This is also known as the hydrologic cycle or the H2O cycle, describes the continuous movement of water on, above and below Earth's surface.
Water as liquid turns to gas
When water is heated by the sun, the water goes up and turns into vapor.
Liquid state changes to gas state.
Water vapor turns to liquid water droplets in the air and creates clouds.
When water changes from gas phase to liquid phase.
When water vapor in the sky condenses and falls to the land.
Forms of precipitation are rain, snow, hail, fog,drip, graupel, and sleet.
When water after landing in the earth surface flows, it maybe seep into the ground, may flow into bodies of water or stored into reservoirs.
PrecipitationCondensed water vapor that falls to the Earth' s surface . Most precipitation occurs as rain, but also includes snow, hail, fog drip, graupel, and sleet. Approximately 505,000 km3 (121,000 cu mi) of water falls as precipitation each year, 398,000 km3 (95,000 cu mi) of it over the oceans. The rain on land contains 107,000 km3 (26,000 cu mi) of water per year and a snowing only 1,000 km3 (240 cu mi). 78% of global precipitation occurs over the ocean.Canopy interceptionThe precipitation that is intercepted by plant foliage, eventually evaporates back to the atmosphere rather than falling to the ground. SnowmeltThe runoff produced by melting snow.RunoffThe variety of ways by which water moves across the land. This includes both surface runoff and channel runoff. As it flows, the water may seep into the ground, evaporate into the air, become stored in lakes or reservoirs, or be extracted for agricultural or other human uses.InfiltrationThe flow of water from the ground surface into the ground. Once infiltrated, the water becomes soil moisture or groundwater.Subsurface flowThe flow of water underground, in the vadose zone and aquifers. Subsurface water may return to the surface (e.g. as a spring or by being pumped) or eventually seep into the oceans. Water returns to the land surface at lower elevation than where it infiltrated, under the force of gravity or gravity induced pressures. Groundwater tends to move slowly, and is replenished slowly, so it can remain in aquifers for thousands of years.EvaporationThe transformation of water from liquid to gas phases as it moves from the ground or bodies of water into the overlying atmosphere. The source of energy for evaporation is primarily solar radiation. Evaporation often implicitly includes transpiration from plants, though together they are specifically referred to as evapotranspiration. Total annual evapotranspiration amounts to approximately 505,000 km3 (121,000 cu mi) of water, 434,000 km3 (104,000 cu mi) of which evap orates from the oceans. 86% of global evaporation occurs over the ocean.SublimationThe state change directly from solid water (snow or ice) to water vapor.DepositionThis refers to changing of water vapor directly to ice.AdvectionThe movement of water — in solid, liquid, or vapor states — through the atmosphere. Without advection, water that evaporated over the oceans could not precipitate over land.CondensationThe transformation of water vapor to liquid water droplets in the air, creating clouds and fog.TranspirationThe release of water vapor from plants and soil into the air. Water vapor is a gas that cannot be seen.PercolationWater flows vertically through the soil and rocks under the influence of gravityPlate tectonics
These are the other processes of water cycle:
This is a precipitation that is intercepted by plant foliage, then evaporates back to the atmosphere instead of falling to the ground.
Type of runoff produced by melting of snow.
The flow of water from the land surface into the ground. Then the water becomes soil moisture or groundwater.
When solid water like snow or ice change to water vapor.
When water vapor directly change to ice.
Water are seep in by the soil and rocks under the influence of gravity
The release of water vapor from plants and from the soil into the air.
Water that enters the mantle through the subduction of oceanic crust. Water returns to the surface through volcanic activity.
The movement of water in atmosphere in the form of solid, liquid, or vapor With advection, water that evaporated over the oceans precipitates over land.
The flow of water underneath the ground. This water may return to the surface or eventually seep into the oceans. Water then returns to the land surface at lower elevation where it will be moved under the force of gravity Groundwater moves slowly, and is replenished slowly through time therefore, it can remain in aquifers for thousands of years.
THAT'S WRAP UP THE WATER CYCLE
