The water cycle

The water forms clouds which produce rain or snow and the water returns to the land, where plants and animals use it. The water passes through the vegetation and the soil, always moving in a downward direction. It collects in rivers and finally in the oceans, where the process starts again.

THE WATER CYCLE

The water cycle describes the continuous movement of water on, above and below the surface of the Earth.The sun changes the water in oceans and rivers from its usual liquid form to a gas. This process is called evaporation.

How is climate change impacting the water cycle?

Science has shown that climate change touches every corner of our planet's ecosystem, and the water cycle is no exception. Climate change intensifies this cycle because as air temperatures increase, more water evaporates into the air. Warmer air can hold more water vapor, which can lead to more intense rainstorms.
