The temperature distribution in the Earth’s atmosphere is studied as a function of distance z counted from the Earth’s surface. Owing to the supposition about the interaction between the convective flow and solar radiation with regard to the coordinate dependence of the atmospheric density, meteorological measurements have been explained.
