How Low Is Death Valley?

Answer

Badwater Basin, located in Death Valley, is 282 feet below sea level. The atmospheric pressure is higher at the low altitudes than it is at normal sea level. The Death Valley is a subtropical desert climate. When the air at ground level is heated, it rises and moves up past the high mountain ranges. It then cools lightly and sinks back down towards the valley. The air is then reheated by the sun and moves up the mountain again, up and down similar as to how a convection oven works.
