about 8 to 10 million cubic miles. That sounds like a lot except that 2/3 of that is frozen into glaciers and the ice caps in Greenland and Antarctica. ----- Estimates vary on the percent of the Earth's water that is fresh, but it is only about 2.5 t…

The Moon's gravitational pull is the main CAUSE of the tides on Earth. (The Sun has a similar, smaller effect.) The Earth's daily rotation means the water "bulges" caused by the Moon's gravity move around the planet, giving us what we know as the tides.

Everything is structured in the solar system. Even if the Sun moved a little bit we would all burn, or freeze to death. So, thus having to do with that, having the moon move twice as far, the moon controls magnetic fields with the earth and us, thus having to believe in emotional problems and someti…

the gravitational pull would have less of an effect because it's moving at a faster speed. And since the gravitational pull is what causes the earth's tides, then they would most likely be less effected.

Yes, but usually not in liquid form. Most planets, and many moons and comets have water. But on the hot planets Mercury and Venus, and the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn, it is only a trace vapor. On Uranus and Neptune, it is a superheated ionized slush near the core. On Mars, Pluto, and most moons, …

Short Answer: Of all fresh water on Earth, 69% is frozen. And, even it it melts through global warming, most of it goes into the ocean. Basically, all the water we get is either from rain or what is pumped up from the rapidly diminishing aquifers. There is not really much fresh ware on Earth. 1.74%…

Tides are formed because of the pull of gravity of the moon. When the moon is on one side of the earth, it exerts extra force on one side causing a shift in tidal motion.

90 degrees? Yikes! The tides would be the least of our worries. This would be a totally unstable system, and anything that survives the strange tides would probably be destroyed after the catastrophic collision of the two moons.

Effect? That's not just an "effect" - the Moon is what causes the tides in the first place!

Presumably the question is about the Earth's rotation stopping. Eventually, the Earth WILL almost stop rotating on its axis and will become "tidally locked" with the Moon.
