The surface temperature plays a decisive role in both processes. 1 Distillation (dew rise) If the absolute humidity of the air is lower than that of the soil air - a normal condition in irrigated fields and in the growing season of the temperate zone on clear nights - vapour diffuses from the soil into the lower air layers.
