Caption: Temperature at altitude. Computer artwork indicating how temperature changes with altitude. The air temperature decreases with increasing altitude, which is due to a drop in air pressure. Dry air cools at a fixed rate of approximately 2-3 degrees celsius per 300 metres. For this image without the labels, see image E500/0158.
