Unformatted text preview: parcel of air because of expansion, resulting in cooling, or compression, resulting in heating. No heat energy is exchanged between the air within the parcel and the outside environment. • Dry adiabatic lapse rate= -10 degrees C per 100 meters , -5.5 Degrees F per 100 feet • DAR • What happens when the air within the parcel cools down to the dew point? (RH= 100%) Condensation Begins (heat is being released) • As the parcel continues to rise it cool at the DAR, heat is added through condensation at about +4 Deg C per 100 meters • Result -10 +4 -6 • Moist Adiabatic lapse rate= -6 Deg C per 100 meters, -3.3 Deg F per 1000 feet 16:44 16:44...
