What Is a Depression in Geography?

Answer

A depression is an area in the atmosphere in which the pressures are lower than those of the surrounding area at the same level. The development of depressions takes place when warm air from sub-tropical regions mix with cold air of the polar areas. The mid-Atlantic is a common meeting point of the cold air of the Polar Regions and the warmer air of the sub-tropical regions. There are various types of depressions that include polar lows, thundery Lows and Lee Lows.
