This site provides information about precipitation, evaporation, condensation, surface runoff, infiltration and transpiration, which are all part of the water cycle, a complex process that not only gives us water to drink and fish to eat, but also weather patterns that help grow our crops. The site has four sections. The introduction presents the overall concept while the second section covers each of the six parts of the cycle in detail. In the third part, The Cycle, the dynamic process is stressed and a diagram is included. Cloud Formation is the final section and it covers factors that control the size and shape of clouds such as heat, seasons, mountain ranges, bodies of water, volcanic eruptions, and even global warming. In addition, cloud nomenclature is discussed with an explanation of the advent of such cloud names as cumulonimbus, nimbostratus, cirrocumulus, and altostratus.
