Why does it rain so frequently in the rainforests?

    Solar radiation is strongest near the equator, and the equator is mostly covered by water so a large amount of water evaporates. As air heats it become less dense and rises and water condenses to form rain which is why the tropics are wet. In areas where there are mountains near the coast and prevailing winds are towards the continent, water evaporates from the ocean, as it rises over the mountains it cools and water condenses to form rain – this is the reason for most temperate rain forests.
