Water continuously travels between Earth's surface and the atmosphere via the hydrologic cycle. Water is perpetually recycled through five main processes: condensation, precipitation, infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration. In this interactive resource adapted from NASA, explore the steps of the water cycle.
This media asset was adapted from the Hydrologic Cycle by NASA's Observatorium.
