Water Cycle VocabularyRusty Sturken Duluth Middle School Sixth Grade Earth Science
Water Cycle The continuous process by which water moves from Earth’s surface to the atmosphere and back, passing through the living and nonliving parts of the environment
Water Vapor (Water Vapor)Water Vapor is the invisible, gaseous form of water.
Water Vapor (Water Vapor)Make sure you understand that fog and clouds are NOT water vapor, they are made of tiny droplets of condensed water. WATER VAPOR IS INVISIBLE Photos by Rusty Sturken
Groundwater Water that fills the cracks and pores in underground soil and rock layers
Evaporation The process by which molecules at the surface of a liquid, such as water, absorb enough energy to change to a gaseous state, such as water vapor.
Transpiration The process by which plants release water vapor through their leaves
Condensation The process by which a gas, such as water vapor, changes to a liquid, such as water
Precipitation Forms of water, such as rain, snow, sleet or hail that fall from clouds and reach Earth’s surface
Irrigation The process of supplying water to areas of land to make them suitable for growing crops
Photosynthesis The process by which plants use water, plus carbon dioxide and energy from the sun, to make food
Watershed The land area that supplies water to a river system( think of “drainage basin”)
Levee A long ridge formed by deposits of sediments alongside a river channel
Reservoir A natural or artificial lake that stores water for human use.
Eutrophication The process by which nutrients in a lake build up over time, causing an increase in the growth of algae
Pores Tiny openings in and between particles of rock and soil that may contain air or water
Permeable Characteristic of materials such as sand and gravel that allow water to pass easily through them
Water Table The top of the saturated zone, or depth to the groundwater in an aquifer
Saturated Zone A layer of permeable rock or soil in which the cracks and pores are completely filled with water
Aquifer An underground layer of rock or soil that holds water
Spring A place where groundwater bubbles or flows out of cracks in the ground
Recharge New water that enters an aquifer from the surface
Artesian Well A well in which water rises because of pressure within the aquifer
WATER EVAPORATION: Stage of water cycle when water changes from liquid to vapor (or gas)

The Water Cycle Water is recycled through the water cycle.
Earth’s surface is covered mainly by water.
THE WATER CYCLE Water moves from the oceans to the atmosphere, from the atmosphere to the land, and from the land back to the oceans.
