Many of the exponents are incorrect.  Here is the corrected Table 2.1.

 

Location Percentage of Global Water Volume of Water (km3) Mass of Water (kg)
Oceans 97 1.37 x 109 1.37 x 1021
Ice 2 2.8 x 107 2.8 x 1019
Groundwater 0.7 9.4 x x106 9.4 x x1018
Lakes 1 x 10-2 1.25 x 105 1.25 x 1017
Soils 5 x 10-3 6.5 x 104 6.5 x 1016
Atmosphere 1 x 10-3 1.3 x 104 1.3 x 1016
Rivers and streams 1 x 10-4 1.7 x 103 1.7 x 1015
Biosphere 4 x 10-5 6 x 102 6 x 1014

Location Correction
Page 67, Equation 4.5 Exponent in the numerator has the wrong sign – should be 2.898 x 103
Page 67 “Wien’s displacement law”, not “Wein”
Page 69, Equation 4.7 Units of the solar constant, SO, are W/m2 not W as in the equation.  (Units are correct in the text.)
Page 76, Figure 4.6 Radiance is too large for wavelengths longer than 17 mm (wavenumbers in the 400-600 cm-1 range) and shorter than 8 mm (wavenumbers 1300-1400 cm-1).  Here is the original figure from Hanel et al. (1972):
