Hydrologic cycle- the movement of water between and within the atmosphere and earth is this. It is a continuous series of processes that happen at the same time. Transpiration- transfer of water to the atmosphere by vegetation, mostly by water evaporating and escaping plant tissues through leaf pores. Evapotranspiration- the combined process of evaporation and transpiration; the delivery of water to the atmosphere by vegetation and by direct evaporation from wet surfaces. The shortest route of the hydrolic cycle is from the ocean and back to the ocean . Liquid water on the ground travels through infiltration. Saturated- air that contains as much water as possible. Condensation- water vapor molecules randomly collide with the water surface and bond with adjacent molecules. Sublimation- change from a solid into a vapor without passing through the liquid phase. Deposition- change form the vapor phase to the solid phase (frost) this releases the energy of vaporization and fusion.
