The water cycle is all about storing water and moving water on, in, and above the Earth. Although the atmosphere may not be a great storehouse of water, it is the superhighway used to move water around the globe.

Evaporation and transpiration change liquid water into vapor, which ascends into the atmosphere due to rising air currents. Cooler temperatures aloft allow the vapor to condense into clouds and strong winds move the clouds around the world until the water falls as precipitation to replenish the earthbound parts of the water cycle. About 90 percent of water in the atmosphere is produced by evaporation from water bodies, while the other 10 percent comes from transpiration from plants.

Water is the only substance that can exist naturally in 3 forms: liquid (river), solid (ice, snow) and gaseous (water vapor).

On March 25, 2007 at 6:30 am I captured all three states. The location is the Lamoille River in Fairfax, Vermont. Look around and you will see snow, ice, clouds, river water and water vapor rising from the falls.
