Faut-il concevoir une limnosphère?

Abstract : After examining the different components structuring the geographical spheres, showing the systemic interactions, their global links and their sphericity, it is suggested to coin the neologism of limnosphere to designate the envelope of the Earth where occurs the water cycle influenced by the inland water bodies. The limnosphere is defined as the spherical envelope of the global system. It is structured by limnic water, which includes all the standing waters of lakes, ponds, pools and swamps, whether natural or artificial, without the biocentric preconceived idea that underlies lentic environment. The limnosphere integrates the socio-cultural dimension and involves recognizing that not only some specific territories but the entire planet is strongly characterized by inland water bodies.
