Brackish Water

Has more salinity than fresh water, but not as much as seawater (semi-salty). It may result from mixing of seawater with fresh water.

Fresh Water

Permanent ice is the largest freshwater storage on Earth, accounting for about 2% of the total global supply - or nearly 69% of the total freshwater supply. Freshwater is also found beneath the Earth's surface as groundwater (30% of the total freshwater supply) and in surface water storage such as lakes, streams, swamps and, marshes.

Saltwater

Saltwater is water with salt in it. Most it often means the water from the seas and oceans.
