Why are rivers fresh water?



  1. 0 Votes

    Freshwater is defined as having a low salt content (usually less than 1%). When evaporation occurs in the ocean only the water is evaporated and brought into the atmosphere. The salt stays in the ocean water. Then the condensation drifts to land in the form of clouds and precipitates (rains) onto the land. This water has no salt content in it and is therefore known as freshwater when it collects into rivers.
