QUIZ – 2016: Insights Current Affairs Quiz

11 November, 2016


Q1, 8th November, 2016 Quiz (Click Here): Regarding temperature inversion – A mistake made by us. The idea behind the statement was that the phenomenon of reversal (inversion) in temperature profile is observed only in the troposphere. The stratosphere always has an inverted temperature profile and does not observe any ‘reversal’ like that which is seen sometimes in the troposphere. Statement 2 should have been appropriately worded to reflect this.

Additional and relevant information regarding the Stratosphere temperature profile (Click HERE): “The Stratosphere defines a layer in which temperatures rises with increasing altitude. This rise is attributed to absorption of UV radiation from the Sun by the Ozone layer. The temperature profile creates very stable atmospheric conditions, and the stratosphere lacks the air turbulence that is so prevalent in the troposphere.”
