Lapse Rate:

Lapse Rate rate at which atmospheric temperature decreases with the increase in altitude

Environmental Lapse Rate:

Environmental Lapse Rate lapse rate in the stationary atmosphere given a time and place

Dry Adiabatic Lapse Rate:

Dry Adiabatic Lapse Rate lapse rate for a parcel of dry or unsaturated air rising under adiabatic conditions
