Model I: Inputs and Outputs for Parametric Calculations (Lapse Rate)

The model inputs are similar to those for a comprehensive type calculation. Here the system being modelled consists of a 1 m3 air parcel whose temperature and relative humidity are varied from their starting values by adiabatic movement between two atmospheric pressures (corresponding to a change in altitude). The output of results is flexible, with a choice between the normal mode used for the single-problem calculations, column mode (useful for pasting the results into other programs), and graphical mode. The input fields and output quantities are described below.



The on-line E-AIM models have three output modes: normal, column, and graph. All results are tested for thermodynamic consistency. Follow the links below for descriptions of their presentation, and the meanings of the various calculated quantities.
