A vertical line means (Shallow/Steep) ELR
When the ELR shows an increase in temp with height, there is said to be an (Inversion/Isothermal layer) which is known as a (positive/negative?) lapse rate.
An adiabatic process is one where heat energy (is/is not?) lost or gained from the surroundings?
The dry adiabatic lapse rate is about what?
3 degrees per 1000ft
When the DALR lies below the ELR on the Temp/Altitude graph, (moist/dry) air air is said to be (stable/unstable)
The SALR is about ? per 1000ft and (reduces/remains constant/increases?) with altitude.
When the SALR is above the ELR on the Temp/Alt graph, Moist Air is said to be (stable/unstable?)
When rising saturated air is stable, there (will/will not) be (stratoform/cumuliform/any) cloud.
When unstable rising air remains dry, there (will/will not?) be (stratiform/cumuliform/any?) cloud.
When flying below the cloud base in conditions where the DALR lies above the ELR, the cloud type is most likely to be ?? and the flight conditons will be (smooth/turbulent)
When thermal rising takes place and cloud develops, the base of this cloud will (rise/lower) if the dew point increases, and the base will (rise/lower) if the dew point is steady but the surface air temp increases?
