See What Happens When This Rare Weather Phenomenon Hits The Grand CanyonThe Earth Site
Every few years, the Grand Canyon fills up with clouds due to a rare weather phenomenon called temperature inversion. Temperature inversion occurs when air near the surface of earth is colder than the layers of air above it. When the inversion is strong enough, this causes condensation, resulting in the kind of scenes as seen in this video captured at the Grand Canyon National Park by the U.S. National Park Service.
Amid such awe-inspiring sights, the Grand Canyon is also a refuge for several species of birds and animals. Save the environment around the Grand Canyon from the effects of Uranium mining by signing this petition now.
