subtropical high

[‚səb′träp·ə·kəl ′hī]
(meteorology)
One of the semipermanent highs of the subtropical high-pressure belt; these highs appear as centers of action on mean charts of surface pressure; they lie over oceans and are best developed in the summer season. Also known as oceanic anticyclone; oceanic high; subtropical anticyclone.

During El Nino events, pressure is anomalously low over the eastern sector of the Pacific, particularly in the domain of the subtropical high (Aceituno 1988).
Remember that the whole reason the subtropical high is there is because the Coriolis force is piling up air.
Model ability to simulate large-scale dynamical features such as the North American monsoon (for the Southwest) and the North Atlantic subtropical high (for the Southeast) is critical to simulating trends in long-term summer drought risk for those regions and CMIP5 models vary in the accuracy of their simulations of these features
