To understand the characteristics of local winds better, make a chart of the 7 types of local winds and list some similarities and differences between these wind types.
Winds are formed by the differential heating of Earth's surface, whether it's due to the difference in water and land, the difference with altitude, or something else.
- Local winds result from air moving between small low and high pressure systems.
- Created by a variety of conditions.
- Water has a very high specific heat, so it maintains its temperature well.
