Weather- Water Cycle

  1. 1. Water travels in a cycle yes it does.
  2. 2. The water cycle is driven by the sun • Water is always moving • Evaporation • condensation • precipitation • transpiration
  3. 3. Evaporation • Heat causes liquid water to turn into a gas • everyday tons of water evaporates from oceans, lakes, rivers, & moist soil • This warm gas rises
  4. 4. Condensation • As water vapor cools it turns from a gas to a liquid • when a large amount of water vapor condenses on dust particles, a cloud forms
  5. 5. Types of condensation • Humidity • dew • frost • fog
  6. 6. Precipitation • Water falling back to Earth • when water in the clouds gets to heavy, then gravity goes to work
  7. 7. Types of precipitation • Rain • sleet • snow • hail • drizzle • dew
  8. 8. Runoff • After precipitation, water that runs back into a river, lake, or ocean
  9. 9. Groundwater • Some rain soaks into the soil forming pockets underground • eventually most of this returns to a larger body of water
  10. 10. Transpiration • Loss of water vapor from plants • Evaporates out through the leaves
  11. 11. How does this affect weather?
  12. 12. ??????????????? • What causes evaporation? • Where on Earth does evaporation occur? • What causes condensation? • How do mountain ranges affect the water cycle? • How does temperature affect precipitation?
