The back, or top of the back; a crest.
A range of hills or mountains, or the upper part of such a range; any extended elevation between valleys.
a narrow highland between valleys, coves, or hollows; often terminates in a view or point: Crystal Ridge, Pitcher Ridge, Cline Ridge.
English, On a single edged sword blade, the narrow edge opposite the cutting edge; on a double edged sword blade, the strong point between the two cutting surfaces running the length of the blade.
An extension of an anticyclone or high-pressure area shown on a pressure chart, corresponding with a ridge running out from the side of a mountain.
A region of anticyclonic curvature of winds in the atmosphere located around a high pressure area. A ridge in the upper atmosphere is generally associated with dry and warm weather.
A long, narrow elevation of the land surface, usually sharply crested with steep sides forming and extended upland between valleys.
Often recognized as a "Ridge of High Pressure". A ridge is an area of generally high atmospheric pressure. Ridges occur at all levels in the atmosphere. Upper level ridges represent fair weather. Upper level ridges are also favorable environments in the tropics for tropical storms to grow due to less amounts of shear.
An elevated area of the sea floor in the center of an ocean basin with rugged topography, a central rift-valley and recurring seismic activity. Ridges generally stand about 1000 meters to 3000 meters above the adjacent ocean floor and are about 1500 kilometers in width.
Long, narrow or crested elevation on a bone, such as the nose. Prominent ridges are called crests.
an elongated mountain crest (usually narrow)
An elongated area of relatively high atmospheric pressure. Generally associated with light winds and clear weather.
A relatively narrow elevation which is prominent because of the steep angle at which it rises; an elongated crest, or series of crests, with or without individual peaks, significantly higher than the adjoining ground.
a long narrow natural elevation or striation
a long narrow range of hills
a like a mountain range
a line of high ground that normally has minor variations along its crest (fig
a long, narrow section of something
a path in the Lyapunov landscape that, while it may (and usually does) go up and down in its tangent direction, definitely drops off steeply on either side
A high dividing point coming away from a mountain
A surface high steered by the jet stream. Ridges bring generally warm, clear weather. When looking at a weather map, you can recognize a ridge by its shape ().
A high pressure air mass that blocks the motion of the jet stream is a ridge.
A long and narrow stretch of elevated ground. It generally has a length less than 16 kilometres.
A ridge (of high pressure), also termed a wedge, is and extension of an anticyclone of high-pressure area shown on a weather chart, corresponding with a ridge running out from the side of a mountain. It is the converse of a trough of low pressure and is generally associated with fine anticyclonic-type weather.
An elongated region of high pressure.
an elongated high pressure area in the atmosphere that lies between two low pressure areas.
a long, narrow stretch of high ground. [ return to the top
A REGION OF UNUSUALLY HIGH 500-HPA HEIGHT.
string of high spots from uncle sam bank to thetis bank.
An elongated area of relatively high atmospheric pressure extending from the center of a high-pressure region. see also: Surface High
An elongated area of high atmospheric pressure, running generally north-south, at the surface or aloft.
The raised markings found across the fingertip. See also 'Valley'.
A hill that is proportionally longer than it is wide, generally with steeply sloping sides.
an elongated area of relatively high atmospheric pressure; the opposite of a trough
An elongated area of high pressure that normally runs north and south.
A long, narrow elevation of the land surface, usually sharp crested with steep sides and forming an extended upland between valleys.
An elongated area of high pressure. Back to the top
An elongated area of high pressure in the atmosphere.
a long narrow elevation with steep sides RDGU
a long narrow hilltop; low in elevation.
(Ridge of High Pressure) Region of the atmosphere in which the pressure is high relative to the surrounding region at the same level.
a long narrow hill-top; low in elevation.
An elongated area of relatively high atmospheric pressure; also called ridge line.
elevation with a narrow, elongated crest which can be part of a hill or mountain (crest, cuesta, escarpment, hogback, lae, rim, spur).
an elongated area of relatively high pressure that is typically associated with a anti-cyclonic wind shift.
Landform. A long narrow upper section or crest; a long narrow chain of hills or mountains. An area of high ground separating two canyon formed by erosion on both sides. Ridges range in size from those between small gullies to the crest of an entire mountain range. Also called ridgeline.
An area of high pressure. An area of anticyclonically curving winds.
High pressure aloft, or high pressure at the surface. Dry air masses are found under an upper level ridge. Generally fair weather is found in a surface high pressure ridge.
(on land) a range of hills or mountains (on the ocean floor) an elongated elevation on the ocean bottom
A relatively narrow elevation which is prominent on account of the steep angle at which it rises. The narrow, elongated crest of a hill or mountain; an elongated hill; a range of hills or mountains.
a long, narrow chain of hills or mountains. [AHDOS
in meteorology, an elongated area of relatively high atmospheric pressure, almost always associated with and most clearly identified as an area of maximum anticyclonic curvature of wind flow.
A ridge is a geological feature that features a continuous elevational crest for some distance. Ridges are usually termed hills or mountains as well, depending on size.
