Solution for homework 8 1. atmospheric stability (1) dT/dZ= (0.1 o C)-(-4.49 o C)/(349m-1.5 m) = +0.0132 o C /m Therefore the ambient lapse rate is +1.32 o C /100 m Comparing with adiabatic lapse rate (i.e., 1 o C/100m) we find that the ambient lapse rate is greater than the adiabatic lapse rate, therefore the atmosphere is stable. Infact, this is an inversion. (2) dT/dZ = (19.67 o C)- (28.05 o C)/(279m –12m) = -0.031386 o C /m Therefore the ambient lapse rate is –3.14 C/100 m Comparing with adiabatic lapse rate (i.e., 1
