FRESHWATER, BRACKISH, AND SALTWATER
By: Adam Virani
Freshwater is naturally occurring water such as ice sheets, ice caps, glaciers, icebergs, bogs, ponds, lakes, rivers and streams, and underground as groundwater in aquifers and underground streams.
Brackish water is water that has more salinity than fresh water, but not as much as seawater. It may result from mixing of seawater with fresh water, as in estuaries, or it may occur in brackish fossil aquifers.
Salt water is water with salt in it. Examples of saltwater would be the ocean and salt lakes.
