Saturated Adiabat Gamma

Description

Saturated adiabat at the points of the sounding as computed internally, considering hydrostatic balance and as \frac{dT}{dP} (in pressure levels) (K/Pa).

Usage

gamma_saturated(Ps, Temps)

Arguments

Ps

A vector with pressure values (Pa).

Temps

A vector with temperature values (K).

Value

This function returns the vertical derivate Γ _s= \frac{dT}{dP} \Big|_s for a saturated adiabatic evolution.

Examples

data(RadiosondeA)
aPs<-RadiosondeA[,1]*100
aTs<-C2K(RadiosondeA[,3])
gamma_saturated(aPs,aTs)
