Why is the vertical movement of air critical to the formation of clouds and precipitation? What role do adiabatic temperature changes pay in these processes?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 20, 2018, 1:08 am ad1c9bdddf
Clouds are formed when air containing water vapor is cooled below a critical temperature called the dew point. This is the temperature to which air must be cooled at constant pressure in order for it to become saturated with water. In addition, there ...
