The shift in atmospheric pressure causes the temperature reduction in mountainous areas.


PRESSURE and TEMPERATURE are related. Pressure and temperature both fluctuate. 

 Pressure drop as we ascend the HILL


Water Vapour content.

The source of the atmospheric pressure will tell us why pressure drops with altitude. 


PRESSURE is a contraction of PRESS. The AIR above our EARTH'S surface PRESSES UP on it. 

Gravity is greatest at sea level and diminishes upward. As we climb the slope, the atmospheric pressure lowers.


Pressure drop reduces TEMPERATURE. Because increasing pressure means more particles or molecules in the space
