        Water Vapor Circulation on Earth

        Water vapor plays an important role in the water cycle and in the distribution of heat around the planet. By observing the movement of water vapor, scientists can study global wind patterns and the development of cyclonic storms. In this simulation from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, water vapor circulates around Earth over the course of a year.
