Water Cycle
the cycle of processes by which water circulates between the earth's oceans, atmosphere, and land, involving precipitation as rain and snow, drainage in streams and rivers, and return to the atmosphere by evaporation and transpiration
permeation of a liquid into something by filtration.
The process of turning from liquid into vapor.
Condensation Condensation is Water that collects as droplets on a cold surface when humid air is in contact with it.
Transpiration Transpiration is the process where plants absorb water through the roots and then give off water vapor through pores in their leaves. Y
Precipitation Precipitation is water released from clouds in the form of rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow, or hail. It is the primary connection in the water cycle that provides for the delivery of atmospheric water to the Earth.
Groundwater Groundwater is the part that continues downward through the soil until it reaches rock material that is saturated is groundwater recharge.
Water table The level below which the ground is completely saturated with water. Also called water level .
Runoff Surface runoff is water, from rain, snowmelt, or other sources, that flows over the land
Artesian Well If water reaches the ground surface under the natural pressure of the aquifer, the well is called a flowing artesian well.
Aquifer A body of permeable rock that can contain or transmit groundwater.
Springs A spring is the result of an aquifer being filled to the point that the water overflows onto the land surface.
Zone of aeration The zone of aeration is the region between the earth's surface and the water table.
Zone of Saturation Zone of saturation, is the area in an aquifer, below the water table, in which relatively all pores and fractures are saturated with water.
Permeable (of a material or membrane) allowing liquids or gases to pass through it.
Permeable Not allowing liquids or gases to pass through it.
Porosity the small streams that come together to form a river.
