Der Grundstoff des Lebens

Der Grundstoff des Lebens
Around 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water. Around 70% of the human body consists of water. And water is in every organic cell.

Description

The basic substance of life thus seems to be abundant on Earth. And water also occurs in nature – as the only chemical compound – in liquid, solid and gaseous states.

However, over 97% of the total water supply on earth consists of the salt water of the seas, only 3% is fresh water. And the fresh water is bound to a large extent in the ice of the Arctic and Antarctica as well as in glaciers.

That's why water is so precious even in Graubünden – in this mountainous region, where there are 444 glaciers with a total area of 183 square kilometers.
