Basic Water Science

Water Basic Science information is presented for Science Students, Parents, Science Teachers, Schools and Agencies to help with basic water projects focusing on fresh water.
Our planet depends on water for all environments. Water is very simple. The water molecule is H2O, only two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Very simple. Plus, water never wears out. This simple water molecule just keeps cycling and recycling and recycling and recycling forever.

Water: the ultimate renewable resource.

During each cycle, water establishes an equilibrium with every situation encountered.

Each time this simple water molecule comes in contact with the natural environment, the subsequent water reactions become very interesting. Water reacts and dissolves the local surroundings. Water produces all the environments we interact with and depend on every day.

All life contains water,
