A rain puddle across the world 160 feet deep
Let's assume, theoretically, that these clouds, 4000 feet above the sea, mark the upper edge of the high-density region of the water-vapor in the atmosphere that is typically in the 4% range. What does this mean? It means that if all the water in the atmosphere, up to the height of the clouds, would be converted to rain, it would create a rain puddle across the world 160 feet deep.
