Potential Temperature and Entropy at the Base of the Stratosphere over the British Isles

Abstract

THE English upper air data have lately been examined to discover what correlation exists between the potential temperature of the air at the boundary between the troposphere and stratosphere and some of the other variables of the upper air. Since the entropy of dry air is proportional to the logarithm of its potential temperature, we may, in so far as correlation coefficients are concerned, use the terms entropy and potential temperature indifferently. The actual data below are given in terms of the latter, but in the final conclusion it is more convenient to employ the former.
