the cycle of processes by which water circulates between the earth's water storages. (check other doc for more info.)
It effects every water storage areas. Which ones would you like to know more about?
hmmm... how about clouds and ground water.
What type of water storage are being effected by global warming?
When the water evaporates out of the ground and keeps getting baked, the water is evaporating so quickly that the soil hardens over, and when precipitation comes it flows over the hard soil instead of sinking in and runs of into lakes/rivers.
Warmer air can hold more water vapor so more liquid is going into the clouds than there normally is and causes intense rain storms.
Okay so thats how it effects clouds how is water storage in the ground effected?
The sun heats up the molecules in the ice so they start to move around faster. So they turn back to liquid and then when it heats up even more it turns to gas and evaporates into the air.
How does water get moved from a glacier back to the cloud?
When it gets to the atmosphere the air is colder so the gases energy slows down and turns into a liquid which then goes to a cloud.
What are humans doing to effect this and what can we do to help stop it?
Humans are releasing to much carbon into the air when we decide to burn fossil fuels.
By using different ways to get energy for example solar and wind power.
Thanks for teaching me about the water cycle and global warming, Bye!
