when the winds eventually blow over the land, they moderate the temperature of the air over the land.

A primary cause for surface winds on the earth is the Earths Rotation.


high winds are normally caused by the unequal heating of the earths surface.



Surface current are formed by surface winds (not in the ocean) but deep ocean currents are affected by thermohaline circulation (in the ocean).


Local winds are winds that blow over short distances caused by unequal heating of the earths surface in a small area.


Local winds are winds that blow over short distances caused by unequal heating of the earths surface in a small area.


The ocean stores huge quantities of energy . This energy and the heat exchange between the ocean and atmosphere drives the winds and atmospheric circulation around the world. These winds drive ocean surface currents.


Global winds are winds that blow From the poles, in which they act as a heat transfer system. Global winds are due to the unequal heating of earths surface


Global winds drag on the ocean's surface causing it to move and build up in the direction the wind is blowing.


Ocean currents as well as winds distribute heat and moisture around the earth. Winds can bring in cold fronts or warm fronts.


Continental deflections,the Coriolis effect and global winds all effect surface ocean currents.


well, one way that heat is transported in the biosphere is the unequal heating of the Earths Surface drives winds and ocean currents, which transport throughout the biosphere.




The storm surge occurs when the winds of a hurricane raise the ocean surface, which can the flood coastal areas.


local winds-are winds that blow over short distances caused by unequal heating of the earths surface in a small area. global winds-are winds that blow around the earth from the north pole to the south pole.

it would be more hot and the ocean would be warmer or coller



Air pressure toward regions of lower air pressure


Unequal heating over earths surface in a small to medium sized area cause local winds. These winds are very short lived usually not longer than a day.


It causes wind, with help from the moon's gravitational pull it causes ocean currents and it also helps with the seasons and weather.Windsconvection currentsUnequal heating of the earth's surface results in wind. That is what happens, if that's your question.



Convection currents distribute heat in the oceans by global winds
