National Geographic - Ties that Bind

Water is weird — thanks to the hydrogen bond. Just because water is everywhere — percolating through the ground, hovering in clouds, sloshing around our cells — doesn't make it any less weird.

USGS Water Resources

USGS - The Water Cycle

Earth's water is always in movement, and the natural water cycle, also known as the hydrologic cycle, describes the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. Water is always changing states between liquid, vapor, and ice, with these processes happening in the blink of an eye and over millions of years.
