High-pressure area Current Affairs, GK & News
Areas of high pressure can sometimes be very slow moving, almost stationary. Such a region of slow moving air can prevent other, faster moving pressure systems from moving into a region. For this reason they are known as blocking highs or blocking anticyclones. The part of the earth’s surface beneath a blocking high often experiences ..
An anti-cyclone also known as a high pressure area is a large atmospheric circulation system with the wind flowing clockwise around it in the Northern Hemisphere, an counter-clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. Anticyclones form from air masses cooling more than their surroundings, which causes the air to contract slightly making the air more dense. Since ..
