Unformatted text preview: • pressure is measured in the atmosphere by measuring the height of a fixed pressure value. • in high pressure systems, pressure is always highest at the center. pressure is lowest at the center in low pressure systems. [3-dimensional] • due to the coriolis force, wind from a high pressure system will blow parallel to the isobars [clockwise in the NH, because of deflection to the right]. winds from low pressure system blow counterclockwise. • high pressure circulation is congruous with the general circulation ← 08/04/2008 01:09:00 ← 08/04/2008 01:09:00 ←...
