A coastal breeze blowing from land to sea, usually at night when the sea surface is warmer than the adjacent land.
local wind blowing from land to water during the night
Local thermal circulation pattern found at the interface between land and water. In this circulation system, surface winds blow from land to water during the night.
A coastal breeze at night blowing from land to sea, caused by the difference in the rates of cooling of their respective surfaces.
A coastal breeze which flows from land to sea, usually at night. It forms as continental air cools below the temperature of a nearby maritime airmass and sets up a thermally driven circulation. The land breeze is occasionally refered to as a katabatic wind. See also Sea breeze. The land breeze is generally lighter than a sea breeze, around 5-10 knots.
a breeze blowing from the land to the sea. It usually blows by night, when the sea is warmer than the land, and alternates with a sea breeze, which blows in the opposite direction by day. See offshore wind.
A small-scale wind circulation set off by differences in water and land temperatures along the coast. The land breeze develops at night and always blows from the land. Its counterpart is the sea breeze.
a breeze blowing from land out toward a body of water
a small wind produced when the air temperature over water is warmer than that over adjacent land; it develops at night and blows from the land out toward the water. The opposite effect is called the sea or lake breeze.
A localized wind that blows from land to the sea. Usually occurs in the evening hours.
a coastal breeze that blows from land out to sea, and is the result of temperature differences when the sea is warmer then the adjacent land.
A wind caused by the differential heating between land and water. During the night the land cools more than the water. This promotes higher pressure on the land surface and lower pressure on the water surface. Since air flows from higher toward lower pressure the wind flow is toward the ocean.
a breeze from land to sea, caused by the temperature difference when the sea surface is warmer than the adjacent land
A wind that blows from the land towards a body of water. Also known as an offshore breeze.
a wind moving from the land to the water during temperature changes in the afternoon.
A wind moving from the land to the water due to temperature changes in the evening.
A coastal breeze that blows from land to sea, usually at night.
