What percent of Freshwater is Surface Water?

SHORT ESSAY Questions (Expectations: short essay answers are composed of multiple SENTENCES inparagraph format unless otherwise specified. For full credit, always FULLY EXPLAIN what you mean. Pleaseuse the words that make up the question in your answer.
1.) According to your text (see text p257), what percent of total water on Earth is Freshwater? Whatpercent of Freshwater is Surface Water? What are the main components of Surface Freshwater (include%)?
2.) According to the text (see text p269), what are the major uses of water by humans? Is this use holdingsteady or increasing? Why?
3.) Opinion: is our current water use sustainable? Why or why not?
Watch the required videos1.)2.)3.)
After watching the documentary videos, answer the following questions:
1.)Outline the flow of the water entering the Apalachicola Estuary beginning in the north Georgiamountains. In your answer, be sure to:
a. Identify the major bodies of water involved (freshwater, brackish(estuarine), and ocean)b. Cite where the majority of the water comes from
2) Who are the major human consumers of water in this watershed? How do they access the water – whattype of infrastructure supports human water usage?
2) What is the downstream impact of decreased water flow on the salinity (salt content) and water qualityof the Apalachicola estuary?
3) What is the status of the Apalachicola Estuary oyster and seagrass population? How is this related tothe humans use of and alteration of the Apalachicola R. watershed?
4) What has been the impact of human alteration of the water system on the socioeconomics of thecoastal human population that lives near the Apalachicola Estuary?
1. Is there a solution to this problem? How do we solve this depletion of freshwater and water distributionissue? Consider this question for both the human (population and agriculture) and the naturalriver/estuarine ecosystem perspective. (you should considersolutions on the web – cite your sources if this is the case)
2. How is our local river/estuary/ocean system (Caloosahatchee R./Charlotte Harbor National Estuary/Gulfof Mexico) doing in terms of water quality/quantity and seagrass/oyster growth? Take a second towebsearch this issue and provide a brief analysis. Are we experiencing similar issues?
