Hydrologic Cycle: Aquafornia Water Word of the Week
Aquafornia’s Water Word of the Week from sister site Aquapedia is hydrologic cycle. As with all entries in the Water Education Foundation’s interactive online water encyclopedia, it has been researched and vetted by Foundation.
According to an excerpt from the Aquapedia definition, “Both surface water and groundwater are connected through the hydrologic cycle, essentially the life span of a drop of water. A drop of water can be birthed, say, by precipitation in the Sierra Nevada range — home to much of California’s runoff.”
The written definition is supplemented with a graphic and a video.
To learn more about the hydrologic cycle, Aquapedia lists additional resources to research. Among them are these from the Foundation: “Layperson’s Guide to California Water,” “Where Does California’s Water Come From?” and “California Watersheds: Our Vital Link.”
