Abstract: More than three-fourths of the global water cycle consists of the annual rainfall and evaporation freshwater exchange between the ocean and atmosphere. water is fundamental to all life and key to modern civilization as we know it. Yet, when we assess what we actually know about the water cycle, we find great holes in our knowledge because a vast part of the water cycle occurs, unmonitored, over the global ocean. Many of us have studied water cycle during our primary education as an example of law of conservation in conjunction with the hydro-electric power plants. While studying this example we have been explained how the water at sea level gains kinetic energy which is then converted to potential energy in the clouds. This Potential energy is converted to kinetic energy in the form of rain, which gains potential energy when stored in dam. The stored water having some potential energy is then converted to kinetic energy and then to the electrical energy. In this paper, we are presenting an alternative analysis of the water cycle. From which we can clearly conclude that the law of conservation of energy has exception and the things that we have studied for decades and may be centuries, should be given another thought.
