Question

Alexa Ogno via Facebook asked:

Is there more water in the atmosphere or the oceans?

Answer

We posed this question to Peter Braesicke from the University of Cambridge...

Peter - Itís definitely more water in the oceans because the atmosphere does hold a considerable amount of water, but compared to all the oceans, itís still pretty small.
