Atmospheric Pressure and Circulation
1. Pressure gradient force, The Coriolis Effect, and friction work together to balance the Earth's pressure. The Earth is heated unevenly and wind works to even the disproportion.
Introduction to the Atmosphere
Starting at sea level, temperature steadily decreases while altitude increases
throughout the troposphere. Here it remains constant until 20 km into the stratosphere where temperature begins to increase with a
