is the water in the ocean evaporates into the atmosphere forming clouds. That process is called condensation. After the condensation process the water then is released back to the earth during the precipitation process by means of rain, snow, or hail. The rain snow or hail moisture is then either transpired or evaporated back into the air. If the moisture is not evaporated or transpired it will be infiltrated into the ground and will be called ground water. Finally that water will return to the sea through surface run off. And then the hydrologic cycle will start all over again. This cycle affects the earth’s weather because the earth rotates on an axis and with this varying cycle the climate will change. As the earth rotates on the axis we get different seasons on some parts of the planet. Some places will have the four varying season and some will have the same weather patterns all year long. B. Yes scientists do believe that the climate change is responsible for the extreme weather we are having. Not only do the scientists believe this but I do as well. Living in Massachusetts we have been experiencing some really strange weather patterns. With the strange out of the blue tornado in June of 2011 to the effects of severe microburst in July of 2011 and the icing to the weird weather was a massive snow ice storm towards the end of October of 2011 that caused massive power outages for at least 9 days.

    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.
