Abstract

Limnic water is the structuring element of the limnosphere, which could be defined as the envelope of the Earth, where the water cycle transiting through one or more continental water bodies occurs. As a part of epigeosphere and landscape sphere, limnosphere is characterized, practically over its entire thickness and extension, by the contact between atmosphere, lithosphere and hydrosphere. Since 1958 and the coining of the word ecosphere by L.C. Cole, the concepts of sphere and system are close, so that limnosphere may be defined as the envelope of the global limnosystem.
