    Every 3,100 years, a volume of water equivalent to all the oceans passes through the atmosphere, yet there is only about a thousandth of one percent of the planet's total resides in the atmosphere at any moment, enough to deposit about 25mm of rain if it fell uniformly throughout the world. Water evaporated from the sea surface takes about 10 days to fall again as rain. Source: Phillip Ball (1999, pp 23-25)
