The Importance of Barometric Pressure

Barometric Pressure, sometimes called Air Pressure or Atmospheric Pressure is the weight of air pressing down on the earth.  Barometric pressure changes from one geographical location to another.  The change causes air to move, creating areas of high pressure to low pressure. Barometric Pressure, is easily measured utilizing a Barometer.  There are essentially two forms Read More
