How Does Wind Form?


Winds are formed when the earth temperature differs in different part of the earth. Due to this air in the atmosphere also heated differently and creates a pressure differences in many places of atmosphere. These difference causes a movement of air from high pressure to low pressure area. This movement of air is called 'wind'. Also when the ocean raises due to heat, there will be a pressure difference in the atmosphere and causes air movement.

Just about every wind on Earth can be traced in cause back to the Sun. As the Sun unevenly heats the surface of the Earth, air rises and sinks, resulting in high and low regions of

Wind forms from differences in air pressure, and mixture of warm and cold air. Thanks for using
Roughly 350 million years ago, a shallow sea covered South Dakota. At that time North America was located on the earth's equator, and its climate was tropical. Gradually, the sea's

Wind form due to uneven pressure between two points. Sun's heat forms this uneven pressure. The place which gets hot has low density hence low pressure.
