Transcript of Glaciers

Water Cycle
Effects of glaciers
on the environment

Water goes in a cycle just like a bicycle's wheel going round and round
1)It first starts off where water from lakes and rivers evaporates and changes state from liquid to gas or even sublimation; ice into water vapour from glaciers

2)Condensation then beings when water vapour goes into the atmosphere and cools forming tiny droplets that creates clouds

3)If the droplets combine,eventually it becomes too heavy to stay in the air and precipitates in snow,rain,or hail

4)The precipitation that fell mostly goes back to lakes,rivers or on the mountains

5) This process repeats again from the lakes,rivers,and mountains
Glaciers can change the temperature and can cause massive flooding when it melts.

How water is important to me
We drink water
It extinguish fires
It plays a key role in shaping the world
Water makes electricity
Glaciers are important because they store fresh water,which we need to survive with. It also is the home of many endangered species and plays a role in the water cycle.
