A Cloud Chamber, also known as a Wilson Cloud Chamber, is a particle detector used for visualizing the passage of ionizing radiation.
Cloud condensation nuclei or CCNs (also known as cloud seeds) are small particles typically 0.2 µm, or 1/100th the size of a cloud droplet on which water vapor condenses.
Cloud physics is the study of the physical processes that lead to the formation, growth and precipitation of atmospheric clouds.
In chemistry, a cluster is an ensemble of bound atoms or molecules that is intermediate in size between a molecule and a bulk solid.
In systems involving heat transfer, a condenser is a device or unit used to condense a substance from its gaseous to its liquid state, by cooling it.
Construction is the process of constructing a building or infrastructure.
Corrosion is a natural process, which converts a refined metal to a more chemically-stable form, such as its oxide, hydroxide, or sulfide.
Structural dampness is the presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building, either the result of intrusion from outside or condensation from within the structure.
Damp proofing in construction is a type of moisture control applied to building walls and floors to prevent moisture from passing into the interior spaces.
Darkling beetle is the common name of the large family of beetles, Tenebrionidae.
Deposition is a thermodynamic process, a phase transition in which gas transforms into solid without passing through the liquid phase.
Desertification is a type of land degradation in which a relatively dry area of land becomes increasingly arid, typically losing its bodies of water as well as vegetation and wildlife.
The dew point is the temperature to which air must be cooled to become saturated with water vapor.
Distillation is the process of separating the components or substances from a liquid mixture by selective boiling and condensation.
DNA condensation refers to the process of compacting DNA molecules in vitro or in vivo.
A drop or droplet is a small column of liquid, bounded completely or almost completely by free surfaces.
Dry rot is wood decay caused by certain species of fungi that digest parts of the wood which give the wood strength and stiffness.
Evaporation is a type of vaporization that occurs on the surface of a liquid as it changes into the gaseous phase before reaching its boiling point.
A fog collector or fog fence is an apparatus for collecting liquid water from fog, using a fine mesh.
Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being solid, liquid, and plasma).
The Groasis Waterboxx is a device designed to help grow trees in dry areas.
Heat transfer is a discipline of thermal engineering that concerns the generation, use, conversion, and exchange of thermal energy (heat) between physical systems.
Insulating glass (IG), more commonly known as double glazing (or double-pane, and increasingly triple glazing/pane), consists of two or three glass window panes separated by a vacuum or gas filled space to reduce heat transfer across a part of the building envelope.
The Kelvin equation describes the change in vapour pressure due to a curved liquid–vapor interface, such as the surface of a droplet.
Liquefaction of gases is physical conversion of a gas into a liquid state (condensation).
A liquid is a nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shape of its container but retains a (nearly) constant volume independent of pressure.
Mold health issues are potentially harmful effects of molds.
Namibia, officially the Republic of Namibia (German:; Republiek van Namibië), is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean.
A phase diagram in physical chemistry, engineering, mineralogy, and materials science is a type of chart used to show conditions (pressure, temperature, volume, etc.) at which thermodynamically distinct phases occur and coexist at equilibrium.
The term phase transition (or phase change) is most commonly used to describe transitions between solid, liquid and gaseous states of matter, and, in rare cases, plasma.
A phenomenon (Greek: φαινόμενον, phainómenon, from the verb phainein, to show, shine, appear, to be manifest or manifest itself, plural phenomena) is any thing which manifests itself.
Psychrometrics, psychrometry, and hygrometry are names for the field of engineering concerned with the physical and thermodynamic properties of gas-vapor mixtures.
Retrograde condensation occurs when gas in a tube is compressed beyond the point of condensation with the effect that the liquid evaporates again.

A snowflake is a single ice crystal that has achieved a sufficient size, and may have amalgamated with others, then falls through the Earth's atmosphere as snow.
In physics, a state of matter is one of the distinct forms in which matter can exist.
Sublimation is the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas phase, without passing through the intermediate liquid phase.
A surface condenser is a commonly used term for a water-cooled shell and tube heat exchanger installed on the exhaust steam from a steam turbine in thermal power stations.
A thermal bridge, also called a cold bridge or heat bridge, is an area or component of an object which has higher thermal conductivity than the surrounding materials, creating a path of least resistance for heat transfer.
The Thorny Devil (Moloch horridus) is an Australian lizard, also known as the mountain devil, the thorny lizard, or the moloch.
