Water cycle The continuous movement of water from the ocean to the atmosphere to the land and back to the ocean.
Water table The upper surface of underground water, the upper boundary of the zone of saturation
Aquifer A body of rock sediment that stores groundwater and allows the flow of groundwater.
Artesian spring A spring whose water flows from a crack in the cap rock over the aquifer
Evaporation Takes place when water from the oceans and the earths surface changes into water vapor. Energy from the sun causes evaporation. Water gains energy during evaporation.
Condensation Takes place when water vapor cools and changes into water droplets that form clouds in the atmosphere. Water loses energy during condensation.
Precipitation Is rain, sleet, snow, or hail that falls from clouds onto earths land and oceans.
Groundwater The water located within the rocks below the earths surface is called groundwater.
Porosity The percentage of the total volume of rock or sediment that consists of open surfaces
Permability The ability of a rock or sediment to let fluids pass, through its open spaces or pores
Impermeable A rock that stops the flow of water is called impermeable
Well A human-made hole that is deeper than the level of the water table is called a well
Zone Of aeration Rainwater passes through the upper zone called zone Of aeration
Zone of Saturation Farther down the water collects in an area called the zone of saturation
Is precipitation that flows over land into streams and rivers. This later enters oceans.
Percolation Is the downward movement of water through pores and other spaces in soil due to gravity.
Water releases from leaves then going into the air
