It determines that region's way of life and potentially it's culture as well.


The water cycle provides the Earth with water. Water from the oceans or any body of water is evaporated by the sun. It then becomes a gas and rises up into the atmosphere. Once it reaches a certain height it cools and condenses into clouds, but it is not yet heavy enough to fall back down. Clouds are visible because of other particles and debris in the air that mixes with the water.

After enough water has grouped together it will fall back down as precipitation. Depending on what region it is it might fall as; hail, sleet, snow or rain. The amount of rainfall a region gets determines what plants can grow there and the animal life that lives there as well.
