Depth of the PBL?
Tephigram exercise 1
Depth of the PBL
Approx 100 hPa
Tephigram exercise 1
Q: RH at 1000 hPa?
Tephigram exercise 1
RH=rv/rs = 5 / 7.7 = 65%
Depth of the PBL=100hPa. [email protected]=65% @900hPa=85%
Is the PBL well mixed?
Potential temperature at 800 hPa? (two ways)
Potential temperature at 800 hPa?
291K – Two ways to read…

What is the condensation temperature and pressure of parcel at 1000 hPa?
910 hPa and 2.5oC
Tephigram exercise 2
What is dew point temperature of parcel at 1000 hPa?
Approximately 4oC
Rainfall evaporated into parcel at 1000 hPa?
Becomes saturated at 7oC, called the “wet-bulb temperature”
Mixing ratio at this point is 6.3 g kg-1
What is the equivalent potential temperature of parcel at 1000 hPa?
22.5oC – this is the same as the equivalent temperature.
What is the equivalent potential temperature of parcel at 900 hPa?
900 hPa = 23oC, 700hPa off the page, different tephigram bounds required
It is increasing with height.
What are the LCL and LFC for parcel at 1000 hPa?
Tephigram exercise 3
LCL is 910 hPa (same as condensation pressure). LFC undefined.
Trigger temperature 17oC, convection unlikely, as requires strong heating.
What is dew point temperature of parcel at 1000 hPa?
Approximately 4oC
