individual water molecules can come and go.also known as the water cycle Or the H2O cycle  It describes the continuous movement of water on. in and out of the atmosphere . above and below the surface of the Earth  Although the balance of water on Earth remains fairly constant over time.

Where is all the Earth’s water?  To be found in the natural environment and is the source of all life on earth. Water covers 70% of the earth’s surface . .

.

How does the Hydrological Cycle work?  The stages of the cycle are:  Evaporation  Transport  Condensation  Precipitation  Groundwater  Run-off .

 Transport. The movement of water through the atmosphere. is called transport . specifically from over the oceans to over land. Evaporation. the process by which water changes from a liquid to a gas. Water is transferred from the surface to the atmosphere through evaporation.

 Precipitation . forming tiny droplets in clouds. The primary mechanism for transporting water from the atmosphere to the surface of the earth is precipitation. Condensation . .The transported water vapor eventually condenses.

Most of the water which returns to land flows downhill as run-off . lakes. Groundwater .rivers. Some of the precipitation soak into the ground and this is the main source of the formation of the waters found on land .  Run-off . groundwater and glaciers.
