What is Wind

Wind: Is the movement of air caused by differences in air pressure

What is Air Pressure Caused By:

Air pressure is caused by:

  • The differences air pressure are caused by the uneven heating of earth

  • The greater the difference of air pressure, the faster the movement of air

Global and Local Winds

Global winds are the combination of pressure belts and the Coriolis Effect.

Global winds are caused from:

  • The heat currents in a fluid: convection, the convection currents on a large scale makes global winds.

Local winds are winds that generally move short distances that can blow in different directions

Local winds are caused by geographic features that produces differences in temperature differences.
