The water cycle is the continuous movement of water between the atm kmoosphere, the land, and the oceans
Evaporation is the process by which liquid water is heated by the sun and then rises into the atmosphere as water vapor. Water continually evaporates from Earth’s oceans, lakes, streams, and soil, but the majority of the water evaporates from the oceans
Condensation, water vapor forms water droplets on dust particles. These water droplets form clouds, in which the droplets collide, stick together, and create larger, heavier droplets
These larger droplets fall from clouds as rain in a process called precipitation. Precipitation may also take the form of snow, sleet, or hail.
