IT'S ALL ABOUT WIND
What I learned about wind
What is a Local Wind?
Local Winds generally move short distances and can blow in any direction.Also, their caused by geographic features that produce temperature differences.
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
What is a Global Wind?
The combination of pressure belts and the Coriolis effect cause global winds.They are polar easterlies, prevailing westerlies, and trade winds
Wind belts that extend from the poles to 60° latitude.It's formed from cold sinking air moving from the poles creating cold temperatures.
Wind belts found between 30° and 60° latitude.It flows towards the poles from west to east carrying moist air over the United States.
Winds that blow from 30° almost to the equator.It's called the trade winds because of their use by early sailors.
More from Global Wind
Located along the equator where no winds blow because the warm rising air creates and area of low pressure
Occur at about 30° north and south of the equator where the winds are very weak.Most deserts on the Earth are located here because of the dry air.
