- TL;DR Summary
- How do I calculate atmospheric partial pressure of oxygen using factors like altitude, temperature, humidity, and latitude?
I study genotype-environment associations in alpine species. I frequently see altitude as the sole predictor of partial pressure of oxygen in the literature concerning hypoxia adaptations. However, I understand that partial pressure of oxygen is also influenced by temperature, humidity, and latitude. Does anyone know of a way to calculate partial pressure of oxygen for points across a landscape using altitude, temperature, and possibly other abiotic factors? Or are the effects of other factors fairly negligible compared to altitude? Thanks!
