Applied Weather Modification and CET during the Atmosphere and the Inversion of Temperature Lapse Rate Phenomenon:
cover northern Thailand ? )
During the transitional time of winter to summer when the sunshine gets very hot as it is actually nearer to the Earth. Of course, the result is the whole clear blue sky of this time of the year also gets heated up by conduction and convection from the fast heated ground. It means that our entire atmosphere is warmer compared to the surrounding ambient temperature.
Without this natural phenomenon of the inversion of temperature lapse rate, at this time of the year, occurs at certain altitude the atmosphere would normally get cooler with higher altitude to become minus and more in the entire troposphere. Any smoke will rise up and stronger wind aloft would carry it away dispersing it out into the sky. In this case we have clear weather over our city.
This means that during the inversion of temperature lapse rate phenomenon if the field burning after harvest and slash and burn activities of deforestation are not happening too much then our city and surrounding territory would not be covered by hazardous smog and smoke of ashes with the size of less than 10 microns particle mass and more than safe standard, for living things, of higher than 120 micrograms per 1 cubic meter.
The only way to clean air is to
reduce the cause of smoke. If there is no further and more of concrete
measurement and action for appropriate and correct management to the problems,
sufficient understanding and awareness of how to deal with the inter-relations
between forest-communities-farm-sustainability-development by all, as well as
basic law enforcement by concerned authorities then all business sectors and
the entire nation would get severely hurt. Most importantly the entire
environment and ecology as well as our health would get much deteriorated and
can be seriously more than too late. If we could stop or just ease off the
cause of smoke we also stop deforestations, land-slides, flash floods,
droughts, severe storms, and also global warming and so on. Then quality of
life can be better.
