Description
Wednesday October 23 , Mitchell Charles 2013 Environmental Science Lab 3 Part D 6. The data in Part C of this lab supports the statement that the altitude of the tropopause is lowest at the poles and highest over the equator. We know this because it was stated that the altitude of the tropopause at Vanua Levu was given to us at 14.6 kilometers and the altitude of the tropopause at Luddington, Michigan was roughly 6 kilometers above sea level. The altitude of the tropopause is different at the poles than at the equator because the air temperature at the equator is much warmer than the temperature at the poles. This means that it takes more time for the air to cool at the equator as it has to rise more to reach the tropopause. This can also be explained by the ideal gas law. Since
