ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE VARIATIONS IN THE NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAINS

Abstract

After the conclusion of the 2017 annual meeting of the Georgia Academy of Science at Young Harris College, the authors measured atmospheric pressure during part of their trip home using a Vernier probe. The instrument was turned on near city hall in Hiawassee, Georgia (elevation 601 m or 1,972 ft) and recorded atmospheric pressure in the car every 0.5 seconds as the authors traveled to the parking lot at Brasstown Bald, the highest mountain (elevation of 1,458 m or 4,784 ft) in Georgia. The probe was carried as the authors rode a bus from the parking area to the viewing platform at the top of the mountain. Data show when the authors were not changing elevation and a pressure differential of 10 kPa between the starting point and the top of the view platform.
