Water vapour produced by evapotranspiration rises above a rain forest, adding to or forming clouds above, which in turn may produce rain. The forest also produces nuclei so that rain more rain may fall, in a cycle resulting in more eveapotranspiration, more forest growth, more nuclei, and so on. Photo: Mt. Whitfield national Park, Cairns, Australia, David Clode.
