Transcript

  • 1. The Water Cycle
  • 2.
    • Describes the movement of water on, in, and above the earth
    • Water is always changing and moving from one place to another
    • This cycle is made up of a few main parts:
    • Precipitation
    • Infiltration
    • Runoff
    • Transpiration
    • Evaporation
    • Water Vapor
    • Condensation
    • Collection
  • 3.
    • The repeating change of water on the Earth creates a cycle
    • As water goes through its cycle, it can be a solid (ice), a liquid (water), or a gas (water vapor)
    • Ice can change to become water or water vapor
    • Water can change to become ice or water vapor
    • Water vapor can change to become ice or water.
  • 4.
    • Happens when the temperature and the atmospheric pressure are right
    • The small droplets of water in clouds form larger droplets and precipitation occurs. The raindrops fall to earth.
    • Occurs when so much water has condensed that the air cannot hold it anymore
    • The clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow
    • Click the speaker below to hear rain falling
  • 5.
    • Rain: Sleet:
    • Snow: Hail:
  • 6.
    • Important process where
    • rain water soaks into the
    • ground, through the soil and underlying rock layers
    • The flow of water from the
    • ground surface into the ground
    • Once infiltrated, the water
    • becomes soil moisture or
    • groundwater
  • 7.
    • Movement of water underground is called groundwater flow
    • Groundwater slowly moves through the spaces and cracks between the soil particles on its journey to lower elevations
  • 8.
    • The movement of land water to the oceans, mainly in the form of rivers, lakes, and streams
    • Consists of precipitation that neither evaporates, transpires nor penetrates the surface to become groundwater
    • Excess runoff can lead to flooding, which occurs when there is too much precipitation
  • 9.
    • Process that happens through plants
    • As plants absorb water from the soil, the water moves from the roots through the stems to the leaves
    • Once the water reaches the leaves, some of it evaporates from the leaves, adding to the amount of water vapor in the air.
  • 10.
    • The process where a liquid, in this case water, changes from its liquid state to a gaseous state.
    • The sun heats up water in rivers or lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapor or steam.
    • The water vapor or steam then leaves the river, lake, or ocean and goes into the air.
  • 11.
    • Water in its gaseous state-instead of liquid or solid (ice)
    • Totally invisible
    • Extremely important to the weather and climate
      • Without out it, there would be no clouds or rain or snow
      • All of the water vapor that evaporates from the surface of the Earth eventually returns as precipitation - rain or snow
  • 12.
    • Formation of liquid drops from water vapor
    • Occurs when a parcel of rising air expands and cools
    • Responsible for the formation of clouds
      • These clouds may produce precipitation, which is the primary route for water to return to the Earth's surface within the water cycle
  • 13.
    • When water falls back to earth as precipitation, it may fall back in the oceans, lakes or rivers or it may end up on land
    • When it ends up on land, it will either soak into the earth and become part of the “ground water” that plants and animals use to drink.
    • It may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts all over again.
  • 14.
    • Adding or subtracting heat makes the cycle work.
    • If heat is added to ice, it melts. If heat is added to water, it evaporates.
    • Evaporation turns liquid water into a gas called water vapor.
    • If heat is taken away from water vapor, it condenses.
    • Condensation turns water vapor into a liquid.
    • If heat is taken away from liquid water, it freezes to become ice.
  • 15.
    • Humans use water for drinking, respiration, perspiration, and elimination of wastes are all part of this cycle
    • Large amounts of water are needed for most economic activities: agriculture and mining, food processing, manufacturing
    • Lakes and rivers provide towns and cities with a means of discharging wastes
  • 16.
    • Generation of electricity from thermal power plants
    • Waterways provide transportation
    • Recreational activities
    • Some people view the rivers and large lakes of this country as a part of their own identity
    • AND MUCH MORE!!!

  • 19.
    • The water cycle is called the hydrologic cycle. In the hydrologic cycle, water from oceans, lakes, swamps, rivers, plants, and even you, can turn into water vapor.
    • Water vapor condenses into millions of tiny droplets that form clouds.
    • Clouds lose their water as rain or snow, which is called precipitation.
    • Precipitation is either absorbed into the ground or runs off into rivers.
    • Water that was absorbed into the ground is taken up by plants.
    • Plants lose water from their surfaces as vapor back into the atmosphere.
    • Water that runs off into rivers flows into ponds, lakes, or oceans where it evaporates back into the atmosphere.
    • The cycle continues.
