Middle Troposphere—Troughs and Ridges
Lecture no. 15 from the course: Meteorology: An Introduction to the Wonders of the Weather
Taught by Professor Robert G. Fovell | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Shift your eyes to the sky and examine what happens in a higher level of the atmosphere called the middle troposphere. With this examination, you discover two new features in large weather systems—troughs and ridges that occur in areas of very low and very high pressure—and see how these features affect the weather.
