takes place at an average height of 3,000
feet, scientists conclude that the force of
evaporation to supply such rainfall must
equal the lifting of 322,000,(XX) [>oimds of

three hundred billion liorse(«wer con

amount of energy thus created a very I
small proportion is transferred to the

utilized by man; the remainder is dissi
