In the case of Hurricane Harvey, these include the warm ocean that provided energy for the storm; the elevated sea level on top of which the storm surge occurred; the atmospheric pressure pattern that contributed to the storm's stalling over the coast; and the atmospheric water vapour that provided moisture for the record-setting precipitation.
On the other hand, when the operator can look at a graph of pressure versus time, the trend of the pressure pattern becomes immediately obvious.
For example, we found that the atmospheric pressure pattern that occurred over Russia during the 2010 heat wave has become more likely in recent decades, and that global warming has contributed to those odds," said co-author Daniel Horton, an assistant professor at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and a former postdoc in Diffenbaugh's lab who has led research on the influence of atmospheric pressure patterns on surface temperature extremes.
Plantar pressure pattern can indicate the condition of the biomechanics of foot and ankle.
Specifically, most low ridge-density seasons with the exception of 2008-09 were characterized by wide high-pressure anomalies over the Hudson Strait, a pressure pattern that could create winds which would facilitate the flow of ice through the strait.

At the same time, the additional snow cover has triggered a kind of feedback loop by changing what's called the Arctic Oscillation, the air pressure pattern that determines winter weather in the Northern Hemisphere.
