Presentation1-lacrossse23-lacrosse

  1. 1. The Water Cycle By: David Rich
  2. 2. Condensation <ul><li>The act or process of reducing a gas or vapor to a liquid or solid form. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Evaporation <ul><li>Process by which radiant energy from the sun turns liquid water into a gas (water vapor). </li></ul>
  4. 4. Transpiration <ul><li>The passage of watery vapor through the skin or through any membrane or pore. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Accumulation <ul><li>The act of gathering and collecting. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Precipitation <ul><li>Falling products of condensation in the atmosphere, as rain, snow, or hail. </li></ul><ul><li>The amount of rain, snow, hail, etc., that has fallen at a given place within a given period, usually expressed in inches or centimeters of water. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Snow <ul><li>A precipitation in the form of ice crystals, mainly of intricately branched, hexagonal form and often agglomerated into snowflakes, formed directly from the freezing of the water vapor in the air. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Rain <ul><li>Water that is condensed from the aqueous vapor in the atmosphere and falls to earth in drops more than 1/50 in. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Hail <ul><li>Showery precipitation in the form of irregular pellets or balls of ice more than 1/5 in. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Surface Runoff <ul><li>Surface runoff is water, from rain, snowmelt, or other sources, that flows over the land surface, and is a major component of the water cycle. </li></ul>
