Water Resources & Hydroclimate

 

Water in its three states, covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface is vital to all forms of life.  Through the hydrologic cycle, we can observe how water moves among land, ocean and air and how integral a part it plays in weather and climate. 

Water continually moves through a cycle of evaporation, precipitation and runoff, cooling the surface, fuelling plant growth and contributing to rock weathering and other biogeochemical processes. The quality of fresh water plays a fundamental role in human health.

The availability of fresh, clean drinking water is expected to decline with future climate change, and we can expect this to be the number one climate issue in the 21st century.
