“Water and the Tsunami That Caused the Worst Nuclear Disaster in History”
The number one element that all living things cannot live without is WATER. I love water even though when I was a little girl I almost drowned. This report is going to explore the importance of water its properties and hazards, new science from renowned author, water expert, Dr. Masaru Emoto and also the unprecedented catastrophe from Fukushima’s Nuclear Power Plant, in Japan from the tsunami.
Water is the most abundant compound on Earth's surface, covering 70 percent of the planet. Water is so incredible it is the only substance that can occupy 3 states of matter - a solid, liquid, or gas. It is called the “universal solvent” which means it can be used with more substances than any other liquid. The water molecule has a very high surface tension and is highly sticky and elastic, especially with non-metallic liquid and tends to clump together in drops than spread out. The human body when we are born we have about 75 percent water as we grow older we have about 65 percent.
Another very interesting fact is that air pressure affects the boiling point of water that is why it takes longer to boil an egg in Denver than the beach. The United States Geographical Survey states, “The higher the altitude, the lower the air pressure, the lower the boiling point of water, and thus, the longer time to hard-boil an egg. At sea level water boils at 212°F (100°C), while at 5,000 feet, water boils at 202.9°F (94.9 °C).” http://water.usgs.gov/edu/water-facts.html
The "hydrologic cycle" is known as the natural water cycle, meaning continuous movement above and below the surface of the earth. The earth’s water supply is 332.5 cubic miles of water, over 96% is saline. 68% is in ice and glaciers, 30% of freshwater are in the ground. River and lakes are our sources for most of our daily water consumption and it constitutes about 1/150th of one percent of total water. http://water.usgs.gov/edu/watercycle.html
The water cycle is driven by the sun which heats water in the oceans some evaporates. Ice and snow sublimate directly from the solid state into a vapor. Rising air current takes the vapor into the atmosphere along with the water evapotranspiration, which is transpired from the plants and soil. In the atmosphere where it is cooled to make clouds. Transpiration studies show that 10% accounts for the moisture in the atmosphere, where 90% from oceans, lakes and streams and a tiny amount coming from sublimation.
Clouds move around the world by way of the air currents and cloud particles collide, grow, and fall out of the sky as precipitation like rain, snow or ice and can accumulate as ice caps and glaciers, which can store frozen water for thousands of years. Most precipitation falls back into the oceans or the land due to gravity. Groundwater seepage accumulates and is stored as freshwater in lakes from the runoff.
United States Geographical Survey states, “That not all Infiltration goes into...
