Study of air tides: phases of the moon
versus barometric pressure

Introduction
Every object in the world is constantly subject to gravitational forces by other objects specially large bodies such as planets and moons.

One of the major affects of the moon's gravity on the earth is known as a tide. A tide is a shift of the earth's surface water toward the moon. 

 

A similar thing happens to the air layer that covers the earth. The air layer is always shifted toward the direction of the moon. 

In this project we will study the effects of air tides on air pressure.

 
 Project description
In this project you will study air tides and try to compare the air pressure in different phases of  the moon.
