Lapse Rate is the temperature drop per kilometer height increase Typically about 6 °C/km = 6 °C/1000m Or About 3 °F/1000 ft

Question: Assume that the surface temperature is 30 C and that the lapse rate near the surface for this particular location and time is 8 oC/km. What is the temperature at a height of 1 km? What is the temperature at a height of 2 km

Question: Assume that the surface temperature is 30 C and that the lapse rate near the surface for this particular location and time is 8 oC/km. What is the temperature at a height of 1 km? What is the temperature at a height of 2 km? Answer Temperature=30-8=22 at 1km Temperature=22-8=14 at 2km
