Water never leaves the Earth. It is constantly being cycled through the atmosphere, ocean, and land. This process, known as the water cycle, is driven by energy from the sun. The water cycle is crucial to the existence of life on our planet.

Transcript of "Water cycle"

  1. 1. The Water Cycle
  2. 2. Water never leaves the Earth. It is constantly being cycled through the atmosphere, ocean, and land. This process, known as the water cycle , is driven by energy from the sun. The water cycle is crucial to the existence of life on our planet.
  3. 3. The Water Cycle
  4. 4. During part of the water cycle, the sun heats up liquid water and changes it to a gas by the process of evaporation. Water that evaporates from Earth’s oceans, lakes, rivers, and moist soil rises up into the atmosphere.
  5. 5. The process of evaporation from plants is called transpiration. (In other words, it’s like plants sweating.)
  6. 6. As water (in the form of gas) rises higher in the atmosphere, it starts to cool and become a liquid again. This process is called condensation. When a large amount of water vapor condenses, it results in the formation of clouds.
