In the Southern Hemisphere there is 4 times more ocean than land. Throughflow is the horizontal subsurface movement of water on continents. Such labor, because it does not produce a capitalist marketed good, is not counted in the value of labor-power.
Within the soil system, several different forces influence the storage of water. In the early s when food prices jumped as a result of Nixon Administration manipulation of the supply and demand for agricultural goods, there was a rapid expansion in home gardening and canning.
Another portion of the precipitation may flow along the edge of the plant canopy to cause canopy drip. Groundwater also flows because of gravity to surface basins of water oceans located at lower elevations.
If liquid and solid forms of water can overcome atmospheric updrafts they can fall to the Earth's surface as precipitation. Capillary action moves water from one area in the soil to replace losses in another area biggest losses tend to be at the surface because of plant consumption and evaporation.
After a rain, infiltration can create a condition where the soil is completely full of water.
