Water Cycle
Interesting Facts
Water is mandatory for most inanimate and animate life on Earth. The human body is able to live a month without food however, only a week without water.
Water Cycle
Water is everywhere on our planet and is fundamental for life to strive on Earth. The water cycle is the cycle which characterizes the perpetual movement of water, from the depths of the ocean to the white bulbous clouds and the conversion of one state to another. Water that you drank this morning can possibly be water that flowed fluently in the rivers or lakes back when Australia was not colonized by the Great Britain. The water cycle is also known as the hydraulic cycle or stated as the chemical formula H O cycle. The chemical formula of a water particle is H O which consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom The cycle possess 13 essential phases that scamper from the blue ocean to the circular atmosphere. Even though water does not provide calories or nutrients it is essential for human and other life forms to consume this liquid. Earth is found to be the only planet in the observable cosmos where water can be obtained in 3 states: solid, liquid and gas.
The Phases
Precipitation
Water is a liquid we consume or gaze everyday in our significant lives,
but not everyone thoroughly knows about the water cycle.

Water descends down to the Earth's surface providing water for plants and humans. Precipitation manifests mostly as rain, drizzle, hail, snow,hail, fog drip, graupel, sleet. Each year an approximate 505,000km of water falls however 308,000 of it is over the oceans.

Canopy Interception

This is precipitation hindered by vegetation. Ultimately, this water is evaporated back into the clouds that occupy in the alpine altitude.
The Phases
Snowmelt
The rapid runoff produced by melting snow. If the snowmelt is frosted throughout the runoff, alarming accidents will occur and do occur.
Water accumalte from various places to maneuver accros the land. This includes streamflow(channel runoff, flow of water through rivers, streams and other channels. Water may seep into the ground, evaporate into atmosphere, gathered by lakes or reservoirs, or potentially be used for human needs.
Runoff
The Phases

Infiltration
When water on the surface of the ground enter the sepia soil. Resultingly, the soil either becomes soil moisture or groundwater.
Subsurface Flow

The water flow beneath the Earth's surface. The soiled water is compelled to move slowly or is stored in an aquifer, an absorbative rock which contains and/or transports ground water.

The Phases
Evaporation
Possibly being the most crucial and most ravishing phase in the water cycle, the phase where water is dispersed high into the transparent clouds through solar radiation also widely known as sunlight.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_radiation
Sublimation
The radiated phase where water as a liquid is turned into diverese state,gas.
Deposition
The altering phase where the state of the liquid water is changed to the solid state ice.
The Phases
Advection
The expeditious movement of water in the variable states solid and liquid through to the atmosphere.
Condensation
The alteration of water to liquid droplets in the air as a logical result cloud and fog.
Transpiration
The release of water vapor, a gas that cannot be seen, from the flourishing plants and silt soil.
Percolation
By the vigorous force of gravity water streams horizontally through soil and rocks.

97% of Earth's water is salt water, subsequently only 3% is fresh water.
Approximately 2/3rds of the fresh water is stored in Polar Ice Caps and glaciers.
Ice Caps in Greenland can store water for a record of 100,000 years.
An elephant can sense water 5 kilometers away.
The geyser in Yellowstone, National Park, USA, Old Faithful can surge water 52 meters up into the air.
The rat is the animal that can last longest without water.

Relatively, 75% of a tree is water.
A staggering 4500 people die every day because of the lack of clean water.
