Science Weather #2
Terms in this set (12)
When water moves all around the earth. Water evaporates from the oceans into water vapor. Water vapor in the atmosphere condenses to form the tiny water droplets in clouds. Clouds release the water, and it falls back to earth as rain, snow, or hail. This movement is the water cycle. Heat from the sun drives the water cycle. This cycle is critical for the climates around the world, without it climates would be very different.
Water can be found on the earth as a liquid, solid, and a gas.
Sometimes water is frozen solid and falls to the earth as snow, ice, or hail.
water is in the form of a liquid when it is raining or flows in a river or in the ocean.

Water vapor turns back into a liquid. This often occurs in the sky, when water vapor condenses into tiny water droplets and forms clouds.
Water goes from a solid to a liquid.
Water goes from a liquid to a solid.
When water is a gas.
large collections of water, usually in the form of tiny droplets of liquid and solid water. When these droplets become too heavy for air currents to hold them up, they fall down to earth as rain, snow or hail.
is the word meteorologists use to describe the amount of water vapor in the air.
