Wet bulb depression(WBD) = dry bulb temperature(DBT) - wet bulb temperature(WBT).

Dew point depression(DPD) = dry bulb temperature(DBT) - dew point temperature(DPT).

The wet-bulb depression (WBD) is the difference in temperature between the ambient air temperature (Ta) and the wet-bulb temperature.

The wet-bulb depression is the difference between the dry-bulb temperature and the wet-bulb temperature. If there is 100% humidity, dry-bulb and wet-bulb temperatures are identical, making the wet-bulb depression equal to zero in such conditions.

@Mohnesh please don't post wrong answers here.

The difference between dry bulb temperature and wet bulb temperature is called wet bulb depression.

Due point depression = dry bulb temperature- due point temperature.
