The Water Cycle

Hydrosphere

The Hydrosphere represents all the water on Earth. That includes lakes, Oceans, Ponds, etc.

Geosphere

The Geosphere is all the land on Earth. That includes Mountains, Valleys, Forests, etc.

Atmosphere

The Atmosphere is the protective layering of Earth. The Atmosphere is like a force field for Earth. The Atmosphere is made up of the Troposphere, the Stratosphere, the Mesosphere, and the Thermosphere.

Evaporation

Evaporation is when water goes from liquid to a gas and is entered into the air.

Condensation

Condensation is when liquid is heated then is transferred from inside an object to the outside of the object. Like little tiny bubbles on the container.

Precipitation

Precipitation is when there is to much water in the clouds from evaporation, the water falls from the clouds and it becomes rain

Groundwater/Runoff

Groundwater is the water located beneath Earth's surface in soil and in the fractures of rock formations. Runoff is the movement of landwater to the oceans, mainly in the form of rivers, lakes, and streams.

Conduction

Conduction is the process of heat energy transmitting through collisions between neighboring molecules.

Convection

Convection is heat transfer by motion of a fluid such as air or water when the heated fluid is caused to move away from the source of heat, carrying energy with it.
