- Atmosphere (unit) [r]: A unit of pressure measurement (symbol: atm) defined as 101,325 pascal.
^{[e]} - Atmospheric lapse rate [r]: Refers to the change of an atmospheric variable with a change of altitude, the variable being temperature unless specified otherwise (such as pressure, density or humidity).
^{[e]} - Bar (unit) [r]: A unit of pressure measurement (symbol: bar) defined as 100,000 Pascals.
^{[e]} - Barometric formula [r]: Formula that gives the atmospheric pressure as a function of height above the surface of a planet.
^{[e]} - Earth's atmosphere [r]: An envelope of gas that surrounds the Earth and extends from the Earth's surface out thousands of kilometres, becoming increasingly thinner (less dense) with distance but always held in place by Earth's gravitational pull.
^{[e]} - International System of Units [r]: Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela.
^{[e]} - Pascal (unit) [r]: The SI unit of pressure; the force of one newton acting uniformly over an area of one square metre.
^{[e]} - Pressure [r]: A ratio equal to the force applied perpendicular to the surface of the area divided by that area (force/area).
^{[e]} - Reference conditions of gas temperature and pressure [r]: The temperature and pressure conditions that define the density of a gas and serve to document a stated gas volume.
^{[e]} - Thermodynamics [r]: The statistical description of the properties of molecular systems
^{[e]}

- International Bureau of Weights and Measures [r]: An international standards organization (commonly referred to as the BIPM) established to maintain the International System of Units (SI).
^{[e]} - Torr [r]: A non-SI unit of pressure (symbol: torr) with ratio of 760 to 1 atmosphere, selected to be approximately equal to the fluid pressure exerted by 1 millimeter of mercury (symbol: mmHg) and thus 1 torr ≈ 1 mmHg.
^{[e]} - COSPAS-SARSAT [r]: Worldwide system of multinational satellites in geosynchronous or low earth orbits, receiving stations, and search and rescue mission control systems that detect the emergency messages from emergency position indicating radio beacons (EPIRB)
^{[e]} - Barometric formula [r]: Formula that gives the atmospheric pressure as a function of height above the surface of a planet.
^{[e]} - Pascal (unit) [r]: The SI unit of pressure; the force of one newton acting uniformly over an area of one square metre.
^{[e]} - Albania [r]: Republic in south-eastern Europe (population c. 3.6 million; capital Tirana), with a long Adriatic coastline on the west and land borders with Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Greece.
