Stimulus details: precipitation change

impact chain for precipitation change :
Looking for an impact chain on precipitation change? We apologize that we do not provide an impact chain for precipitation change as the graphical representation would be too complex.

For precipitation change related impact chains see Hydrological drought and Meteorological drought.
Precipitation can be simply defined as any form of water particles, whether liquid or solid, that fall from the atmosphere and reach the ground (NSIDC, 2010). When cloud particles (condensed atmospheric water) become too heavy to remain suspended in the air, they fall to earth as precipitation. Generated through the Bergeron process or collision-coalescence process the most common forms of precipitation are rain and snow. Other forms of appearance are sleet, glaze, hail, rime, drizzle, mist and graupel.
