Hydrology strand

S6E3. Students will recognize the significant role of water in earth processes.

Ground Water: Fresh Water beneath the surface of the earth
Precipitation: fresh Water falling to the earth as a liquid (rain) or a solid (snow, hail)
Condensation: The process by which water vapor in the air cools to form tiny droplets of water in the clouds
Hydrologic cycle: the never-ending movement of water through the atmosphere, ground and back again;
Transpiration: the process in which some water within plants evaporates into the atmosphere. Water is first absorbed by the plant's roots, then later exits by evaporating through pores in the plant
infiltration (percolation): the process by which water seeps into the soil
Oceans: Salt water that stores most of the Earth’s water. Over 70% of the Earth’s surface is ocean;
Evaporation: occurs when the sun heats water up and it becomes vapor in the air
Fresh water Found in streams, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, groundwater and swamps.
Sun energy Drives the water cycle
Water vapor Water in the gas state
