Weather Workbook: Air Density

Weather Workbook

In this Weather Workbook video, StormTracker 6 meteorologist Diane Phillips explains air density.

Air density is directly related to air pressure. The higher you go in the Earth’s atmosphere, the lower the air density will be. That is because there are fewer gas molecules in the higher altitudes and that makes the air less dense.
