Detailed Description

Condensation image from the  Water Cycle Processes poster in 'Where's the Water?" poster series. The water cycle describes how water moves from Earth’s surface into the atmosphere, then back to the surface again or to below Earth’s surface. This educational poster depicts five key water-cycle processes that transport or transform water between states: evaporation, transpiration, condensation, precipitation, and infiltration. It illustrates examples of natural and human interactions with these processes. This poster is intended for eighth-grade audiences.
