Interesting facts about wind...


As Mata Hati said in his new post, the wind that wildly blowing in his house. Do you know that wind is something that we can't describe but we can see it, right? I just want to tell here some interesting facts about winds.....

  1. The atmosphere moves the earth's temperatures from one place to another creating wind.
  2. Warm air moves to the poles where it cools down.
  3. Cold air moves toward the equator (the middle) where it warms up.
  4. When winds blow really hard they're called: hurricanes, tornadoes, microbursts, zephyrs, sirocco, sharav, mistral or monsoons.
  5. Wind moves from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure.
  6. When a storm needs a ride it hops onto the high-speed wind, that is above 30,000 feet, "jet stream"
  7. Trade winds (winds that move from east to west) get sailors on ships at sea from one place to another. The westerlies blow west to east. Ships need winds to avoid the horse latitudes, areas of calm or no wind.
  8. Doldrums are calm and light baffling winds that exists north of the equator between the northern and southern trade winds in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
  9. Watch the water drain from a filled sink, the water spins in a counterclockwise direction in the northern hemisphere andclockwise in the southern hemisphere. The airflow around the spinning Earth does the same thing.
  10. Wind direction is always the direction the wind comes from. The EAST wind comes from the East
