What is Wind?
What I learned about wind!
High pressure is created over the ocean during the day and low pressure over land due to uneven heating. Air moves from the ocean to the land creating a sea breeze.
Low pressure occurs over the ocean during the night and high pressure over land due to
the uneven heating of earth. This causes wind to move from the land to the ocean creating a land breeze.
The combination of pressure belts and the Coriolis Effect cause global winds. These are polar easterlies, prevailing westerlies, and trade winds.
Located along the equator where no winds blow because the warm rising air creates and area of low pressure.
The jet streams are narrow belts of high speed winds that blow in the upper troposphere
and lower stratosphere. Separates warm air from cold air.
Wind belts found between 30° and 60° latitude. Flow towards the poles from west to east carrying moist air over the United States.
