Prominent features of Stevenson screen

weather station – features and instruments

what is Stevenson screen? A Stevenson screen or instrument shelter is a shelter or an enclosure to shield meteorological instruments against precipitation, and direct heat radiation from outside sources, while still allowing air to circulate freely around them. A Stevenson screen is a prominent feature on most weather stations. It is used to house weather …

Health and environmental effects of ozone layer destruction

The ozone layer or ozone shield refers to a region of Earth’s stratosphere that absorbs most of the Sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It contains high concentrations of ozone (O3) relative to other parts of the atmosphere, although still very small relative to other gases in the stratosphere. Reductions in stratospheric ozone levels will lead to …

4 types of temperature inversion

Temperature inversion is condition in which the temperature of the atmosphere increases with altitude in contrast to the normal decrease with altitude. When temperature inversion occurs, cold air underlies warmer air at higher altitudes. There are four kinds of temperature inversions: ground, turbulence, subsidence, and frontal. A ground inversion develops when air is cooled by …

Causes and consequence of temperature inversions

Temperature inversion is condition in which the temperature of the atmosphere increases with altitude in contrast to the normal decrease with altitude. When temperature inversion occurs, cold air underlies warmer air at higher altitudes.     Normally, temperature decreases with increase in elevation. It is called normal lapse rate. At times, the situations is reversed …
