Moist Adiabatic Lapse Rate The term 'Moist Adiabatic Lapse Rate' as it applies to the area of the weather can be defined as ' (abbrev. MALR)- The rate at which the temperature of a parcel of saturated air decreases as the parcel is lifted in the atmosphere. The moist adiabatic lapse rate (abbreviated MALR) is not a constant like the dry adiabatic lapse rate but is dependent on parcel temperature and pressure'.
