In geography, local relief is the topographic variation of a specific area. Since few areas have a consistent elevation in their topography, a relief map can be used to represent the increases and decreases in elevation. More »

Differences in temperature causing differences in air density lead to differences in air pressure. As the temperatures of portions of the atmosphere increase, the air in these portions expands and rises, causing low-pres... More »

The factors that affect the temperature in an area are the latitude, height above sea level, distance from the sea, ocean currents and prevailing winds. These things work together to determine the climate of a location. More »

Cold fronts move faster than warm fronts because their cooler temperature increases the density of the air and concentration of molecules. Warm fronts are sometimes nearly motionless when cold fronts take them over. This... More »

Read a wind-chill factor chart by plotting the ambient air temperature against the wind speed, resulting in the apparent temperature felt on exposed human skin. Generally, higher wind speeds at colder temperatures result... More »
