    Where does water come from? We know from science that water evaporates from the ocean reservoir, is captured in clouds, fog and rain, descends to seep into the underground aquifer or be distributed via lake and stream. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill reminds us that the ocean exists at both ends of the water cycle--at mountaintop and abyssal plain--and essential to the sustainable ocean is the protection and conservation of the vast, fluid passage upon which each of us on this earth relies.
