The lithosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere all correlate with each other to create one or both cycles. The two cycles are hydrologic cycle and the water cycle. The water as well as other materials is consistently being cycled among these four spheres. Due to the sun’s energy, water evaporates from the water source into the atmosphere. When the evaporated water condenses, this then forms clouds. The water is then returned by precipitation, which includes hail, snow, rain, or sleep. Evaporation and transpiration will permit a small amount of water to return back into the atmosphere. While some of the water infiltrates into the ground to join the water reservoir system. At this point, there is a chance that the water could be locked into the lithosphere and then

Unformatted text preview: causing hydrous materials to form. Some water, known as surface runoff, will flow back into the sea. Humans as well as the biosphere capture only a small amount of this water. The hydrologic cycle is very important to the Earths wellbeing and existence. Without this cycle nothing could even live. Trees, animals, and humans would all eventually die. The rivers, lakes, and eventually oceans would dry up. Many jobs would be in jeopardy as well. Hydro-powered electricity and crops could not get water needed if it did not rain. This would create and mass hysteria including no electricity and starvation....
