In the first place, the forest induces inversion during the day; temperatures in the underbrush are lower than on the crown cover; thus, loss of water vapor from the atmosphere is reduced, but at night water vapor condenses above the forest canopy causing diminished atmospheric pressure over the canopy, which causes suctioning of horizontal air and can bring humid air from the ocean; this is known as the biotic pump [11].
