Wind Currents

Wind Currents

Natural Phenomenon

During the day, due to the strong sun, the air above the surface of the earth gets heated and rises, creating a region of low pressure in that area. When the warm air reaches the upper levels of the troposphere, it gets cooled, sinks and rushes...Show More
Rock Cycle
