Pagination or Media Count:
Any set of temperature, pressure and density values which are realistic for one altitude can be exactly connected to another set of temperature, pressure and density values at a second altitude, with a model atmosphere defined by the appropriate linearly segmented two-layer temperature- altitude profile provided one of these layers is isothermal and the second is a nonzero constant gradient of temperature with respect to height. The altitude comprising the intersection of the two segments of the required temperature- altitude profile is determined mathematically. The method for generating two- layer models is applied to the generation of three-layer and four-layer models.
