Book 14: Broken Wind — Part II: Can Full of Sky


NARRATOR: Leeward ("south") of a godwall ("baffle")...

MURTAUGH: Doesn't the lee side of a mountain typically get less rain than the windward side?

LEGS: Yes, but mere mountains aren't big enough to create a permanent low-pressure zone.

Lower pressure cools the air and lowers the dewpoint.  That means more clouds and more rain.

SCHLOCK: And more sea-monsters.
