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]
