Water vapor

Water vapor or water vapour (see spelling differences), also aqueous vapor, is the gas phase of water. Water vapor is one state of the water cycle within the hydrosphere.

Under normal atmospheric conditions, water vapor is continuously generated by evaporation and removed by condensation. Water vapor is a greenhouse gas along with carbon dioxide and methane.
