    Air moving between regions of different pressure is called wind. Temperature differences between regions, the result of variations in the solar energy received at the surface of the Earth, cause the pressure differences that drive winds. The rotation of the Earth affects the direction of winds in what is called the Coriolis Effect. The movement of air from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. 5. Doppler radar devices can give a reading of the ____ winds from the ground to an altitude of ten miles.

    Climate - Climate - Atmospheric pressure and wind: Atmospheric pressure and wind are both significant controlling factors of Earth’s weather and climate. Although these two physical variables may at first glance appear to be quite different, they are in fact closely related. Wind exists because of horizontal and vertical differences (gradients) in pressure, yielding a . As air rises, the pressure lowers and surrounding air moves in to replace it, causing wind. The more the pressure changes over a given distance, usually the faster the wind will be. This is called pressure gradient force. If there is a large pressure difference between two points that are far away, the wind speeds will be lower than if those.

    The PGF sets air in motion and determines wind speed. The higher the pressure gradient, the greater the wind speed as shown in the diagram below. In the diagram's left panel, the total pressure change is 8 mb ( - mb), causing relatively light winds. In your worksheet, select the columns that contain Air Pressure and Wind Speed. Click the Chart Wizard icon, or click Insert on Excel's menu bar and choose Chart.. Under Chart type, select XY (Scatter); under Chart sub-type, select the Scatter option.. Click the Next > button.. On Step 2 of 4, the Columns button should be selected. Click the Next > button.

Wind and Air Pressure. Key scientific skills and knowledge always come into play in this series, from recognizing weather patterns and gathering weather data to making a rain collection gauge. Readers discover how today's advanced weather images and data collection systems are being used to more accurately forecast and prepare for weather events.3/5(1).

Wind Wind results from a horizontal difference in air pressure and since the sun heats different parts of the Earth differently, causing pressure differences, the Sun is the driving force for most winds.

The wind is a result of forces acting on the atmosphere: 1. Pressure Gradient Force (PGF) - causes horizontal pressure differences and winds 2. Introduces wind and air pressure and their role in the weather, describes methods of measuring both phenomena, and suggests related activities.

Since warm air is less dense and creates less air pressure, it will rise; cold air is denser and creates greater air pressure, and so it will sink. When warm air rises, cooler air will often move in to replace it, so wind often moves from areas where it's colder to areas where it's warmer.
