Information about Winds by Aleesa Jordan
Land breezes blow from land to the body of water before them, the heat from the water goes with the coolness of the air and that's how it passes by. Land breezes happen at night.
It's the same as the land breeze, but it happens during the day. Cold water to hot air equals sea breeze!
Land Breezes happen in the evening, this figure will help you understand Land Breezes.
Sea Breezes happen during the day, this figure will help you understand Sea Breezes
Global Winds include Doldrums, Horse Latitudes, Trade Winds, Prevailing Westerlies, Polar Easterlies, and Jet streams. I will be explaining only a few of these.
Welcome to the World of Winds
Doldrums are at the Equator, (0 degrees latitude) Doldrums winds are very weak.
Trade Winds are very strong, people, like sailors, used these winds to move cargo to different countries for trading goods.
Jet Streams are bands of very strong winds in the upper troposphere. Airplanes use the jet streams to travel places faster, and save fuel.
Polar Easterlies blow from the south and north pole, and the winds are very weak. They also go from east to west.
