A fictitious temperature between the station and sea-level has to be assumed and in mountain areas this commonly causes bias in the calculated mean sea-level pressure (see Note 4). The mean sea-level pressure (p0) can be estimated from the total mass of the atmosphere (M, the mean acceleration due to gravity (g0) and the mean earth radius (R): P0 = g0 (M/4 π RE2) where the denominator is the surface area of a spherical earth. 36 ϫ 106 m), we find p0 = 105 kg ms–2 = 105 Nm–2, or 105 Pa. Hence the mean sea-level pressure is approximately 105 Pa or 1000 mb.
