  2. 2. Sun Click the words on the picture to learn more CondensationPrecipitation Evaporation Bodies of Water
  3. 3. The Sun-The sun warms the Earth’ssurface and heats it.-When the water is heated itturns to a vapor and rises.-The sun is the source ofenergy that drives the watercycle.
  4. 4. Evaporation- Evaporation is the process in which water is turned from a liquid to a vapor.- Heat is the energy that breaks the bond of water molecules so they can rise.- Evaporation from the ocean makes up 80% of precipitation.
  5. 5. Water Vapor- Water vapor is water in the form of gas.- Forms of vapor: clouds, steam, and fog.
  6. 6. Condensation- Condensation is the opposite of evaporation.- Condensation is the process in which vapor is turned back into a liquid.- The water particles rise and form clouds.
  7. 7. Precipitation- Precipitation is caused once water particles in clouds get so heavy the fall.- Precipitation is the produce of condensation.- Forms of precipitation: rain, snow, hail, sleet, graupel , and drizzle.
  8. 8. Forms of Precipitation-Rain-Snow-Hail-Sleet-Graupel-Drizzle
  9. 9. Infiltration- Infiltration is the process in which water on the ground enters the soil.- The water moves underground between rock and soil.
  10. 10. Bodies of Water- The amount of water on Earth is always the same.- 97% of water is in oceans.- 2.4% of water is frozen in glaciers.- .5% of water is groundwater.- .01% of water is in lakes and rivers.- Only 3% of water on Earth is fresh water.
  11. 11. Groundwater- Groundwater is water under the ground in the soil and rock fractures.- Groundwater is also called an aquifer.- Groundwater can flow to meet other bodies of water like rivers or lakes.
