- Local winds are a type of wind that blow over a small area.
- They are created by the unequal heating of Earth's surface over a small area.
- Sea breezes blow from the sea to the land.
- Land breezes blow from the land to the sea.
- Global winds are a type of wind that blows over a very large area, the Earth!
- The many types are all created by two things. The Coriolis effect, which is caused by the rotation of the Earth as well as a large convection current between the poles and the Equator, and the unequal heating of the Earth's surface over a large area.
- The Doldrums are calm areas around the Equator created by the large convection currents from the poles to the Equator.
- A type of global wind that blows away from the horse latitudes towards the polar regions.
