What is different between a land breeze and a sea breeze?

The terms Land Breeze and Sea Breeze refer to the directions from which the breeze comes. The causes of the two different breezes are the relative differences in temperatures of the masses from which they originate. During the day, the land is generally heated to temperatures that exceed the temperature of the adjacent sea causing a flow of air from the cooler sea towards the warmer land where the air is rising. This is called a Sea Breeze because the air is moving from the sea towards the land. Conversely, in the evening as the land mass cools more rapidly than the adjacent water, the flow is reversed and air from the cooler land mass moves towards the warmer (and hence rising) air mass over the sea. This, then, is called a Land Breeze as it moves from the land towards the sea.
