# As water evaporates from the oceans, what happens to the total amount of water on Earth?

Feb 5, 2017

No water from the Earth goes out, beyond the cloud-bearing troposphere of the atmosphere. It is all circulation, $\uparrow \mathmr{and} \downarrow$ the troposphere

#### Explanation:

Sea accounts for more than two thirds of the surface of the Earth.

The water on the Earth is mostly ocean water.

Only surface water from the oceans evaporate. The conditions

favoring evaporation might be triggered from within or radiation,

from the Sun.

Before precipitation, atmospheric water is in the form of fog and

mist.

Roughly, on the average, at any time, nearly one half of this total

is up there.

In the other half, a little more than half of this precipitates over the

land; a little less than this fall over oceans.

Conservation : No water from the Earth goes out, beyond the

cloud-bearing troposphere of the atmosphere. Overall, it is all

circulation, $\uparrow \mathmr{and} \downarrow$ the troposphere.

This my analysis, from what I could recall from my memory. For

facts and figures, the references are aplenty.
