2. As air encounters a mountain, it is forced upwards, expanding the volume and making it cool. The moisture in the air begins to condense and can come down as precipitation. On the leeward side of the mountain, the air is compressed, increasing the temperature so that the now drier air can hold more moisture. This is the process of adiabatic cooling. The air can also collect moisture from the land on the leeward side of the mountain. This effect causes little precipitation and moisture on the leeward side of the mountain, creating deserts through the rainshadow effect.
