Trade Wind Clouds and Islands

11 Nov Trade Wind Clouds and Islands

Kauai is a jungle shrouded paradise in the middle of the Pacific ocean, and Mount
Waialeale is one of the rainiest spots on the planet.  But how does it get that way?
What is the mechanism that provides all the rainfall on a continuous basis?
Check out this time lapse educational video that illustrates the interaction of trade wind
clouds and the island of Kauai.
This short video took 1st place on the www.dvinfo.net ‘Under Water Over Land’  UWOL
Challange in 2012.
