Title: Wind Pattern Development.
Caption: This animation has three main parts that all relate to wind patterns. The first part examines a pressure gradient in three aspects: a hypothetical pressure gradient only, an upper-atmosphere wind pattern, and a lower-atmosphere wind pattern. The same three aspects are examined in the next two parts: high-pressure cells and low-pressure cells.
Keywords: air pressures, atmospheric pressures, geostrophic winds, pressure-gradient force, Coriolis force, gradient winds, cyclonic flow, anticyclonic flow, cyclonic winds, anticyclonic winds, high-pressure cells, low-pressure cells
