I also run off of surfaces outdoors.
All these things I'm apart of is called the Water Cycle!
I'm evaporation, precipitation, infiltration, condensation, transpiration and run off.
Evaporation and transpiration occurs first. The sun heats me up and I become gas! And plants release water. Here I am a part of a river turning into gas.
Condensation occurs next. Water vapor cools and changes back into liquid. So I'm a cloud now! See the pointer pointing at the new me?
Precipitation happens next! That means I let go of all the water in my clouds as rain, snow, sleet,or hail. It falls where ever I'm most heavy.
