global and local winds
Blow across continents winds due to the Coriolis effect. The Coriolis effect causes winds traveling north to curve to the east and winds traveling to the west. Polar easterlies, westerlies, and trade winds are all types of global winds. Global winds blow in the same direction every day. Global winds are really large air masses that are created mainly as a result of the earth’s rotation, the shape of the earth and the sun’s heating power.
