Lapse Rate Calculator

Introduction : This calculator calculates the final temperature of an air parcel that rises adiabatically as long as air is not saturated. The "dry" adiabatic lapse rate is 9.8 K/km. In this calculator, you have three input values:
  1. Initial Temperature (Tinitial)
  2. Initial Height (zinitial)
  3. Final Height (zfinal)

The algorithm for the whatever it is is:
