Nutrient Cycle or Biogeochemical Cycle. Nutrients,atoms,ions,and molecules are continously cycled.
Hydrologic Cycle or Water Cycle. Collects,Purifies,and Distributes the Earth's water. Also can be looked at as a cycle of natural renewal of water quality. Differs from other nutrient cycles due to the fact that most of the water stays chemically unchanged & is transformed from one physi
Evaporation Conversion of water to water vapor.
Transpiration Evaporation from plant leaves after water is extracted from soil by roots & transported through the plant.
Condensation Conversion of water vapor into liquid water.
Precipitation Rain,Sleet,Hail,and Snow.
Infiltration Movement of water into the soil.
Perculation Downward flow of water through soil and permeable rock formations to groundwater storage called aquifers.
Runoff Surface movement down slopes to the sea to resume the cycle.
The Ocean and rest by land. 84% of water vapor in the atmosphere comes from...3/4 of the earth is covered by water.
Condensation Nuclei. Necessary for precipitation to occur. They are tiny particles on which droplets of water vapor can collect.Ex. Volcanic ash, soil dust,smoke,sea salts, and particulate matter emmitted by factories, coal burning power plants,and motor vehicles.
Glaciers 1/10 of the freshwater returning to the Earth's surface as precipitation becomes locked up in slowly flowing ice and snow.
Surface Runoff Most precipitation falls on terrestrial ecosystems.
