Timelapse footage of forests releasing vast amounts of moisture through transpiration and evaporation, a process known as evapotranspiration. The plumes of moisture can be seen condensing as the water rises from the forest canopy into a colder air layer above. Evapotranspiration is one of the major steps in the water cycle. Filmed in South Dakota, USA, in summer.
