Meteorology *Seasonal Changes Autumnal equinox (sep,22…fall)  winter solstice ..longest day (dec, 21)  Vernal Equinox (march,20…spring)  summer solstice (june, 21) -Rotation around the sun…… 23 ½’ tilt Min temp record- 6 am Max temp record- noon **The highest (maximum) temperature occurs when heat gain due to incoming solar radiation, and heat loss due to outgoing terrestrial radiation balance: this occurs sometime after midday. Reflectivitymeasure of the ability of a surface to reflect radiation, Output (solar radiation)> input Radiational Cooling- (dry) whatever we absorb during the day time we emit back at night Cloudy nights are warmer then clear nights: keeps radiation in like a blanket Water vapor: good absorber and emitter of radiation Temperature lapse: temp decreases with height Temperature Inversion: temp increases with height (stratosphere) **Near surface temperature air inversion -Nice clear days, surface becomes cool (radiational cooling) temperature near surface is colder, but as you increase in height it becomes warmer Mid morning/mid day: smoke from a chimney goes straight up (unstable atmosphere) Late night: smoke goes out to the side (Stable Atmosphere/ Radiational Cooling) Windy days: the wind mixes the smoke with the atmosphere **In the Southern Hemisphere everything is opposite because of the difference in the earths tilt.
