Global Barometric Pressure
Low pressure
o Air rising from surface creates low pressure
o Low pressure is associated with high precipitation and cloud cover
o Wet biomes are associated with global pressure centers
o Area of equatorial low pressure is the Intertropical Convergence
Zone (ITCZ)
Sun heats air at the equator,
the hot air rises, and low
pressure is created
High pressure
o Sinking cold dense air creates high pressure
o Air flow from two Hadley cells comes together and the air sinks,
causing high pressure

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
