Transcript of Water Cycle
Jackie Snyder Precipitation The process by which water is converted from its liquid form to its vapor form. Evaporation It is a change of water from its gas from into liquid its liquid. Condensation Infiltration Surface Runoff Evaporation
Surface Runoff The Stages of the Water Cycle It is formed when the when the clouds are either warm or cold. Wind speed
Humidity Factors that affect evaporation: Factors that affect precipitation: Prevailing winds
Mountain ranges It falls in either a solid or a liquid form. water vaporizes at 100 degrees Celsius
evaporation is caused by hot molecules moving faster and faster until becoming a gas.
water takes up 75% of your brain and 25% of your bones. 3 Facts on Evaporation: Cumulus Clouds
Stratus Clouds Condensation is responsible for the formation of clouds such as: Dew forming on grass in the early morning
Eye glasses fogging up when you enter a warm building on a cold winter day
Water drops forming on a glass holding a cold drink on a hot summer day Examples of Condensation: Condensation occurs when water droplets form due to cooling air. When warm air cools, water leaves the vapor that is in the warm water and condenses into liquid. How Condensation works: Infiltration is an important process where rain water soaks into the ground, through the soil and underlying rock layers. Infiltration helps as the only source of water to maintain growth of plants and helps sustain the ground water to supply wells, springs and streams. How Infiltration works: Water flow that occurs when soil is infiltrated to much and can not hold any more. Elevation
Rainfall intensity, amount, and duration
Basin shape Things that affect surface runoffs: the three different ways in which rainfall and clouds are formed are frontal, relief and convectional.
there are four different ways that precipitation can fall, they are as snow, rain, sleet, and hail; Facts On Precipitation: Factors that affect Infiltration: Slope angle of ground surface
Hydraulic conductivity of soil
Presence of vegetation cover
Density of vegetation cover The End Runoff can collect many different types of pollution before it reaches a body of water, including debris, dirt and chemicals. Surface Runoff Problem?
