Properties of the Atmosphere (continued)

Today's Topics:
Temperature inversions
Humidity & Relative Humidity
Saturation
Dew Point
Humidity vs. Relative Humidity
Humidity:
the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere
Saturation:
occurs when the air is holding max amount of water vapor
Relative Humidity:
amount of water vapor in the air compared to how much is required for saturation, expressed as a percent (saturation = 100%)
What is a temperature inversion?
A temperature inversion is an
increase
in temperature with height in an atmospheric layer.
Remember this?
Our next assignment...
Collecting weather data
Dew Point
Also describes moisture content of air
The temperature to which air must be cooled at to reach saturation
Higher dew point = more moisture
