Essential Question How does water move around Earth’s atmosphere and lithosphere (ground)? ?
Water Vapor (Gas) Water vapor moves into the atmosphere two ways: Evaporation: Water is heated (usually by the sun), changed to a gas & rises into Earth’s atmosphere. Transpiration: Plants give off water vapor through their leaves
You can see where the water used to be. Where did it go?
Liquid Water - Condensation Water vapor cools & turns back into liquid. Those water droplets join together to make clouds. Two types: Depends on temperature – Dew: Water vapor condenses right on a surface – Frost: Water vapor goes straight from a gas to ice crystals, a solid.
