Plants & Water

Now You’re ready to enter the  chain of processes defining Earths Climate, to start with the interaction between Plants and Water.
Water from the oceans, heated by sunlight, transforms to Water-Vapour. We call this process “Passive Evaporation”.
Because the  Atmosphere above Oceans is cooler than above Landmasses, it can contain less Water-Vapour than the warmer Atmosphere above Landmasses. 
Ascending Water-Vapour cools-down in Earths Atmosphere and becomes clouds/rain clouds by condensation.
Oceans exposed by sunlight warm slower than landmasses. Lower pressure zones on above a landmass “suck in” moisture/rain clouds from the ocean area and areas nearby the seaside will receive their portion of precipitation.

When a landmass is covered with Green-Structures precipitation will be partly intercepted. 65% of the precipitation is captured by the Green Structures and “Active Evaporated” as water-vapour back to the atmosphere.

35% of the precipitation reaches earths surface and infiltrates in soil and is buffered in upper layers of the soil.

Superficial infiltrated water in soil is used by Green Structures for photosynthesis (water + Light + CO2 = Glucose = food for  Green Structures) and as soluble for nutrients is soil.

A part of the water sucked up by the Green Structures is “Active Evaporated” by the plants for cooling purposes because plants get warm by solar radiation.

Due to Active Evaporation processes a Green Covered landmass transfers  large quantities of Water-Vapour all over it’s surface to the Atmosphere where it condenses to Rain-Clouds all over the landmasses surface.

The part of the precipitation reaching deeper layers of the soil will become part of the underground water transport system by water-veins and finally become part of the surface water system (wells/streams/rivers) transporting water to the sea where the Water-Cycle starts again. Link Water-Cycle
