Clues

  • an area of land where water is collected from (9, 4)
  • condensation of atmospheric water vapour that reaches the Earth's surface in any solid or liquid form (13)
  • movement of water through the pore spaces in rock (11, 4)
  • precipitation that doesn't reach the ground because it lands on vegetation (12)
  • property of water, it expands instead of contracting when temperature goes from 4 degrees Centigrade to 0 degrees Centigrade and becomes less dense (9, 9)
  • the average length of time that a molecule remains in a reservoir (9, 4)
  • the diffusion of water through a partially permeable membrane from an area of low concentration to an area of high concentration (7, 7)
  • the process which plants lose water vapour, mainly from the stomata of their leaves (13)
  • the process by which surface water enters the ground between the particles of soil or rock (12)
  • the volume of material moved from one reservoir to another (8, 4)
