  • How do clouds form
    How do Clouds Form? While there are a wide variety of cloud shapes and sizes, they are all made of the same thing: condensed water or ice. Clouds form when rising air, through expansion, cools to the point where some of the water vapor molecules "clump together" faster than they are torn apart by their thermal energy. Some of that (invisible) water vapor condenses to form (visible) cloud droplets or ice crystals. Some clouds are called “convective" because it is produced from warm air...

  • lightning properties - 455 Words
    Lightning is not distributed evenly around the planet, as seen in the image on the right. About 70% of lightning occurs over land in the tropics where atmospheric convection is the greatest. This occurs from both the mixture of warmer and colder air masses, as well as differences in moisture concentrations, and it generally happens at the boundaries between them. The flow of warm ocean currents past drier land masses, such as the Gulf Stream, partially explains the elevated frequency of...

  • Flash Flood - 343 Words
    It is common to have floods during the monsoon season. However, when it rains heavily at any other time, there is always one main worry - flash floods! What causes them? Basically, it is a result of too much rainfall and land development. Normally, when it rains in a forested area, most of the rainfall seeps into the soil or is trapped by the plants. Some of it flows into the rivers and streams. So, flooding is less likely to occur as the soil acts as a sponge. However, with...
