Title: A new definition of the virtual temperature, valid for the atmosphere and the CO2-rich air of the vadose zone
Authors: Kowalski, Andrew S.
Sánchez-Cañete, E. P.
Issue Date: Aug-2010
Abstract: In speleological environments, partial pressures of carbon dioxide (CO2) are often large enough to affect overall air density. Excluding this gas when defining the gas constant for air, a new definition is proposed for the virtual temperature Tυ that remains valid for the atmosphere in general but furthermore serves to examine the buoyancy of CO2-rich air in caves and other subterranean airspaces.
