Atmospheric Pressure At The Equator

Atmospheric Pressure At The Equator. The density of air or atmospheric density, denoted ρ (greek: The climate near the equator is so warm because this area receives the highest amount of solar radiation, or energy from the sun, throughout the year.

The magnitude of the daily cycle is greatest. The air eventually stops rising and spreads north and south towards the earth's poles. The pressure is at its lowest and near its peak around 10 a.m./p.m.

The middle of the night is usually the time the lowest air pressure is observed, while the middle of the day is the time at which the highest daily air pressure is observed. Here, air is heated and rises, leaving low pressure areas behind. The air eventually stops rising and spreads north and south towards the earth's poles. The most basic change in pressure is the twice daily rise and fall in due to the heating from the sun.
