Abstract : Investigation of short period air pressure micro-oscillations and their relation to synoptic weather patterns have been undertaken at Saint Louis University during the past twenty six years. The early investigators grouped the very short period oscillations (one through twenty seconds) into one class and attributed these to either turbulence associated with large values of horizontal wind speed or convective activity. Within the past year a study was made of microbarographic data recorded at Florissant, Missouri subdividing this single classification of short period micro-oscillations and analyzing the periods in the one to ten second range associated with the passage of cold fronts.
