Hydrologic Cycle and the Influence It Has 2 The hydrologic cycle, also known as the water cycle, is the description of the transportation of water. The definition of the hydrologic cycle is “the sequence of conditions through which water passes from vapor in the atmosphere through precipitation upon land or water surfaces and ultimately back into the atmosphere as a result of evaporation and transportation” (The Merriam-Webster Dictionary, 2004). The influence that this cycle has on other natural disasters and bodies of water is amazing. There is an interrelationship between the hydrologic cycle, landslides, floods, and streams. Landslides can be influence to occur by another natural disaster like an earthquake. An earthquake occurring around mountain ranges can cause a landslide. In return, the landslide can block the flow of rivers, causing a flood. This one disaster can influence two more to occur.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
