Where does precipitation happen mostly?
Precipitation is depended mostly on the location and surroundings of the environment. The areas which are located near the oceans or large bodies of water near it will receive more rain as compared to the Inland area. The reason is the wind picks up moisture over the water which increases precipitation. hence, that type of areas which are near to the ocean and mostly above from the normal land, there precipitation happen mostly.
Who measured Precipitation?
Precipitation is measured by rain Gauge. It is the small tube of plastic or glass in which the upper end is open. The measuring scale is attached to the tube, which measures the exact amount of Precipitation. Precipitation is measured in inches and centimeters.
Why is the precipitation important?
