Figure 1 Lab 5: Atmospheric Soundings Figure 2 Figure 3 Figure 4 Correction: Page 26. The last sentence in the temperature paragraph should read: For example, looking at the sounding in Figure 1 we can see than at an altitude of 400mb, the air temperature was -20°C (brr, cold!) Question 1: Use Figure 1 from above to fill in the table at the top of page 27. Question 2: Do not use the skew-T from the lab manual. I’ll hand out a better color version. Question 3: If you’re stuck, try Question 4 first. Question 3 should read: Based on the sounding: a) Where is the atmosphere moist (holding almost as much moisture as it can for that temperature?) b) Where is it relatively dry? Question 5: Environmental lapse rate is the same thing as the temperature profile of your skew-T diagram. Question 6: Find the nocturnal inversion, the capping/subsidence inversion, and the tropopause and record their pressure values. Explain what’s causing each of them (feel free to search online if you’re unsure). Question 9: For part c, “temperature of the environment” refers to the temperature profile you drew on the skew-T diagram. Question 11: Use the sounding below from January 2016. In your laboratory manual, answer: a) Find the pressure of the nocturnal inversion, the capping/subsidence inversion, and tropopause b) At what pressure is the atmosphere most moist? c) At what pressure is the atmosphere most dry?
