How do mountains store rain water?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mountains, especially high mountains, act as a barrier to clouds. This forces the clouds to rise to colder temperatures, which in turn results in precipitation. Therefore, rainfall on mountains is usually greater than rainfall in places at lower elevations.

    When the precipitation occurs, most of the water is carried down the mountain in a number of streams or rivers. However, some of the water is captured by mountain lakes. Also, mountains can store water in groundwater bodies.
