The Lifting Condensation Level (LCL) is the height at which a parcel of air becomes saturated when lifted dry adiabatically.
The Convective Condensation Level (CCL) is the height where a parcel of air becomes saturated when heated from below.
The environmental conditions--which consisted of moderate convective available potential energy (CAPE), a low lifting condensation level, a small surface dewpoint depression, a large veering low-level vertical wind shear, and a large cell-relative helicity--are favorable for producing miniature supercells.
These tornadoes often reside in miniature supercells in an environment characterized by a high low-level moisture content, a low lifting condensation level, a small surface dewpoint depression, small or moderate convective available potential energy (CAPE), and enhanced low-level shear due to increased surface friction from water to land, as well as boundary layer convergence (Green et al.
"But in other applications you might want a certain moisture and condensation level
because you want your cookies not too dry and not too moist.
Heat of condensation comes into play once the condensation level has been reached; that's usually at elevations of between 1,500 and 10,000 feet.
The heat source in a solar chimney, which cannot extend high enough to reach the condensation level, is sensible heat.
Undercutting means uplifting the resident airmass, which means cooling to condensation level
so cloud (or more cloud) forms and the probability of precipitation of excess moisture becomes more and more likely.
First, it recognizes that the dynamics of a cumulus cloud must be affected by the latent heat release above the condensation level
. Second, it explicitly takes into account the transient nature of the flow, comprising the stages of formation, development, and dissolution.
Mr Meyrick said this was usually condensation rather than rising or penetrating damp, but that extractor fans would be installed which kicked into gear when condensation levels
reached a certain point.
As well as making the inside warmer and less draughty, this should improve weatherproofing, condensation levels
and sound insulation, and will give the exterior walls a new look and lease of life.
