Semi-permanent pressure systems Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
A relatively stable, stationary pressure-and-wind system where the pressure is predominately high or low with the changing season. They are not of a transitory nature, like migratory lows that develop from temperature and density differences. Examples include the Icelandic Low and the Bermuda High in the North Atlantic.
