Several branches of science are involved in the making of a pitch.
It's simple, you missed the point. I haven't said anything about the making of a pitch.

If a pitch is already made bouncy, moist air will help better seam movement and will help in bounce as it will prevent quick evaporation of moisture from the wicket. Very simple principle of physics.

Moisture on the wicket greatly helps in seam movement and bounce.
