Evapo-transpiration (water vapor enters the atmosphere)

–Evaporation from ground and water surfaces
–transpiration by plant leaves

Condensation

–Water changes state from vapor to liquid
–water vapor as it rises in the air, looses energy and cools down, and
then changes state into liquid or ice

Precipitation

–Water being released from clouds as rain, sleet, snow or hail
–Occurs when the condensed water becomes too heavy to remain in
the atmospheric

Infiltration and percolation

–The portion of precipitation seeping into the ground
–Interception, evaporation, stem flow and through flow
–Surface storage, soil moisture enrichment and evaporation
–Groundwater recharging

Runoff

–Surface runoff, interflow & groundwater flow (direct flow & base flow)
–Rainfall and snow and ice melt contribute water
–Sheet flow, concentrated shallow flow and channel flow
