The issue, even though correctly pointed out by the author that it is overly used in calculations, is in fact a meteorlogical phenomina.  It is called Adiabatic Heating and there are three lapse rates; Dry Adiabatic Lapse Rate of 3 degrees celcius / 1000', Environmental Adiabatic Lapse Rate of 2 degrees celcius / 1000', and Saturated Adiabatic Lapse Rate of 1.5 degrees celcius  / 1000'.  It is important to use the correct lapse rate for the environment that you are flying in for acccuracy purposes.
