 HYDROSPHERE - WHAT   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
The hydrosphere is the liquid water component of the Earth.
The hydrosphere covers about 70% of the surface of the Earth and is the home for many plants and animals.
Second, it works with the atmosphere to redistribute the energy received from the sun such that the heat in the topics, where a lot of energy is received from the sun, is transferred toward the poles, where heat is generally lost to space.

 The Hydrosphere   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
The hydrosphere is often called the "water sphere" as it includes all the earth's water found in streams, lakes, the soil, groundwater, and in the air.
The hydrosphere interacts with, and is influenced by, all the other earth spheres.
The biosphere serves as an interface between the spheres enabling water to move between the hydrosphere, lithosphere and atmosphere as is accomplished by plant transpiration.
