Homosphere - N2 and O2 are uniformly mixed Heterosphere - N2 and O2 are not uniformly mixed
Questions for Thought: 1. If there were no ozone layer, sketch the vertical distribution of temperature from 0-120 km 2. The mean lapse rate of the troposphere is 6.5°C per km. If the surface temperature is 30°C, what is the temperature at the top of Mt. Everest which is 9 km above the surface? 3. If the surface temperature is 30°C and the temperature at the top of Mt. Everest is -30°C, what is the mean tropospheric lapse rate? |
