What powers the hydrologic cycle?
How do humans impact the cycle?
- -Groundwater overpumping
- -Deforestation(uptake decreases, more surface water and groundwater-mudslides(mass wasting)
- -Pavement Development - decrease infiltration, flooding decreasing water supply.
What is groundwater?
Water found in the saturated pores of soil and sediment.
Why is groundwater important?
Largest reservoir of freshwater
