Which stores groundwater?

Which stores groundwater? a. glacier b. runoff c. aquifer d. lake

Answers

Hey there!

The correct answer would be B. Aquifer.

To start, groundwater is water located under the ground, instead of on the surface of the Earth. Bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, and oceans are non-examples of groundwater since they are located on the surface of Earth.
This would eliminate choice D. Lake, and B. Runoff (runoff is water that does not sink into the ground after precipitation and such).

The answer would also not be A. Glacier, since glaciers are located above the Earth. 

The final answer would be C. Aquifer, since aquifers are located below the ground and are made of a permeable rock that allows water to seep into it and be stored. 

Hope this helps and have a nice day! 🙂

c. aquifer    i just took the test

Groundwater is enclosed in aquifers. Groundwater is found within a large range of rocks, but the most effective aquifers are found in porous, open cavities, and permeable rocks. Aquifers can contain salty, briny, and fresh water. Groundwater can exit the aquifer by the pumping of a well, which is usually called discharge.
