Abstract:

Much of the Earth would be uninhabitable without wind. This Science Screen Report studies air in motion and the crucial role of that dynamic, ever-present phenomenon. Illustrating how varying temperature and atmospheric pressure create wind, the program examines local examples in the form of offshore and onshore breezes, as well as global patterns like the trade winds and westerlies. Includes information on ocean currents, cloud formations, and the vital part wind plays in distributing nutrients, seeds, heat, and cool air.
