  • I think it transfers it to surrounding gas molecules rather quickly thus warming the atmosphere water on the other hand i suspect hangs on to the latent heat of vaporisation, which is then not given up until it forms into droplets in clouds which takes a little longer and it’s higher in the troposphere and it might also be a considerable distance laterally from where it first took off from the surface.

  • Am I completely wrong when I say that “The relative concentrations of the heavier isotopes in the condensate phase indicate the temperature of vaporisation” in the zones where this happens?

  • Through his acquaintanceship with Robert Curl, Kroto learned that it should be possible to use Smalley's instrument to study the vaporisation and cluster formation of carbon, which might afford him evidence that the long-carbon-chain compounds could have been formed in the hot parts of stellar atmospheres.

  • A graphite sheet was soaked with a solution of a metal salt (lanthanum chloride, LaCl3) and subjected to vaporisation-condensation experiments.

  • The wind increases vaporisation and tends to exhaust the soil’s usable water content more rapidly.

    2.1. Factors in rainfall erosion

  • If the water flow is not sufficient to leach the soil, i.e. take the salts down to lower levels where they will not be harmful to plant life, these salts gradually build up in the soil due to vaporisation until they reach concentrations harmful to crops.

    2.1. Factors in rainfall erosion

  • The presence of an upper layer (e.g. of sand) which limits capillary movement of water and thus reduces vaporisation is a limiting factor in arid climates.
