In order, the steps of the water cycle are evaporation, condensation, sublimation, precipitation, transpiration, runoff and infiltration. Together, all of the steps help regulate the Earth’s water supply and climate. More »

The water, or hydrologic, cycle has only a few basic steps, beginning with evaporation of the water in rivers, lakes and oceans into water vapor, which then condenses into clouds. When enough water vapor condenses in the... More » Science Weather & Tides Rain

The water cycle has no definitive starting point, but the majority of the earth's water exists in the ocean. Therefore, many diagrams or explanations of the water cycle begin there. The stages of the water cycle include ... More » Science Earth Science

Bodies of water on Earth are maintained by the atmosphere keeping the water cycle of evaporation, condensation and precipitation functioning so that water can be replenished. Also, the gravitational pull of the Earth kee... More »

The first three parts of the water cycle are evaporation, condensation and precipitation. The next three stages of the six-part cycle are surface runoff, infiltration and transpiration. More »

The water cycle is responsible for distributing water across the earth through evaporation, condensation and precipitation, a process that is vital for sustaining life on earth by providing water to plants, animals and h... More »

The main stages of the water cycle are evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. The stages of the water cycle work together in a continuous process of recycling Earth's water supply. More »
