Transcript of Water Cycle

Water becoming vaporized. Liquid changes into a gaseous. Evaporation Precipitation Water that falls to the ground Transpiration water flows down hills into the oceans. Example:

Rain, Snow Condensation Example: The water which is on your window in the morning. Example:it rains snows sleet and hails the water will soon be carried off into a lake or river or sewer and carried out into the ocean to start the water cycle all over again Example:

This is rainwater

evaporating from

warm pavement after

a thunderstorm. Example:

we put plastic bags over a plant, and

then in an hour there was water on the

inside of the bag. Infiltration Water Cycle What is the sun's role in the water cycle? The role of the sun is to evaporate
the water and make it into water

vapor so clouds could absorb it

an later it becomes precipitation.

The sun is the most important

part of the water cycle. Earth's water is always in movement, and the natural water cycle, also known as the hydrological cycle, describes the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. Water is always changing states between liquid, vapor, and ice, with these processes happening in the blink of an eye and over millions of years. How do porosity and permeability affect the overall water cycle (run-off and infiltration)? As the porosity is the greater, then the run off is more, because it has more space. Also, the permeability is the greater,then the infiltration is more fast and deeper. Run-off Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil. Transpiration is describes the process where plants absorb water through the roots and then give off water vapor through pores in their leaves. Example:

It rains snows sleet and hails

the water will soon be carried

off into a lake or river or

sewer and carried out into the

ocean to start the water cycle

all over again. The process by which a gas cools and becomes a liquid. How do porosity and permeability affect the overall water cycle (run-off and infiltration)? How do the slope and the permeability of the land affect the amount of water that infiltrates the surface and becomes groundwater(the difference between run-off and infiltration on a gentle slope, compared to a steep slope? Infiltration is the downward movement of water into the soil and

run off is when water flows above the surface of the soil. So

that's why the slope is higher, the run off move fast. By the time,

the permeability of land is greatest, the infiltrates is more deeper. The rate of precipitation affect the discharge of a river because

the rate of precipitation is higher, then the discharge of a river is

more higher. the river release water to up more, it will be fall

rain more into river. How does the rate of precipitation affect the discharge of a river? (cc) image by rocketboom on Flickr (cc) image by quoimedia on Flickr (cc) photo by medhead on Flickr Example:
