Abstract : The present article describes the extent to which oscillations (variations) of the altitude of the tropopause depend on processes in the lower troposphere and how, on the basis of these processes, the sign and magnitude of the change in the altitude of the tropopause may be judged. The exposition of this relationship is of practical interest since, in preparing the weather forecast, the forecaster does not compute local temperature changes at altitudes in the region of the tropopause that depend on the aforementioned factors.
