Phases of the Water Cycle
This storyboard does not have a description.
Evaporation is the first process of the water cycle. Furthermore, it's the process where water changes to a gas. The H20 molecules gain energy, and therefore the surroundings lose energy. Therefore, this results in a cooling effect.
Look at me! I'm evaporating!
Time to lose my energy and become one with the cloud!
The next phase is condensation. This is the stage where water turns from a gas to a liquid . Water molecules eventually lose their energy and cause surroundings to gain energy (warming effect).
Woohoo! Me and my buddies are having a blast so far, yipee!
This stage is known as precipitation. In this phase, water descends in the atmosphere, as a liquid or solid, in forms of rain, snow, sleet, or hail.
The fourth process is known as a run-off. This is where H20 liquid flows on the surface, without descending into it. These are known as impervious surfaces.
Is it me, or does this free water-ride never end?
What is inside this dirt. Wait, is that a worm I see?
The last phase is known to be infiltration. This is the process by which water will descend into the surface if it allows. This occurs on permeable surfaces.
Thanks for seeing this comic!
Well, it looks like the adventure ends here. However, there might be another one soon, I hope. See you next time!
