- With surface temperature and dew point => we can estimate the height of cloud base.
Cloud base = (surface temperature – surface dew point) x 400
Considering the above, we can say that the height of the condensation level can be determined from the surface temperature and dew point.
- If the dew point is significantly lower than temperature => condensation level is at a higher altitude.
- On the other hand, if the difference between the surface temperature and the surface dew point is not significant => condensation level will be at lower altitude.
