Vertical Profile Based on Composition
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?
