        Water Cycle Animation | Clue into Climate

        These animation sequences are simulations and are not meant to represent a specific region. The climate change-induced scenarios depicted are designed to illustrate changes to the water cycle that may occur over many years. These changes are dependent on location, human impact and many other factors. 

        Water Cycle | QUEST: Clue into Climate

        The water cycle is a critical part of life on earth. All people and organisms depend on the water cycle.

        Decreased Precipitation | QUEST: Clue into Climate

        In some environments, especially those with limited open water, increased evaporation and transpiration dries out the ground leaving less water to move to the atmosphere, fewer clouds, and less precipitation.
