Boiling Point of Water as a Function of Altitude
The boiling temperature of water decreases as the pressure decreases or as the altitude increases. For example, water boils at 212 °F at or near the sea level. In Oxford, Mississippi, where the elevation is about 505 ft., water boils at 211 °F. In Golden, Colorado, where the elevation is about 5600 ft., water boils at 201 °F.
