Paper Abstract

A potential temperature gradient expression for a system composed of air, unsaturated water vapor, and liquid water is presented. Inclusion of the water is shown to provide more accurate results than the more commonly used forms for potential temperature. This expression was also used in conjunction with a damp haze microphysics model to simulate nonadiabatic effects which are also presented. Quantitative comparisons of this more complete expression with those determined from formulations for a system composed of only air and unsaturated water vapor are presented.
