What are planetary wind belts?

Answer

A planetary wind is any wind system of the earth's atmosphere, which owes its existence and direction to solar radiation and the rotation of the earth. Planetary winds blow constantly in a particular direction throughout the year and are also known as prevailing winds. Planetary winds include the trade winds, countertrades and the prevailing westerly winds.
