Clouds & Water Cycle

What is Precipitation? After condensation, water droplets fall in various froms like rain, snow, freezing rain, sleet, and hail.
What is Evaporation? Only occurs when warm water is around and water eneters the atmosphere as water vapor.
What is Transipiration? Sun takes the water off the plant and water enters the atmosphere as water vapor.
What is Run-off? It adds to the flow and when precipitation falls on land surfaces, it always attempts to move back toward sea level ( the surface that recieves the precipitation determines its flow).
How does Dew form? When water vapor condenses directly onto a surface.
How does Frost form? When water vapor changes from gas directly to ice crystals on a surface when the temperature at which condensing would take place is at the freezing point or below.
What is a Cirrus cloud? Made of ice crystals and formed at high elevations, wispy clouds usually consist of ice crystals that signal rain weather.
What is a Cumulus cloud? Puffy white and flat bottoms and clouds formed at medium or loe elevations.
What is a Stratus cloud? A layered cloud and formed at medium or low elevation.
What is a Nimbo cloud? A cloud with mostly rain.
What is a Alto cloud? Medium leveled clouds formed at about 2 to 6 kilometers.
What is Fog? Clouds that forms when condensation occurs at or near the ground or the surface of a body of water.
