Transcript of "Water cycle chris and catherine"

  1. 1. The Water Cycle describes the movement of water on, in and above the earth. Water is an ever changing state and is always moving around.
  2. 2. • Evaporation • Condensation • Precipitation • Collection • Transpiration • Percolation
  3. 3. Evaporation occurs when the sun heats up water in rivers, lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapour or steam. The steam or vapour then departs the water source and moves into the air. BACK
  4. 4. Condensation occurs when water vapour in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, consequently forming rain clouds. BACK
  5. 5. Precipitation happens when the water has condensed so much that the air can no longer hold it. The clouds subsequently become very heavy and the water falls back to earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow. BACK
  6. 6. Collection occurs when the water falls back to earth and onto the oceans, lakes, rivers and even the land. When it falls on the land it will either soak in and form part of the ‘ground water’ that plants and animals use to drink. It may also run over the top soil and collect in the oceans, lakes and rivers. BACK
  7. 7. Transpiration is the evaporation of water from plants. It mainly occurs in the leaves while their stomata is open for the passing of carbon dioxide and oxygen during photosynthesis. BACK
  8. 8. Percolation refers to the slow movement of water through the pores in the soil or through rocky surfaces. This area is currently experience quite a bit of percolation following of recent floods. The water is sitting in the surface of the soil and not absorbing properly. BACK
