Elijah Ward, 10, Starr, South Carolina Almost everybody knows, just before it starts to rain, that it's ?oing to rain. All you have to do Is look at the clouds. But rain actually starts with the sun! The heating of the earth by the sun (bodies of water and damp soil), causes the water to turn to water vapor and become mixed with the air. Warm air rises and takes with it the water vapor which has[ evaporated from the surface of I :he earth. As this warm air rises, it gradually cools and forms a :loud. The tiny droplets become arger and larger as they collect more moisture. Finally the drops >ecome so large that they can no onger be held up by the air currents, and they fall to the ground as rain. How can we measure how much rain has fallen? This is done by means of an instrument called a Cain gauge. One type of gauge used by the United States Weather Bureau is shaped like a hollow tube closed at the lower end, with a funnel at the v top. The gauge is placed in an open area, away rom buildings and trees. When •ain occurs, a measuring stick is used to tell how much rain has fallen into the tube. Rainfall is measured by the depth of rain in the bottom of the gauge. If there is an inch of rain in the gauge the weatherman says that one inch of rain has fallen. This means that, if the rain• fall is uniform over a given area, enough rain has fallen to make a sheet of water an inch deep over that area. Of course, since the water soaks into the ground or runs off in streams and rivers, it is not possible to see the rain spread out all at once over any large area in this way. The amount of rain mat falls in a region during a year has a great deal to do with the region's climate. A place having less than 10 inches of rainfall during the year is called a desert. Ten to 20 inches is enough to grow grass and pasture for raising cattle. If more than 100 inches of rain falls during the warm season, trees and plants become so thick that a jungle is formed!
