2 posts in this topic

Hi ,

I have task to do , I must designate layers of atmosphere in Polargmo ( 80 N ) based on

I thought that limit on the troposhere in January is on 9710 m , but my experienced friend told my that limit is on 15211 , because wind direction was changed. Polargmo is near to north pole , so I think that 15 kilometeres is impossible. In July designate limit of troposphere on 9933 m . What you think about that ?

You can clearly see the stratospheric inversion beginning at about 250mb on the skew-t. And yeah, you're not getting a tropopause at 15km.
