You see, in the desert we don't get much rain, so when we do we get to talk to Patrick. Look here he comes!
Hi, my name is Avery, Im with CNN and Im here in the desert.
Hi, I'm Patrick, and I like to throw people off cliffs.
Okay, lets just go over there, It looks like a nice place to start what we are going to do.
The reason I throw people off cliffs is because it gives me a reason to explain the water cycle, so here it goes
Okay, so we start with the rain going down to the Earth from the clouds in precipitation, then it lands on the Earth making puddles-like the one right here
The two ways it turns into clouds are, #1. evaporation, in which water from large bodies of water turn into gases or it will go into the ground as groundwater, and the sun heats the water and makes it evaporate. #2. transpiration, in which the water droplets from plants turn into gases and form clouds
Then it goes through the condensation process, in which it turns into a cloud. Sublimation is also in the water cycle which a solid goes into a gas without going through the liquid state. Deposition is were the water goes down some kind of hill and stuff.
