What causes the ah- to move? A change in temperature. Whenever air is heated It expands and therefore becomes lighter. When it becomes lighter it rises. As the warm air rises, cooler air flows in to take :s place — and this movement if air is what we call a "wind." There are two basic kinds of vinds. One is local winds, those hat may be blowing in your immediate neighborhood or through your town, or part ol your state. Then there are world-wide winds, which are winds that occur regu- arly in various parts of the world and generally blow the same way all the time. The trade winds and the westerlies are examples of these. They each blow in the same general direction all year round. Since winds are caused by changes in temperature, it is the nature of these changes which usually decides the speed of the wind, especially in the case of loc al winds. And since the earth is not heated equally everywhere cool air moves in to fill the place of rising warm air at different speeds, depending on these temperature changes. But the different speeds of the great surface winds of the earth are affected by the rotation of the earth. As the earth rotates differ ent points on the earth go arounc at different speeds. In the polar i region, a point on the earth covers less distance in one rotation, so it moves slower. At the Equator a point on the earth moves twice as fast. So winds that flow towards the Iquator have slower starting speeds and drag behind. Winds hat blow away from the Equator get ahead of the turning earth be- ause they start from regions of greater speed. Winds are sometimes identified or classified by their speed. A 'slight breeze" for example, is a wind of 4 to 7 miles an hour. A 'fresh breeze" is about 19 to 24 miles an hour. A "high wind" is 32 to 38 miles an hour. A "storm" is 64 to 75 miles, and a "hurri- :ane" is anything above 75 miles per hour! THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26,1963 By John Quite* ^ATTBRAU.1* WOULDN'T flWf .
