Heath of a Water Cycle System
By Katherine and Melissa
What is a water system?
A water system is when small rivers flow into bigger rivers that flow into the ocean and the health of this system is important to water in it and to the organisms that use it.
Turbidty is a measure of concentration of particles suspened in water. High turbidty reduces light penetration and visibility in the water. It also can change the pH of the water
Temperature can also affect dissloved oxygen levels (Dissloved Oxygen is the oxygen dissloved in water.). For example cold water holds more oxygen than warm water does. An increase in water temperature is called thermal pollution which causes a decrease in dissloved oxgyen levels.
