1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data With the drying out of Central California with global warming, the lapse rate may change from a moist adiabatic lapse rate to a dry lapse rate. Does this mean the lapse rate would decrease or increase? 2. Relevant equations https://www.google.com/search?q=moi...ozE39a0yAIVTJUNCh01TA_T#imgrc=TVgSQ4ZODxnXTM: 3. The attempt at a solution I can see what the difference of the slopes are. I would say that moist adiabat has a higher lapse rate than the dry diabat. Therefore if we go from Moist adiabat to Dry adiabat then the lapse rate would decrease.
