I have studied about tephigram. In all the books, it has written that isotherms and dry adiabats are skewed to certain degrees. But practically I could not connect it. how is it possible that constant temperatures and dry adiabats as well as dew points are skewed. please explain it.

    $\begingroup$ Have you had a look at a tephigram/Skew-T log-P diagram? Have you had a look at the connection between the values you mention? $\endgroup$ – Erik Oct 17 at 9:36
  • $\begingroup$ Yes I have gone through actual tephigram and skew T diagram. Due to too much complexity, I am confused. $\endgroup$ – sandip tripathy Oct 17 at 15:46
  • $\begingroup$ Do you know, how the different units presented (temperature, pressure, moisture) are interconnected? $\endgroup$ – Erik Oct 18 at 7:02
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, but I can't figure out how isotherms (costant temp.) are vertically skwed. Actually horizontal isoterms are easily comprehensible. The doubt doubles, when I have read on a website Skew T diagram are intentionally skwed to seperate out dew point and pressure lines. I could not really connect it. And my concept that had gathered from Berry and Chorley written book got scattered. $\endgroup$ – sandip tripathy Oct 19 at 12:00
