Now that you have shared information about what you know about the location and distribution of water on Earth and within Texas and have explored multiple perspectives about the factors that influence water distribution, it is time for you to research and revise your ideas on the uneven distribution of water on Earth and in Texas using the Web. Use the Web sites listed at the bottom of the page to help you understand this topic. Find out information about the following topics related to each region.
|Hydrogeology||Ocean/atmospheric circulation||Water resources||Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ)|
|Weather||Runoff||River basin/drainage basin||Wetland|
This chapter leads you to consider key aspects of the water cycle as you investigate the relationship between precipitation and streamflow. The duration and intensity of the precipitation, soil porosity, the slope of the ground, and the time of year, emerge as some of the potential factors in this investigation. Using real-time water data for Texas, you can analyze regional precipitation and how it influences the location and distribution of water in their region. Available statewide streamflow table.
