What moves through the water cycle?
Water in different phases moves through the atmosphere (transportation). Liquid water flows across land (runoff), into the ground (infiltration and percolation), and through the ground (groundwater). Groundwater moves into plants (plant uptake) and evaporates from plants into the atmosphere (transpiration).
What are the 4 main processes of the water cycle?
There are four main stages in the water cycle. They are evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. Let’s look at each of these stages. Evaporation: This is when warmth from the sun causes water from oceans, lakes, streams, ice and soils to rise into the air and turn into water vapour (gas).
How does water move through the cycle of matter?
You are a molecule of water. Choose a starting point in the water cycle and describe the process you would go through to move through the entire cycle. The water molecule in the lake evaporates. The water molecule cools and undergoes condensation. The water droplet increases in size, then falls to the Earth in the form of precipitation.
Which is correctly pairs a step of the water cycle with its events?
Which of the following correctly pairs a step of the water cycle with its events? Which of the following best describes the importance of biogeochemical cycles? They show how certain elements and compounds move through the environment and are continually used and recycled. Nice work!
How does the biogeochemical cycle move through the Earth?
This biogeochemical cycle moves through the rocks, water bodies and living systems. Sulphur is released into the atmosphere by the weathering of rocks and is converted into sulphates. These sulphates are taken up by the microorganisms and plants and converted into organic forms.
How does the Earth’s natural water cycle work?
Water moves underground downward and sideways, in great quantities, due to gravity and pressure. Eventually it emerges back to the land surface, into rivers, and into the oceans to keep the water cycle going. Note: This section of the Water Science School discusses the Earth’s “natural” water cycle without human interference.
