Why does the temperature decreases when the altitude increases ?
Asked by | 25th Nov, 2009, 10:36: PM
Since the effect of radiations released by the Earth's surface decreases with increase in altitude. Therefore temperature decreases when the altitude increases.
Note this change in temperature happens only in the region close to Earth's surface.
