Global Wind, Local Winds,Land, and Sea breezes By Rachel

Global Winds

Global winds are only blows in the same direction each day. The Global winds are effected by the Coriolis effect. It causes it to travel north to curve to the east and winds traveling south to curve to the west. The polar easterlies, westerlies, and the trade winds are all types of Global winds.

Local winds

Imagine a hot day at a beach, do you think that the land or the water would heat up better?Well if you choose the land then you are right because the warmer air over land rises, while the cooler air over the ocean rushes in to take its place. this is called the sea breeze.

land breeze

think of a after sunset, the land would cool down faster than the water because the warmer air over the ocean rises, while the cooler air over land rushes into take its place.

A land breeze is a breeze that blows from the land to the sea and occurs at night because

the land cools faster than water.
