Abstract : Tables are given which are useful not only for cases of heat advection but also for other cases of nonadiabatic air temperature changes. The cause of condensation does not play a role in this case. In particular, condensation and even slight precipitation can evidently be caused by nocturnal radiation (if the air is saturated by water vapor over a sufficiently great distance) and also by the interdiurnal transformational air cooling which is not accompanied by heat advection. When the conditions are known, this graph can be used to determine not only air cooling during heat advection, but also air warming during cold advection. The results for air warming during cold advection will have to be interpreted differently, depending on whether or not there is condensed moisture, i.e., cloudiness at the examined level. (Author)
