Hydrosphere: Two – thirds of the Earth’s surface is surrounded by water which is present in seas and oceans. The presence of water is found in small or large reservoirs. In addition to the depth, there are wide variations in water.

Different types of motion are found in the water bodies. Limitless stores of organic and inorganic resources are also found in the hydrosphere.
