Exercise 3.4 Slope of Pressure Surfaces 1. Plot and label the altitude of each pressure surface on the vertical line above each location. Connect the points for each pressure surface to visualize the slope. Plot the altitude of the phenomena listed in the second table on the vertical line to the right of the diagram. 2. 3. The pressure surfaces slope toward lower altitudes in which direction? 4. Based on the slope of the pressure surfaces, would the temperature in North Dakota be warmer or colder than the temperature in Texas? Why? Approximate Altitude (m) Southern Texas 1,540 3,200 5,500 9,800 North Dakota. 1,480 2,900 5,200 9,200 Nebraska 850 mb 700 mb 500 mb 300 mb 1,500 3,100 5,400 9,500 250 mb 200 mb 11,000 12,500 10,600 12,000 10,300 11,500 Mt.
