Water: visible and invisible On earth, water is found as a liquid, as a solid (ice) or as a gas (water vapour ... Water vapour forms a kind of global "blanket" which helps to keep the earth warm. Heat radiated from the sun-warmed surface of the earth is absorbed and held by the vapour. Water ...

Freshwater Website: Properties of water (The hydrologic cycle)
Transpiration: Water vapour is also emitted from plant leaves by a process called transpiration. Every day an actively growing plant transpires 5 to 10 times as much water as it can hold at once. Condensation: As water vapour rises, it cools and eventually condenses,usually on tiny particles of ... More from this site
