  • I'm the sun I provide almost everything on Earth needs like energy, or heat.

  • Evaporation and heating
  • The sun starts to heat me up and causes the liquid and frozen water to evaporate into vapor gas, which rises high in the sky to form clouds. I'm one of the biggest processes is

  • Hi i'm Cloudy i'm a major part to the water cycle because it is responsible for the formation of clouds. These clouds may produce precipitation, which is the primary route for water to return to the Earth's surface. Condensation is the opposite of evaporation. This is called condensation

  • After the precipitation comes to the surface of Earth, it does one of four things. It can either be absorbed by plants, percolate through the soil to become ground water, run off the surface into streams and rivers becoming surface water and eventually flowing into the oceans, or evaporate.
  • Precipitation is water released from clouds in the form of rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow, or hail. It is the primary connection in the water cycle that provides for the delivery of atmospheric water to the Earth. Most precipitation falls as rain.

  • Groundwater is a part of the natural water cycle. Some part of the precipitation that lands on the ground surface infiltrates into the subsurface. Water in the saturated groundwater system moves slowly and may eventually discharge into streams, lakes, and oceans.
  • This is the loss of water from a plant in the form of water vapor. Water is absorbed by roots from the soil and transported as a liquid to the leaves. In the leaves, small pores allow water to escape as a vapor. Of all the water absorbed by plants, less than 5% remains in the plant for growth.
  • Oh no i'm starting to sweat from all the heat.
