Miscellaneous Notes
Loaded Gun Chasing
website of storm chaser Mikey Gribble
These are the notes I've taken that don't really fall into any particular category. A lot of them are   
just useful conversions, definitions, and other things that are good to know.
Farenheit to Celcius Conversion
F = (1.8 x C) + 32
Wind Conversions
multiply m/s x 1.94 to get kts
Equation of State
- the relationship between pressure, density, and temperature
pressure = density x R (gas constant) x temperature (K)

- moist air id less dense than dry air and hot air is less dense than cold air
Atmospheric Structure (Vasquez)
- troposhere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere

- below are average heights for different pressure levels
1000mb = 300ft. (100m)
850mb = 5,000ft. (1.5km)
700mb = 10,000ft. (3km)
500mb = 18,000ft. (6km)
300mb = 30,000 (9km)
200mb = 39,000ft. (12km)
100mb = 54,000ft. (17km)
Lapse Rates
dry adiabatic lapse rate = 10C/KM
wet adiabatic lapse rate = 6C/KM
