The Water Cycle
Water covers most of our planet. It can be found in
oceans, lakes, and ponds, and in the ground itself. The cycle
of water from liquid to vapor to solid is called the water
cycle. The water cycle is an exciting and continuous
process, with no beginning and no beginning or end. The
water cycle is the movement of water in the environment by
evaporation, condensation, and precipitation.
The warm sun causes liquid water to evaporate and rise
up into the sky. The water vapors that are formed cool
during evaporation . These cooled water vapors form clouds.
The transformation of the vapor into clouds is called
condensation. Clouds can be a mass of water droplets and
icy particles. When the clouds get heavy enough, the water
falls back to the ground in the form of rain, snow, or hail.
These are all forms of precipitation.
Thunderstorms are caused when a low, cold mass of air
rushes against a warm mass of air. The edge of a moving
cold air mass is called a cold front. A cold front pushes on
the warm air, causing it to rise quickly. As it rises, the warm
air cools quickly and its water condenses into clouds.
When air cools quickly it forms large water drops,
making thick, grey-black clouds. In addition, fast-moving air
collects static electricity. The lightning you see in a
thundercloud is this electricity jumping from cloud to cloud
or from cloud to the ground. Lightening warms the air really
fast, causing it to expand. This creates a type of explosion,
which you hear as thunder. When these clouds let go, lots
of rain falls over a small area. Usually the rain in a
thunderstorm lasts only a short time and then stops.
