The Role of Upper-Level Winds in the Formation of High-Pressure Systems

The Role of Upper-Level Winds in the Formation of High-Pressure Systems
Summary
  • High-pressure systems in the Great Basin can originate from small surface high-pressure zones if there is a convergence zone in the upper-level winds.
  • Upper-level winds, known as Upper Ridges and Upper Troughs, contribute to the formation of high-pressure and low-pressure systems respectively.
  • Areas of slow-velocity air are depicted as green, while areas of fast-moving air are shown as red in visual representations. The convergence of wind leads to denser air, which subsides towards the surface and creates high-pressure systems.
