Air naturally in motion with any degree of velocity; a current of air.
Air artificially put in motion by any force or action; as, the wind of a cannon ball; the wind of a bellows.
Air or gas generated in the stomach or bowels; flatulence; as, to be troubled with wind.
Air impregnated with an odor or scent.
A disease of sheep, in which the intestines are distended with air, or rather affected with a violent inflammation. It occurs immediately after shearing.
To perceive or follow by the scent; to scent; to nose; as, the hounds winded the game.
A generic term used to describe the compressed air supplied by the Blower. Wind is delivered to the Chambers via metal air ducts where it is connected to Regulators and then to the Wind chests to blow the organ's pipes. The wind pressure one major thing that distinguishes a Theatre Organ form a Concert/Church Organ. Theatre organs are usually voiced and play at from 8 inches of water up to as high as 100 inches of water. A concert/church organ are voiced and play at from about one and a half inches to around five inches of water Wind is measured in inches of water in the US and UK. In other countries in Europe and Asia, it is measured in millimeters of water. Approximately 27 inches of water is equal to 1 pound per square inch (PSI)
The horizontal motion of the air past a given point.
Air in motion moving around you. A kitesurfer needs typically 8-10 kts of wind to kitesurf.
Air moving horizontally and/or vertically.
air motion, dominantly horizontal relative to the Earth’s surface
horizontal movement of air over the Earth's surface that is created when cool, heavy air moves toward warm, light air.
The movement of air across the ground surface as a consequence of natural forces.
Horizontal motion of air near the surface of the Earth.
A woodwind or brass instrument (an instrument played by blowing into it or otherwise setting the air in motion inside it with one's lips).
flow of moving air.
air moving (sometimes with considerable force) from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure; "trees bent under the fierce winds"; "when there is no wind, row"; "the radioactivity was being swept upwards by the air current and out into the atmosphere"
a musical instrument in which the sound is produced by an enclosed column of air that is moved by the breath
catch the scent of; get wind of; "The dog nosed out the drugs"
the movement of air along the ground. Light air movements are called breezes.
Movement of air as a result of unequal zones of air pressure caused unequal heating of the air by the sun. Wind is an indirect form of sol
To catch the scent of game.
The horizontal movement of the air related to the surface of the earth. In meteorology, the specified wind direction is that, relative to true geographic North, from which the winds blow. Wind direction : Northerly : Wind from 337.6 to 22.5 degrees North easterly : Wind from 22.6 to 67.5 degrees Easterly : Wind from 67.6 to 112.5 degrees South easterly : Wind from 112.6 to 157.5 degrees Southerly : Wind from 157.6 to 202.5 degrees South westerly : Wind from 202.6 to 247.5 degrees Westerly : Wind from 247.6 to 292.5 degrees North westerly : Wind from 292.6 to 337.5 degrees
Air flowing horizontally (with respect to the Earth's surface.)
A moving mass of air. The movement of the air causes the weather
The horizontal motion of air caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere combined with the rotation of the earth.
a smooth flowing movement of air that flows horizontally.
A natural motion of the air, especially a noticeable current of air moving in the atmosphere parallel to the Earth's surface. Winds are caused by unequal heating and cooling of the Earth and atmosphere due to absorbed, incoming solar radiation and infrared radiation lost to space--as modified by such effects as the Coriolis force, the condensation of water vapor, the formation of clouds, the interaction of air masses and frontal systems, friction over land and water, etc. The preceding chart is an abbreviated version of the Beaufort Wind Scale, named for the British admiral who invented it in 1805.
The movement of air. Wind when measured is usually measured as the horizontal component of the wind speed (parallel to Earth's surface).
a natural movement of air at a velocity relative to the surface of the earth
Moving air. The wind's movement is caused by the sun's heat, the earth, and the oceans, forcing air to rise and fall in cycles.
General circulation of air moving from an area of high barometric pressure to an area of lower pressure.
Air in motion that moves relatively horizontally in relationship to the surface of the Earth.
Air in motion relative to the surface of the earth. Almost exclusively used to denote the horizontal component.
Air motion relative to the Earth's surface. Unless otherwise specified, only the horizontal component is considered.
Air in motion relative to the earth's surface; normally horizontal motion.
The movement and circulation of Earth's atmosphere near its surface; moving air.
Wind is a common pregnancy complaint, particularly in the first and third trimesters. It's caused both by swallowing air and by the hormone progesterone slowing down the digestive system. Later in pregnancy pressure from your growing womb on the digestive tract can also cause digestive discomfort. Everybody releases wind each day, but there are steps you can take to relieve the excessive wind that can occur during pregnancy. Find out more...
Air in motion relative to the surface of the earth. Since vertical components of atmospheric motion are relatively small, especially near the surface of the earth, meteorologists use the term to denote almost exclusively the horizontal component. Vertical winds are usually identified as such. Surface winds are measured by anemometer and wind vane; winds aloft by such systems as pilot balloon, radiosonde, or aircraft navigational techniques. See also circulation, general circulation, turbulence, geostrophic wind, gradient wind, local winds, Beaufort wind scale, draft, cyclone, whirlwind, squall, storm.
Air in motion. From still (no wind) to a breeze (slight wind) to a gale (mighty wind).
Air flowing horizontally with respect to Earth's surface from high pressure areas to lower pressure areas. The windiest place on Earth is on the coast of Antarctica, where, at Cape Dennison, the yearly average wind speed is 44 miles per hour! To appreciate the power of wind, consider that on on March 10, 1869 high winds caused red snow to fall over central France! Apparently, high winds swept reddish dust from the Sahara desert all the way into France, where it became mixed with snow. They called it "blood snow". Another amazing fact: In February 1965, a "ghost train" moved across the prairies of North Dakota (on tracks), as strong prevailing winds pushed five empty cars about 90 miles from Portal to Minot! The strongest wind ever measured at the ground with a cup anemometer occurred on New Hampshire's Mt. Washington, when on April 12, 1934, a momentary gust reached 231mph
Air in motion, important to aviation because it influences flight to a certain degree.
Wind is the movement of atmospheric air on a planet. The wind is caused by the different temperatures (and therefore air pressure differences) around a planet - this is caused by the Sun. Other causes of the wind are the temperature differential over the land and over seas, the topography of the land (hills, mountains, plains, etc.), and the rotation of the Earth (which causes the Coriolis force). Air moves from areas of high pressure to aras of low pressure.
Air that flows in relation to the earth's surface, generally horizontally. There are four areas of wind that are measured: direction, speed, character (gusts and squalls), and shifts. Surface winds are measured by wind vanes and anemometers, while upper level winds are detected through pilot balloons, rawin, or aircraft reports.
Wind is the rough horizontal movement of air (as opposed to an air current) caused by uneven heating of the Earth's surface. It occurs at all scales, from local breezes generated by heating of land surfaces and lasting tens of minutes to global winds resulting from solar heating of the Earth. The two major influences on the atmospheric circulation are the differential heating between the equator and the poles, and the rotation of the planet (Coriolis effect).
Wind is a song by the Japanese popular music singer Akeboshi. It is considered by many to be his most famous song. The title means "to wind", not wind (movement of air).
