Water Storage in the Atmosphere-Biology
Transcript of Water Storage in the Atmosphere-Biology
the Atmosphere -The atmosphere doesn't store the water, it moves it. Atmosphere -The best way to see the water in the atmosphere is by clouds. Clouds -They can tell that clouds have weight because air has weight. The result of air having weight means it must also have density. How Much Does a Cloud Weigh -Going by an average, every day cumulus cloud, which has a volume of about 1 cubic kilometer at about 2 km above the ground, weighs about 2.211 billion pounds. How the Atmosphere Helps the Water Cycle -The atmosphere's nickname is the superhighway for water. -There is water in the atmosphere at all times. -The best estimate of water in the atmosphere at one time is only about .001% of the total Earth's water. -Since clouds are made up of particles, they have to
have weight and density. -The reason clouds float in the first place is because
the density of the same volume of cloud material is less than the density of the same amount of dry air.
An example of this is the reason that oil floats
on water. -Even though the cloud weighs that much, the lesser density of the cloud is what keeps it floating over a more-dense air.
