Wow, @John came with a simple answer. Our goal is to find $$\frac{dT}{dP}=\frac{dT}{dz}\cdot\frac{dz}{dP}$$ By the equation for pressure lapse: $$P=P_0\cdot e^{-\frac{z}{H}}$$ where $H=8 km=8000 m$ (...

The speleothems are made of calcite, so breaking one small stalactite is same as breaking one narrow "straw" of calcite. Calcite is not so strong, so it is pretty easy to break small ...

Yes, your figure is correct: in the mid-latitudes we have cyclones and anticyclones. They can't exist on equator because the Coriolis force there is too small to keep them stable. But the cyclones or ...

I believe it had been raining before. The water had gone to the soil, but the moment you took that picture, it was already evaporating. The air was filling with such water coming from the soil, but ...

Your assumption about constant pressure can't actually exist while everything is closed. I am not using this assumption here because it is more correct and a bit easier: $$\pu{10 feet} = \pu{3.048 m}$$...

The Earth is always radiating heat to the space. But in the day the Sun delivers some heat. The net heat flux is then defined as the sum of those two factors. If the energy delivered by the Sun is ...

Let's do this with accurate equations. We know how to calculate the saturated water vapour pressure for temperature $T$: e_s(T)=e_{s0}e^{\frac{h_i}{R_w}(\frac{1}{T_{s0}}-\frac{1}{T})}=610\text{ Pa} \...

The mountains. The south has a steep relief, as well as the west. That means that there is much precipitation. The clouds throw every drop on these mountains, so almost nothing is left. The east is ...

Climate science studies the processes on the Earth over the course of many centuries. The rotation of the Earth is so small compared to many centuries. Imagine that we roast the chicken. We can ...

I am sorry, but this type of linear map can't exist. You said that you want to minimize differences, so you want to make small countries bigger. But unfortunately, big countries become bigger too (...
