**Lapse Rate Steps**

What is the temperature at this location? _______________ (Write unknown if presently appropriate.)

What is the elevation at this location? _______________ (Write unknown if presently appropriate.)

What is the temperature of the next point? _____________________ (Write unknown if presently appropriate.)

What is the elevation at the next point? _____________________________ (Write unknown if presently appropriate.)

The appropriate lapse rate is
the **[dry adiabatic, environmental, normal, wet
adiabatic.]**

What is the value of the appropriate lapse rate in degrees Fahrenheit for every thousand feet?__________

Does the temperature warm or cool between this point and the next point? ____________________

What is the difference in the temperature between this point and the next point? ___________ (Write unknown if presently appropriate.)

What is the difference in the elevation between this point and the next point? __________ (Write unknown if presently appropriate.)

Calculating to find the
unknown, how much does the temperature or elevation change
between the two points? _______________________ **[°F or
feet]**

What is the temperature or
elevation of the next point? ______________________ **[°F
or feet]**
