Indicate which of the following statements is true and which is false:
- In Troposphere atmospheric pressure decrease exponentially with the increase in altitude.
- In the stratosphere, temperature rises with an increase in height due to the presence of ozone.
- The stratospheric atmosphere is calm and quiet.
- The increase in cases of skin cancer in South Australia is due to the ozone hole.
The correct statement is that atmospheric pressure decreases linearly with the increase of altitude in the troposphere.
The stratospheric atmosphere is not calm and quiet. It is turbulent and contains strong winds, particularly in the region of the polar vortex.
