The water cycle - my first animated video on Dreamstime

The Water CycleWater or hydrological cycle reflects continuous and neverending movement of water in the nature. The water moves and changes its form during the processes of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, infiltration, surface runoff, and subsurface flow. These transformations also involves the exchange of energy. One of the side effects of water cycle can be the re-shaping the surface of the Earth.  continue reading

Beauty and the beast - a story about waves
