Abstract

To maintain the global water balance, the evaporation from oceans worldwide should be balanced by precipitation into the oceans plus runoff from the continents. The earth’s atmosphere contains only 0.001% of the earth’s water, yet it is an important part of the global hydrological cycle. Atmospheric currents carry water vapor to land which gives precipitation and which in turn sustains life on land.
