ambient air temperature at 3000m, internal temperature of the air parcel at 3000m C) determine if atmosphere at 3000m is stable or unstable?
The ambient air temperature at sea level (0m) is 18°C. A bubble of air (i.e., an air parcel) forms over an asphalt parking lot and gets heated to 24°C. This unsaturated air parcel (24°C) separates from the parking lot and is then forced to rise from sea level (0m) to 3000m and does not become saturated at any point. Given an Environmental Temperature Lapse Rate of 6°C/1000 m, a DALR of 10°C/1000 m, calculate: A) the ambient air temperature at 3000m (1 point), B) the internal temperature of the air parcel at 3000m (1 point). Then, C) determine if the atmosphere at 3000m is stable or unstable (1 point)
