Answer:

Evaporation
Condensation (Storage)
Precipitation
Percolation (Infiltration)
Sublimation
Transpiration (Evapotranspiration)

Explanation:

Evaporation - is the process of water escaping from the surface of a body of water into the atmosphere.

Condensation (Storage) - is the process by which water molecules gather from evaporated gas into stored water in clouds, or precipitation into collecting bodies of water

Precipitation - is the process of collected water in the clouds returning to the earth's surface in rain, sleet, snow....

Percolation (Infiltration) - is the process that allows water on the earth's surface to seep into the earth's crust and become ground water.

Sublimation - is the process that allows solid water in the form of ice to escape as gas without turning into liquid water.

Transpiration (Evapotranspiration) - is the process that allows water released from the process of photosynthesis in plants to be released into the environment.
