JORGEWater cycle 8

JORGEWater cycle and layers of the earth science 8th grade

Ground water Water that fills the cracks and space in underground soil and rock layers
Water cycle The continual movement of water among earths atmosphere oceans and land surface through evaporation condensation and precipitation
Evaporation The process by which molecules at the surface of a liquid absorb enough energy to change to a gas
Transpiration The process by which water is lost through a plants leaves
Sublimation The change is n state from a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state
Precipitation Any form of water that falls from clouds and reaches earths surface as rain, snow, sleet or hail
Inflitration The process by which rainwater seeps through soil into groundwater
Percolation The movement of water through the openings in rocks or soil
Evapotranspiration The process by which water is transferred from the land to the atmosphere by evaporation from the soil and other surfaces and by transpiration from plants
Collection/refill The process by which water gathers back into bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, and oceans
Run-off Water that flows over the ground surface rather than soak into the ground
Condensation The change in state from a gas to a liquid
Atmosphere Earths air which is made up of a thin layer of gases, solids , and liquids; forms a protective layer around the planet
Troposphere Layer of earths atmosphere that is closer to the ground and contains 99% of water vapor 75% of the atmospheric gas where clouds and weather occur
Ionosphere Layer of electrically charged particles that in the atmosphere tha absorbs AM radio waves during the day and reflects them back at night
Ozone layer Layer of the stratosphere with a high concentration of ozone;absorbs most of the Suns harmful ultra violent rays
Ultra violent radiation A type of energy that comes from the earths sun, can damage skin and cause cancer
Chlorofluorocarbons Group of chemical compounds used in refrigerators, conditioners, foam packaging and aerosol sprays that may enter the atmosphere and destroy the ozone
Radiation Energy transferred by waves or rays
Conduction Transfers energy that occurs when molecules bump into eacgother
Convection transfer of energy by the flow of material
Hydrosphere All the water on earths surface
Coriolis Effect Causes moving air and water to turn left in the Southern Hemisphere and turn right in. In the Northern Hemisphere due to earths rotation
Jet stream Narrow belt of strong winds that blow near the top of the troposphere bve the wa
Sea breeze Movement of air from sea to land during the day when cooler air come see rom then water
Land breeze Movement of air from land to sea at night
