Three Types of Lapse Rates of Air Temperature

We need to understand different types of lapse rates to satisfy a curious person who might ask for the reason of rainfall. “Why does it rain?” To answer this simple question, we must understand that the temperature of air declines as it rises from the earth surface towards higher altitude. The curious mind will again ask, … Read more

Adiabatic Rate of Temperature Change

What is Adiabatic change of temperature? The change in temperature of any parcel of air due to change in pressure is called adiabatic change in temperature. This change in temperature happens without exchange of heat of a given parcel of rising air with the surrounding air. Let’s disaggregate this concept First, Earth surface gets heated … Read more
