On a British Ordnance Survey map 'contour lines' indicate the height above sea level and a 'trig point' indicates the top of a mountain or other high point.
it is Elevation
800mb (now hectoPascals) is approx. 6500ft or 2000m above sea level. It is not a well-used Standard Level, as 850hPa is close and the next one is 700hPa.
Depends on the temperature, but it is usually somewhere around 1000 meters. You can use the hydrostatic equation to be more precise.
If you don't want to drown, it is useful if that is positive.
it is 1 . 2 million okay It's called elevation.
The term for a geographic locations height above sea level isaltitude. In geography this is the vertical distance above sealevel. However, it may also be called the elevation …because ingeography it is defined as a specific point's height on the Earth'ssurface in relation to sea level.
Elevation. "The elevation of a geographic location is its height above a fixed reference point, often the mean sea level."
That is the location's "elevation".
