(See The Wide World of Fluids article titled Weather,barometers, and bars, Section 2.5.) The record low sea-level barometricpressure ever recorded is 25.8 in. of mercury. At what altitudein the standard atmosphere is the pressure equal to this value?
Ch. 1 Earth’s Dynamic Surface (pgs 513) The Hydrosphere is the PRIMARY DRIVER of geomorphic processes. Amount of Energy received by Earth is measured in Watts/m^2 Factors controlling the mean temperature of Earth is: 1) Solar heat flux 2) Earth’s distance from the sun 3) Planet’s albedo 4) Presence and composition of Earth’s atmosphere Atmosphere raises the mean temperature of Earth by 33 degrees C. Climate is measured as the mean temp in an area over 30 years. Hydrostatic Equilibrium all pressure gradients are equalized within a sphere In Earth, the mantle works towards hydrostatic equilibrium against flattening effects driven by centrifugal forces of Earth’s spinning, that carries mass towards equator over long periods of t
