The actions on the intake and release side can be looked at separately. Together they determine the water balance.
The individual factors on the release side include: evaporation from plants, from the Earth's surface, from surface waters, from the sea, from factories, from people.
The outflow includes the outflow from surface waters into the sea and the outflow into the ground water. The intake side includes above all precipitation and the inflow from glaciers.

Information and ideas:
The interactive graphic can be used to round off work on the water cycle, as it takes a more detailed look at the intake and release sides separately from each other.
