A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as the outflow of a reservoir, mouth of a bay, or any point along a stream channel. The word watershed is sometimes used interchangeably with drainage basin or catchment. Ridges and hills that separate two watersheds are called the drainage divide. The watershed consists of surface water--lakes, streams, reservoirs, and wetlands--and all the underlying ground water.

Water Cycle Transfer Processes

Evaporation: water movement from a liquid to a gas (water vapor)

Condensation: water vapor (gas) condensing to form a liquid or a solid

Precipitation: forms when water vapor in the air cools down and condenses. When enough molecules group together gravity will pull them back down to the ground. (rain, snow, sleet, hail, etc.)

Accumulation: when a liquid / solid water gathers together in one place. (Lakes, rivers, oceans, puddles, glaciers, etc.)

Sublimation: when water goes from a solid form straight to a gas

Transpiration: when water is taken up from the soil into the roots of plants, transported through the plant and evaporates out tiny openings in the leaves.

Infiltration: when water moves from the surface of the planet, through the soil and into groundwater

Water Analysts have said that the next World War will be fought over access to clean, fresh Water. What do you think?
