dewpoint depression

  1. Dew point depression and cloud formation

    Does the environmental and dew point temperatures have to coincide before saturation is reached and clouds form, or can the dew point depression be non-zero and allow clouds to form?
  2. Dew point inversion and vertical mixing

    I am looking at this old reference - http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/1520-0450%281968%29007%3C0206%3ADTI%3E2.0.CO%3B2 and I had a question regarding dew point inversion and it's effect on vertical mixing. Say I had a daytime dew point inversion at the upper level of the troposphere...

    Dewpoint depressions, relative humidity, and lifted condensation level

    I've been chasing for many years now. I've studied some mesoscale meteorology as it applies to thunderstorms/tornadoes, but I'm certainly no meteorologist. The three calculations in the thread title are things I've felt I understood pretty well, but the harder I think about them, the less clear...
