Isobar drawing practice
1. Review: Contour drawing. Draw the 400, 450, and 500 contours on the image below:
2. Draw the 996, 1000, 1004 isobars, then label where you think the LOW pressure (L) and the HIGH pressure (H) areas are
3. Draw the 1012, 1016, 1020, and 1024 isobars on the map below, then draw an H and an L to represent highest pressure area and lowest pressure area. Finally, draw arrows to represent the direction of air movement around the highs and the lows.
4.Does air move toward Low pressure areas or away from Low pressure areas?
5.Does air move clockwise or counterclockwise around Low pressure areas? (Northern hemisphere)
6.Do you think the L area has good(clear) weather or bad(unpleasant) weather?
7.Draw arrows to represent the direction of air movement (Northern Hemisphere)
