The process of which it is turning into a gas from a liquid.
It is when a vapor or a gas turns into a liquid.
This is when moisture is carried through plants from roots to small pores on the leaves. When it gets to the leaves, it changes from a vapor and is then released into the atmosphere. Evaporation of water from leaves.
The freezing point of the water.
It is to make or liquefied by the strong heat.
This is a process which is where a solid turns into a gas without turning into a liquid.
Is a solid or a liquid falling from the sky such as rain, sleet, snow, hail.
This is the draining of water from the surface of an area such as buildings.
It is the internal energy caused by kinetic energy of its atoms or molecules. Hotter molecules/atoms have a better kinetic energy than the cold ones. It's in the form of vibrational, rotational, in the case of a gas, and lastly transitional.
The degree or heat intensity of the heat presents or a substance. It is expressed as a comparative scale and shoes on a thermometer.
Is the potential energy associated with the gravitational field.
It is a process which precipitation and or water soaks into the subsurface soils and moves into rocks through the cracks and also the pore spaces.
The process of which one thing is absorbed into another.
Eliminating or expelling waste matter.
The impact on biophysical environments, biodiversity, and other resources.
All the waters on the earth's surface such as lakes, seas, and only sometimes it includes water over the earth's surface such as clouds.
Any of the spherical concentric regions of matter that make up the earth's atmosphere, lithosphere, and lastly hydrosphere.
The gasses surrounding the earth or another planet.
Regions of the surface, atmosphere, and hydrosphere of the earth and also occupied by living organisms.
A gas that contributes to the greenhouse effect by absorbing infrared radiation.
The trapping of the sun's warmth on a planets lower atmosphere due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere the visible radiation.
Radiant energy emitted by the sun in the electromagnetic energy. Almost half of the radiation is visible in the short wave part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Other half is in the near infrared part.
Weather conditions in an area in a general or over just a long period of time
A directed movement of seawater by forces upon a flow such as waves, Coriolis effect, and wind. The tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon.
A rise in seawater or other liquids.
A not regular series of climate changes affected by the equatorial Pacific region. Characterized by the appearance of unusually warm and poor water.
Cooling of the water in the Pacific region at irregular intervals which is associated with a huge widespread of weather changes like in an El Nino but less damaging.
A mass which is rotating and moving from system experience forces. It acts perpendicular to which direction it's going and also to the axis of the rotation. It tends to deflect moving objects as well.
A breeze blowing toward the sea from the land and warming the sea.
A breeze blowing toward the land from the sea, making the land warm.
Body of air with a uniform temperature, humidity, and pressure.
A degree of compactness
Most northern or most southern place or point on the planet, especially earth.
A body or a surface of light and heat
