The water cycle is defined as how water moves between the ocean and other bodies of water, the land and the air. The sun causes water to evaporate from the ocean, lakes, and other bodies of water. The evaporated water vapor forms clouds; in the clouds, water droplets condense and eventually fall back to earth as rain or snow.
