Course Overview

Water covers 71% of the total earths surface and extends to an average depth of about 4 km. About 98% of this immense volume occur in the oceans, while a small fraction occur as freshwater in lakes, rivers and polar ice caps. Freshwater is among the most used of the world’s resources. No settlement can be far from a source of it and many of the worlds civilisations have developed along the rivers. For example, the Nile, Indus and Mesopotamia.Whereas the riparian people have continuously benefited by having settlements near the water bodies, they have also impacted negatively on these ecosystems. It should also be remembered that this closeness to water has inflicted diseases to humans, carried by water or animals that live in it.
