Which of the following is a true statement about the water cycle? Some of the water in the deepest parts of the ocean never becomes part of the water cycle. Sometimes the water cycle is very fast, circulating the water in all the oceans in under 100 years. Due to mixing and oceanic gyres, even very deep water is part of the water cycle. Water molecules are either part of the land system of mountains, rivers, and lakes, or part of the ocean system, and do not travel from one to the other.

    Important Points to Remember About the Water Cycle: Three phases in the water cycle are evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. These keep water moving in a continuous process through the atmosphere, living organisms, the soil, and bodies of water. Water leaves plants through the process of transpiration. El Niño is a weather phenomenon that temporarily changes the climate of the southern Pacific Ocean and the countries that border it. Important Points to Remember About the Nitrogen Cycle: Nitrogen, a limiting nutrient, needs to be moved through the environment, but in its gaseous atmospheric state it cannot be used by most organisms. Special nitrogen-fixing bacteria convert nitrogen to usable forms. The steps in the nitrogen cycle include nitrogen fixation, nitrification, denitrification, and decay of organisms. Sewage can cause eutrophication of bodies of water needed by humans. Important Points to Remember About the Carbon Cycle: Carbon is moved in a cycle among the atmosphere, fossil fuels, rocks and soil, shells and skeletons, bodies of water, and plants and trees. These are called sinks. Photosynthesis and cellular respiration move carbon from carbon dioxide to glucose and back again. All organisms perform respiration; only producers perform photosynthesis. Decomposition, compaction, transformation, diffusion, shell formation, and ocean circulation are processes that move carbon. Combustion and deforestation are human processes that disrupt the carbon cycle.

    What causes it? Usually, the wind blows strongly from east to west along the equator in the Pacific. This actually piles up water (about half a meter's worth) in the western part of the Pacific. In the eastern part, deeper water (which is colder than the sun-warmed surface water) gets pulled up from below to replace the water pushed west. So, the normal situation is warm water (about 30°C) in the west, and cold (about 22°C) in the east. In an El Niño, the winds pushing that water around get weaker. As a result, some of the warm water piled up in the west slumps back down to the east, and not as much cold water gets pulled up from below. Both these tend to make the water in the eastern Pacific warmer, which is one of the hallmarks of an El Niño. But it doesn't stop there. The warmer ocean then affects the winds--it makes the winds weaker! So if the winds get weaker, then the ocean gets warmer, which makes the winds get weaker, which makes the ocean get warmer... this is called a positive feedback, and is what makes an El Niño grow.
