Biogeochemical Cycle - Water Cycle
- The water cycle or hydrological cycle is a continuous cycle where water evaporates, travels into the air and becomes part of a cloud, falls down to earth as precipitation, and then evaporates again. This repeats again and again in a never-ending cycle.
- Water cycle helps in the continuous circulation of water on, above and below the surface of the earth. It includes process like evaporation, condensation, and precipitation.
- Evaporation is the process by which the water from the water bodies changes into vapour due to continuous heat during the daytime.
- Condensation is the process by which the vapours turn into water droplets and cools down and forms clouds.
- Precipitation is the process by which the droplets of water further collects and fall on earth as rain.
Water cycleThe water cycle describes how water evaporates from the surface of the earth, rises into the atmosphere, cools and condenses into rain or snow in clouds, and falls again to the surface as precipitation.
IMPORTANCE OF WATER CYCLE :
The water cycle is an important process that recycles water and nutrients. In doing so, it brings freshwater to people, animals and plants all around the world.
