Climatological station pressure

From Glossary of Meteorology



climatological station pressure

The atmospheric pressure computed for the level of the climatological station elevation.

This is employed so that all climatic records for a given location have a common reference, and it may or may not be the same as station pressure.
See also actual pressure, sea level pressure.
