What is the main source of energy for the water cycle? What type of heat transfer does this provide?

The sun is the main source driving it: Sun heats water, water evaporates.

What type of heat transfer does it provide? I think that it is radiation, but I'm not completely sure.

    I hated heat transfer, so I can't help.
    Sorry.
