3 Evaporation the process of changing water from a liquid to a gas occurs when water on Earth is heated by the Sun
4 6. Condensationthe process of changing water vapor (gas) back into liquidoccurs when water vapor cools as it gets higher in the atmospherethis is what makes clouds
5 1. Precipitation 3. Collection liquid water falls from clouds back to Earthcan be in the form of rain, snow, sleet, or hail3. Collectionoceans and lakes collect water that has fallenstays in collection until evaporation occurs
6 2. Runoffwater that flows down a mountain in a river or a stream, or off a surface into a collection source5.Ground Waterwater located beneath the Earth’s surfacecan come to the surface through springs
7 4. InfiltrationThe movement of water through the soil into aquifers undergroundAn aquifer is a large body of groundwater that can be extracted and used
8 7. Transpirationthe process by which moisture is carried through plants from roots to small pores on the underside of leaves, where it changes to vapor and is released into the atmosphere
9 9. Water SourceBody of water that heats up and begins the process of evaporation.Lake, river, ocean, etc.
