Water Cycle

The Water Cycle Information

Pathway of Movement-The water cycle is the movement of water that is on, in, and above the Earth. The clouds absorb lots of water that is in the air by evaporating. After the clouds evaporate the water, the clouds move to land and release the amount of water the clouds absorbed. For example, 86% of water evaporation comes from the ocean. The Water cycle has been doing this for billion years. The Earth and life are depending on the clouds to continue to work on the cycle because the Earth would be dry and no one on Earth would survive.

Chemical Reactions Involved-Water is made of H2O (Hydrogen and Oxygen).

The water that is on Earth comes from the magma that was mixed together with the rocks that are really hot. The water was set free by the lava so the atmosphere could cool off from the heat. The water cycle is also known as the hydro logic cycle.

Inorganic reservoirs-Things that were not made my nature like Iron, Fluoride, Chloride, Sulfate, and Manganese.

Organic Reservoirs-Things that were made by nature like Carbon, Vegetation roots, Microorganism, and plants from soil.

The Human Impact-Global warming has a big impact on the water cycle because the warm air causes evaporation and warm air holds water. We affect Global warming because of different types of gas that is sent to the sky causing cold places to become warmer. We also cause plants and grass to die because of the fumes from the air and acid rain from the clouds. The acid rain is caused by the combination of Sulfur Dioxide and nitrogen that was sent in the clouds. Humans use 8% of renewable water.
