What if the water never left the hydrosphere?
Simply so, can the biosphere exist without the hydrosphere?
The present atmosphere would not exist without the biosphere. For instance, plants (biosphere) grow in the ground (geosphere), but to survive they absorb water (hydrosphere) and carbon dioxide (atmosphere).
Similarly, what will happen if water disappear? All life (living) would die, if all the water from the earth, disappeared. The oceans would lie bare, covered by several inches to feet of salt. Without water vapour, the surface temperature would drop drastically and could go even below freezing temperatures.
Also to know is, why is the water cycle never ending?
The water cycle is a way that water moves all around the Earth. It never stops and doesn't really have a beginning or an end. Some water on the surface of the ocean will evaporate due to heat from the sun. When it evaporates it turns into vapor water and goes up into the atmosphere.
What would happen if the hydrosphere changed?
Human contributions to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are warming the earth's surface - a process which is projected to increase evaporation of surface water and accelerate the hydrologic cycle. In turn, a warmer atmosphere can hold more water vapor.
