Cold-air pooling in mountains defies elevation temperature norms
Cold-air pooling, an intriguing climatic anomaly where cold air descends from mountain peaks into lower valleys, challenges the generally accepted fact that higher altitudes are cooler than the valleys below. The phenomenon creates an environment where temperatures are actually warmer at higher altitudes and colder below. It reverses the typical temperature gradient expected in mountainous regions. This unusual occurrence disrupts the norm where cooler temperatures are expected with increased elevation.
