The diagram illustrates the hydrological cycle by which water moves through our natural environment.  Overall, there are several stages to the process involving evaporation, precipitation and the final return of water to the ocean where the process begins over.

Since 80% of all water begins in the ocean, most water originates from this source.  Initially sea water is warmed by the sun, causing it to evaporate into the air becoming water vapor.  This then rises to condense into clouds at a higher elevation, which are then then pushed by the wind over land where it condenses further and precipitation occurs, falling as either snow or rain.

After precipitation on land, water then takes one of three routes.  Some of it may fall into lakes or return to the ocean as surface runoff.  Still further water percolates underground to an impermeable layer where it again flows back to the sea.   Salt water also intrudes from the ocean into the land in coastal areas.

Step 1: Analyzing question

Make a Plan: (3-4 mins)

Overall

Hydrological cycle = water moves through our natural environment

Several stages, evaporation, to return of water to ocean

Evaporation to precipitation

80%of water begins in book

Evaporation rising condense carried by the wind

Return to ocean

Three routes to the ocean

  1. Directly falls into lakes and rivers
  2. Percolation through ground
  3. Salt water intrusion
