## charlotte123 3 years ago Describe an interaction between the hydrosphere and the geosphere.

It rained a lot today.

2. charlotte123

wha? O_O

3. CliffSedge

hydrosphere = water geosphere = ground

4. CliffSedge

I suppose to be a true interaction, though, the geosphere needs to give something back . . . So, it rained a lot today, and then when the sun came back out, a lot of the water evaporated back into the sky.

thanks ^-^

How about the water cycle? :) Isnt that an interaction? XD

7. CliffSedge

Might want to make a statement about erosion too for extra dramatic effect, otherwise my story is still a little boring.

8. CliffSedge

What I mentioned first is really just a water cycle thing. For a real hydro-geo interaction, the water should actually do something to the ground.

9. charlotte123

ahh I see :O so it is an interaction? :)

I believe that the water cycle is an example of an interaction between the hydrosphere and the geosphere. The water cycle is a process where all water moves through every other sphere of Earth. All the water in oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, and underground make up the hydrosphere. So, in the water cycle, all the water that makes up the hydrosphere moves through every other sphere of Earth. Since the geosphere is a sphere of Earth, in the water cycle, the water that makes up the hydrosphere moves through the geosphere (and the rest of the spheres of Earth). So, the hydrosphere and the geosphere interact in the process. *The spheres of Earth all work together, interacting as a system.

^ how is that for an answer? :)

12. omnomnom

Its pretty good :D

That's a bit broad and vague, bringing in other spheres. The question asks specifically about hydrosphere and geosphere. An interaction means an action-reaction pair. The action of water flowing over rock or soil has a reaction of the soil or rock eroding. That would be more specific and answer the question more directly.
