What are winds. wind is caused by unequal heating of the earth. There are two types of winds global and local. global winds are winds that blow across continents wind follow curved patterns due to the Coriolis effect. local winds are only in a small area due to local heat patterns. read more to find out more about winds and breezes.

local winds and sea breeze

local winds is when the warmer air over land rises, while the cooler air over the ocean rushes in to take its place. this wind is called a sea,or onshore breeze. local winds are different from global winds. local winds are caused by unequal heating within a small area. Also local winds that generally move short distances and can blow from any direction. Sea breezes are breezes that blow from the sea to land and occurs during the day ,because water heats up at slower rate then land. next up global winds!

global winds

Global winds are major winds that blow from one direction over long distances. The Corialis effect causes winds traveling north to curve to the east and winds traveling south to curve to the west. Polar easterlies, weststerlies , and trade winds are all types of global winds. next up land breezes!

land breeze

Land breezes are warmer air over the ocean rises, while the cooler air over land rushes in to take its place. This wind is called a land , or offshore breeze. After sunset, the land cools down faster then the water.

Now you know about local and global wind and sea and land breezes. local winds only blow in a small area due to local heat patterns and global winds blow across continents winds follow curved patterns due to the coriolis effect. sea breeze warm air rises and the cooler air over the ocean rushes in to take its place. Land breeze is when the water is warmer then the land. thats all about the power of wind and breezes.
