    Surface water is just that. It is a term encompassing all the fresh waters on the surface of the earth, exposed to the atmosphere, not underground (groundwater). “Surface waters” include lakes, stream, ponds, rivers, puddles, etc. Most use the term “surface water” to specify only FRESH water, not oceans.
    The “surface water” of the oceans is that portion exposed to sunlight and affected by wind.
