If you are a scientist, climatologist, or meteorologist, then you may have heard the term “air parcel” before. Air parcels can be unstable if they are either dry and cold or warm and moist. They also become unstable when they contain high levels of pollution particles.
In this blog post, we will explore what makes an air parcel stable?
The content is still being written. The following sentences are not finished and should be considered a work in progress. Air parcels can become unstable when the air contains high levels of pollution particles or if they’re warm and moist, either dry and cold, or both at once.
They also become unstable when they contain high levels of pollution particles which will cause them to rise more than usual because these pollutants reflect sunlight away from Earth’s surface back into space by emitting heat energy in infrared wavelengths that reduce atmospheric pressure on the ground below.
This form of instability causes extreme weather changes like tornadoes, thunderstorms, heavy rainfalls, blizzards etc…
