Pressure Affects The Landscape

Differences in pressure from one area to another causes air to move about quickly in an attempt to equal out the different pressures. This rushing of air is what we know as wind. Pressure differences also create differences in temperature. Together, wind and temperature can have a substantial effect on the landscape around us.

Pressure causes wind to pick up dust, and change the landscape.

Wind has the ability to pick up and transport small amounts of dust and rocks. Over time, the wind can completely change what a particular location looks like. Temperature differences can also effect how an area looks, both in the short term and in the long term.
