The Water Cycle
Transcript of The Water Cycle
liquid water to water vapor.
Water from oceans and lakes of the world
evaporate,or rise as water vapor into t
he atmosphere CONDENSATION Condensation is the changing from water vapor to liquid water. When water vapor evaporates, it gathers in the atmosphere and creates clouds. Then, the water in the cloud condenses, and eventually falls back to earth as precipitation. FRESH WATER STORAGE Streams, rivers, creeks and ponds all store fresh water, which evaporates into the atmosphere. Fresh water is water containing less than 1,000 milligrams of dissolved solids (salt) GROUND WATER STORAGE AND DISCHARGE Vast amounts of water are stored underground, unseen, moving below our feet. This water is used for drinking and irrigation. The discharge, is it's flow rate through the underground permeable rock layer (aquifer). INFILTRATION Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil. It is the process of the soil absorbing the water to be stored, and used by plants. SURFACE RUNOFF Water from rain, snow-melt, or other sources, runs across the land. This occurs when soil has been fully infiltrated, and can hold no more water, so the excess water runs across the land. WATER STORAGE IN ICE AND SNOW TRANSPIRATION Transpiration is when the stomata in a plant leaf open, and they "sweat", letting water vapor escape in their attempts to collect co2 for photosynthesis SUBLIMATION
