Types of Water

Christian Sevilla

Fresh Water

- naturally occurring water on the the Earth's surface

- low salinity

- can be found in ice sheets, ice caps, glaciers, icebergs, bogs, ponds, lakes, rivers and streams, and underground as groundwater in aquifers and underground streams

Brackish Water

- has more salinity than fresh water

- not as much salinity as salt water

- may result from mixing freshwater and salt water

- can be found where fresh water meets salt water (ex. estuaries, etc.)

Salt Water

- water from a sea or ocean

- high salinity
