What is fresh water flowing across the surface of the land usually to the sea?
If you were asking what the fresh water is called that flows across the surface of the land, then your answer would be: Runoff is fresh water that flows along the surface of the ground. It originates from precipitation or melting snow and ends up in rivers, lakes, or oceans. A river. I assume you are asking "why" and not "what". Water, like all other matter on earth, is affected by the earths gravity. Gravity has pulled much of the surface water into large pools, we call oceans, that cover the lowest parts of the planet. Fresh water deposited on land by rain, sleet, snow, and hail will follow this same downward path towards the oceans. So I guess the real answer to your question is gravity.
