The atmosphere is made up of 4 distinct layers: the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere. Different types of clouds form in the different layers depending on the pressure in the atmosphere and the ambi- ent temperature. The cloud types include nimbus, stratus, cumulus, and cirrus. Figure 1 shows the location of the barriers of the atmosphere when the temperature and pressure are at an ideal condition for cloud formation. It also shows the different types of clouds formed at the different levels.
->How do you interpret this kind of graph? I sort of get it that as we go higher, pressure increases, while temperature decreases. But the graph looks weird to me and I can't seem to understand the right side of the graph, which sort of "shows that temperature also increases". Can anyone help me explain the concept behind this type of graphical representation? Thanks in advance.
