What was once thought to be a mere drop in the bucket, compared to freshwater elsewhere around the world, has now been determined to be much more plentiful. Finite, but plentiful, for now.
It’s water beneath the sea near regular seashores. Eons ago, when the world’s oceans were far smaller, rain and snow saturated the filled groundwater basins worldwide. As the ice melted and the seas advanced to cover more ground, those freshwater aquifers became buried, out of reach by those that could use it.
