The hydrologic cycle begins with the evaporation of water from the surface of the ocean. As moist air is lifted, it cools and water vapor condenses to form clouds. Moisture is transported around the globe until it returns to the surface as precipitation.

The sequence of conditions through which water passes from vapor in the atmosphere through precipitation upon land or water surfaces and ultimately back into the atmosphere as a result of evaporation and transpiration — called also hydrological cycle.

Water cycle, also called hydrologic cycle, cycle that involves the continuous circulation of water in the Earth-atmosphere system. Of the many processes involved in the water cycle, the most important are evaporation, transpiration, condensation, precipitation, and runoff

The hydrologic cycle is the other name for the water cycle. It comprises of water evaporating from earth, becoming clouds and then again shifting back to the earth as rain and snow. This maintains the water content of the earth and influences rainfalls and waters in the streams and rivers. It starts with water evaporating from the lake, which forms clouds in the sky. This then results in rain elsewhere.

The water then seeps into the soil and bedrock as well as water flowing through creeks and streams following a rainstorm. However, there is no mention of the calcium carbonate in the soil water and groundwater. This natural process often results in erosion of the soil, but is not part of the hydrologic cycle.
