Four major parts of the Hydrologic cycle 2. Evaporated water are condensed into clouds. – Condensed:to make more dense or compact; redu ce the volume or extent of; concentrate.
Four major parts of the Hydrologic Cycle 3. Water is returned to earth as precipitation(rain,snow,hail)
Four magor parts of the hydrologic Cycle 4. The precipition falls back on to earth. It is taking up by plants roots, Percolates into the soil to enter into ground water, falls back into rivers,lakes ect. And starts over from step1

Human Impacts Humans Can alter the hydrologic cycle by diverting water for drinking and irrigation. Also paving over land surfaces to build homes, and roads impacts the water cycle.
Review questions 1. What are some human impacts on the Hydrologic cycle? Explain how it effects it. 2.Describe the 2 nd step of the Hydrologic cycle include a visual. 3.Wjat do Hydrologic Mean? 4. Name 1 abiotic and 1 biotic component that contributes the hydrologic cycle? 5. Name 2 reasons why this Cycle is important to life on earth? 6.Name 2 places the water go after it has fallen to earth?
