The world’s water exists naturally in different forms and locations: in the air, on the surface, below the ground, and in the oceans. Freshwater accounts for only % of the Earth’s water, and most of it is frozen in glaciers and icecaps.

The World Meteorological Organization cites that Central American countries have few actual problems of scarcity, using on average less than 10% of the water resources available. However, projections made for, and indicate that, for example, by El Salvador will show initial levels of stress (%) and for the year Flynn Creek crater is a km diameter, million-year-old impact structure located in north central Tennessee, and is an invaluable terrestrial analog for the study of impact cratering dynamics.

Introduct. Growing human population, increased demand for water and energy, and a changing climate have contributed to concerns of how freshwater resources and food supply and production may be stressed.

Both water resource managers and the agricultural community need to know the amount, distribution, timing and onset of seasonal rain and snow to prepare for freshwater shortages and forecast crop yields.
