Rain and Flooding

Parent Category: Meteorology and Weather
Rain is a type of precipitation which is readily absorbed by the ground. However, flooding might occur if there is a downpour or heavy rain. Flooding can result in damage to property, illness and even death.
Puerto Lopez de Micay, a small town near the coastline of westernColombia, may be a new contender for the wettest inhabited place inthe world.. Between April 1960 and February 2012, an average annual rainfallof just over 507 inches has been recorded at the weatherobservation station here, including...
The ground drinks the water and air underneath the surface forces its way up.
About 90'' of potatoes on the coastal regions.
Atlanta in May has the most rainfall in Georgia.
Orography is mountainous terrain. Orographic precipitation is precipitation formed when air is forced to rise over mountains or at least large hills.
Here are the ones that I can find records for: . 1972-1973 . 1982-1983 . 1986-1987 . 1991-1992 . 1994-1995 . 1997-1998 . 2002-2003 . 2004-2005 . 2009-2010
Kinetic energy is energy produced by motion/activity. Molecules become more active as they heat up. Therefore, molecules in a gaseous state would have the greatest kinetic energy.
The average precipitation per month in Brazil is 1761 mm

It depends upon the venting that is used, look for your vent pipeson the roof and see if any are close to open windows. If you find aparticularly close vent pipe (and you home has several vent pipes)you can add a "Studor Vent" to the top of the vent. A Studor ventis the equivalent to a one-way air...
Trees stop the wind carrying rainy cloudy. where that wind stopped, it rains. so cutting trees or deforestation is to prevent rain in your region.
areas of rising air and low pressure . When air rises it cools, and the moisture it containscondenses out as clouds, which eventually produce precipitation.
Norway and Italy rain the most , 3rd is UK
no one knows how many people lost there home.
any where a factory is producing smoke that contains a gas whichproduces an acid when combined with water. Carbon-dioxide does, butvery weakly. The main "acid rain" producer is Sulphur Dioxide,dissolving in water to form sulphurous acid.
1" of rain is roughly 10" of snow, depending on conditions. So, 5" inches of rain would be 50" of snow or 4' 2".
because the acids in the rain, usually nitric acid or sulphuric acid, causes a chemical reaction with the calcium carbonate in the limestone. This leads to dissolution of the limestone and so the limestone buildings eventually crumble and fall down.
During condensation , the water vapor in the air condensesinto a cloud.
Probably not . Most fluids are not very compressible at all. I doubt there are any fluids, flammable or not, that are much more compressible than water. Maybe 50% more compressible (at best a factor of 2), but I very much doubt there are fluids that are 3-4 times as compressible as water. Gases on...
According to the Bible, the Flood covered the whole world. Certainly, it would not be possible for waters to cover Mount Ararat without covering the whole world - assuming that there is somehow enough water to achieve this. On the other hand, Egypt and other ancient civilisations continued right...
Yes. A rain free base is a sign of an updraft.
Floods first thing in the morning with a cold engine: 1 worn out spark plugs 2 plugged air filter 3 bad coil or plug wires 4 dirty injectors 5 engine coolant temperature sensor 6 worn / slacked timing belt 7 low cylinder compression
because of the wind
Typical effects Primary effects . Physical damage - Can range anywhere from bridges, cars, buildings, sewer systems, roadways, canals and any other type of structure. . Casualties - People and livestock die due to drowning. It can also lead to epidemics and diseases. Secondary effects ....
Their rice fields get flooded so their is famine The lose their homes cuz it full of water(depends on how high the water is) No school for kids= no education That's all I've got . easy. The answer is I don't know!!
Because a lot of water can run to them at times without enough drainage for the water to escape.
A flood happens when water over flows from to much rain and over flows the city/village/etc........ also, when it rain for so long and rain so hard
probably Antarctica because it's so cold or Asia because there is known to be many droughts there.
What types of granite does not react with acids?
It is different according to where you live
Evaporation: Water in big bodies (rivers, lakes, the ocean) andtranspiration (water from plants) enters the air as gas when it isheated. Condensation: The gas comes together in the air to form a cloud. Precipitation: The cloud becomes colder and the water vapor becomesliquid. The liquid falls to...
From wiki "Evaporation is caused when water is exposed to air and the liquid molecules turn into water vapor which rises up and forms clouds". This is because water vapor is lighter than air. The clouds then hold the water until a temperature drop causes the water to condense into droplets, which...
Water enters the group through absorption.
No, from what I know, Milford Sound does with about 68% more rain than Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.
Answer . Yes. The rain prevents the Pollen from from being air-borne.. Answer . Generally, yes. The pollen grains are "washed out" of the atmosphere.
Sleet is where a snowflake falls into a warmer surface layer below a cloud and melts, its starts to freeze again in the subfreezig surface layer of air, the partially melted snowflake or cold rain drop refreezes back into tiny translucent ice pellets known as sleet. \n. Freezing rain however, may...
To calculate the wind speed of a flood: Lets say D stands for the depth of the flood in meters, and G is the speed of gravity, which is 1471 / 150 or 9 121 / 150 . The land speed of the flood would be the square root of D and G. Multiply by 900 / 463 to convert from meters per second to...
I can't really answer that, since are ponds and lakes in all parts of the world , and so it varies greatly depending which lake you are talking about.
This might help you. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/94/Water_cycle.png
The average precipitation for Paris 641.6 mm (25.2 inches), compared to London's 585mm a year or around 23"
There are three types of rain:. Convectional rain . Orographic Rain . Frontal Rain
The Bangladesh flood happened Dhaka and lots of more places. The flood took place in 1998 between July to September.

2010 began as a moderate El Nino and transitioned into a strong La Nina by the second half of the year. It is showing signs of peaking as of December 2010, but its effects will be felt through the boreal winter and spring.
Tropical northern Australia has a huge rainfall in summer.Bellenden Ker in Far North Queensland has an average of 380 inch but it can peak at over 500. That's what you call rain.
It wouldn't be the same as it first was.
Well I don't know it depends where you are in the country or the world...
Yes, Seattle receives copious amounts of rainfall, but contrary to popular belief, it is not especially rainy compared to other cities. New York City, Boston, Atlanta, and Houston all receive more rainfall than Seattle.
That part in which the water is within a living organism, but onlyfor any particular volume of water whilst it is within the organism
Perhaps this is because at a higher temperature, the molecules have a higher average speed. - I thought that if something was more dense then tings are harder the travel through. For example, glass is more dense than air and sound travels slower through glass than air.

The transfer of water through the ground and back to the sea is called precipitation.
Houses were destroyed, People were sent away to live in shelters. Big buildings crushed. Buisnesses such as pubs were ruined. Shop/Pubs (etc) owners are now in debt. Several people lost their cats and a woman lost her premature newborn twins due to her house flooding.
It can make lakes acidic which can kill the plant and animal life the lake harbours. It can also damage trees, plants and crops.
Every desert has different statistics. However, a desert is definedas a region that receives less than 10 inches (250 mm) ofprecipitation per year on average.
depend Totally preventable then no they are not. The effects can be alleviated by careful planning and management.
It starts with evaporation. The water gets evaporated and turns into clouds. Up highg in the sky it is ice pellets. When it rains the ice melts, when it snows, the collect dust particles and stuff...and when it ices, it stays the same.
No. Lighting produces a flash. Thunder is the sound the lightningproduces.
it is Convectional rain

No. Acid rain is just one type of pollution out of many.
Most of Brazil receives from 1000 to 1500 mm (39 to 59 in.)of rain per year. However, NE Brazil is semi-arid, hot and dry, with severe droughts except directly along the Atlantic coast. The Amazon basin (despite a 3-to-5-month dry season) receives as much as 2000 or even 3000 mm (79 to 118 in.)...
