Water in the Atmosphere. Key Terms to understand The Water Cycle Evaporation - Condensation – process by which molecules of water vapor in the air become.
Clouds are collections of tiny ice crystals or water droplets. All air contains water vapor. When the air cools water vapor condenses. This condensed.
