## static stability

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.S05947
In meteorology, the stability of the atmosphere in the vertical direction to vertical displacements. If $$\mathit{\Gamma}$$ is the dry @[email protected] lapse rate, dry air is @[email protected] if the lapse rate $$-\frac{\text{d}T}{\text{d}z} < \mathit{\Gamma }$$, @[email protected] if $$-\frac{\text{d}T}{\text{d}z} > \mathit{\Gamma }$$ and neutral $$-\frac{\text{d}T}{\text{d}z} = \mathit{\Gamma }$$.
